I have had such a lovely day with Alex today. In fact I wish he was this well behaved every day, life would be easy then.
I decided I HAD to get out the house today even though it was so cold. He enjoyed the bus journey, I enjoyed the shops. He fell asleep half way round (which never happens)!
Grabbed myself (well Alex) some bargains in ELC in their arts and craft sale, some 'crazy painting' tools, stencils, paper and scissors. Too be honest I could have bought him more but stopped myself! So those will keep us busy next week.
AND FINALLY after a month or two of looking I found Alex a suit for an upcoming wedding. I refused to spend the typical £35-45 on one, and dispite my discount I still find Next quite expensive, especially considering he is only going to be in it for an afternoon. Couldn't believe that I found a matching suit in our outlet Next, the trouser are 18-24 instead of 2-3 but thankfully they just about fit and it all came to £17 (and I have been bidding on second hand ones on eBay for the same sort of price).
Alex made me giggle a lot too:
-He spent 5 mins running around a section of drains, just going around in circles and enjoying the noise it made.
-I was surprised when he asked where 'ho ho ho' (father Christmas encase you wondered) was in the train at our outlet village, didn't think he'd remember that!
-In Asda he started singing along to Million Dollar Bill which as far as I'm aware he hasn't heard before, but he joined in with the 'Woah Oh Woah' bits and kept saying 'again, soon' when it wasn't that bit.
-When we came home and mentioned 'Grace' a friend's child we bumped into in town today, he said he wanted to give her a 'miss' (kiss) then looked out the window and said 'no too dark outside'.
-When trying on his suit he said 'Daddy trousers' as James where's smart wear for the restaurant work.
We had a lovely little chat before I tucked him up too, he's growing up too quickly.

Have your children done anything today to really make you smile?
