Slowly returning to normality

Well Joseph is now 3 months old, he's so easy to look after I'm really lucky. He's not sleeping through the night yet but I've not slept through the night for years so what does that matter. He's just adorable but it's all going way too fast.

Life is getting back on track, looking after three little ones is not so bad, in fact I sometimes think looking after the big ones is harder, I just can't please them.

Leila has settled in well at nursery and she really loves it, problem is she's also picking up some of the less desirable behaviours of the other children. One of the things I really don't like about schools, you spend all your time teaching your child how wrong it is to hit and scratch and punch, but then they go off to school and see other kids doing it and go ahead and copy. *sigh*

I've had a meeting with Lucy's teachers and taken her to the drs where she has been referred to a child pyschologist for assessment.

Clever Girl

Today I was on the computer with Lucy showing her where I lived and grew up on Google Streetmap. She asked me to show her where Northfield was (where we go shopping sometimes) so I put her on the Bristol Road South (A38) and told her if she followed it along she would come to the shopping centre. So she did, then she turned left and followed that road. I asked her where she was going and she replied she was going to visit nanny. So I watched as she reached the end of the road, turned left and then turned right. Followed that road up and around and came to the church. She even found that she could zoom in on nanny's headstone (but you couldnt' read it)

I think she did really well, I doubt her daddy wouldn't have found it so easily.

I also think it's so nice that she remembers nanny, and knows where she is.

I just wish that nanny could see her and her sister and brother now.
