330. Paddling pool. Pouring and splashing [SBL]

This week has been so brilliantly hot, we just had to bust out the paddling pool! I put it in a shaded area, got Daniel's swim trunks and towel ready, and sun-creamed him up (for the millionth time that day!) He got so excited, running backwards and forwards with me while I filled it up, and jumped in as soon as I said it was ready! He ran back into his kitchen and got the cups himself, while I grabbed a couple of jugs some bowls and sponges (that I had picked up that morning from Poundland) so he could explore pouring the water into the different containers. This kept him entertained for absolutely ages, he kept getting out, wandering off but soon coming back. His beautiful Godmother Danica was a great sport, holding whatever jug/bowl/cup was asked of her while Daniel poured water into it, and all over her! He liked pouring with the jugs the best, and squeezing the water out of the sponges.

I've been doing a lot of solo-parenting this week, Colin's out again tonight, and it's really taking it's toll. I'm watching The Bachelor with a Diet Coke (caffeine free, but I can't even taste the difference!) & my littlest man, before heading for an early night! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Lots of Love
