Another successful day!

Although perhaps slightly less successful, we did do well today. The washing up went ok with the main difference being that Lexi seemed only interested in washing the outside of things... In the end I had my own sink with soapy water and I washed and Lexi rinced. She really didn't seem to mind this. 

Morning tea was a cupcake, of course! 

The rain, once again, didn't eventuate, so we watered the garden instead. Well, Lexi watered the garden and I tried to stay out if firing range! 

Next I pulled out some Thomas flannel and did some sewing. I wasn't really sure where we were going with this, but after some Pinterest browsing we decided on pajama pants, of which we are in short supply. Lexi got the hang of sewing quite quickly. 

We also made a bag out of the leftover material. 

The afternoon found us taking a quick walk up to the shops to buy elastic. We took the trike and Lexi had her first successful attempt at peddling and steering herself. 
She was pretty pleased with herself. 
Another successful day!

Successful fun Mum morning

The forecast is rain all week... So along with the fact that Lexi will be in daycare an extra day and miss her swimming lesson this week, I'm determined to give Lexi a fun two days home!

We start with playing in bubbles... 

Washing up that is. Lexi is very big on role playing and is always extremely jealous when Mummy or Daddy play in the bubbles in the sink, so she must have been over the moon when I stood her at the sink full of bubbles!
She washed all her things along with some wooden spoons etc. She asked for more when finish all her things but her attention span expired with just a couple of wooden spoons and cups. Thoroughly enjoyed it! 

Next muffins!

Lexi has a bit of a fear of electrical things that make noise, so I had to hold her at first when the beaters were on but she soon got the hang of it. 

We washed Lexi and the bathroom sink while they were cooking, and then did some guitar playing while they cooled, and then... There was the icing! 
No photos of the icing process as it was a bit messy for the camera... 

And of course, the taste testing! 

And the final step is the clean up, of the chef that is! 

Combined with some bath painting/cleaning. 

Which, along with some cuddles and booking reading on the lounge, brought us right up to nap time! 
Now to figure out how to fill the next day and a half...
