Yup we're officially crazy. With a baby on the way, we get a kitten!

M managed to get a week off work recently, and we were lucky enough to squeeze in two day trips: one to an animal park and one to a field to view an airshow.
The airshow was fab and the park and view option meant we didn't pay £90 entrance only to have a tired, grumpy toddler declare they want to go home. The farmer provided toilet facilities and there was a catering van. Top it off with beautiful sun and it was almost perfect.
The animal park was a lovely day too. There were plenty of baby animals to coo over, we saw penguin feeding and went on a small train ride around the park.
Inspite of generally rubbish weather, we had a lovely time.

I see a lot of posts online now which say they have fantastic ideas for teaching your toddler to read, write, count etc, but I'm not sure how I feel about these. Surely this age should be allowed to play and learn as and when they're ready, not have it sneakily forced on them? I'm no saying I want my daughter to be illiterate when she starts school, far from it, but I want her to learn in the best way for her, and personally I feel that involves play. My daughter likes colouring and counting but in her own way. Educational games do not interest her at all. Originally I was a little worried but now I know she'll do it when she's ready.

We've grown another little one, due end of October. That makes me 16 weeks yesterday.
Because of feeling generally rubbish the last 16 weeks, I have two scrapbook kits sitting unused. We're due to go to france soon so hopefully when I come back I can get them out.

Easter weekend, as usual, was four, glorious days long. To top it off, M took an extra days holiday so we had five days together.
We ate out, Even had her first cinema experience, saw family, ate ice cream, went to parks, played crazy golf. But most of all, we did it together. It was lovely.
