a few days ago we found a cricket bat that had been left on the beach. after the owners not returning after a couple of days we claimed it. for the last two days Hugo has played cricket non stop. with small encouraging rolls as bowls to start with Hugo after a few turns, was connecting bat to ball 95% of the time. we went in for lunch yesterday and dad had the cricket on. after going back out after lunch he said:" mummy i need one of those hat thing that they wear" me: "which hat things?" Hugo " on the telly mummy. the men had hat and face things on" Me: "oh yes you mean a helmet i then explained what they were for, but as we were just in the backyard, i thought that it would be safe enough to play on as we had been. Hugo seemed happy enough and continued to bat ALL afternoon.
over the Christmas/January break we spent some time down at mum and dads on the mornington peninsula. we all have a great time as grandma looks after us all, cooking our dinners, playing with the boys. this morning Hugo didn't even get out of his Jammie's before going down to the sandpit ( putting green bunker !!)
one of Hugo'sFriendscelebrated his 4th birthday with a pirate party. after initial discussions about what a pirate was, and yes it is OK to dress up we made it. here are a few shots before the party of my little pirate
we arrived at alexanders pirate party and after the initial worry we had fun !!!
on the car in the way home "i think i would like to have a pirate party for my next one when i turn 5" !!!
a success i believe !!!its hard to watch Hugo like this as i know hw he feels to go somewhere out of his comfort zone, unfortunately he's got my traits in this area, a worrier, lack of confidence, shy; but hopefully he will grow in this area over the next few years
Today Hugo had his 4th birthday party at Kew Traffic school. it is a great area that you hire privately and children bring their bikes or scooters and ride around the child sized roads, catch a tram or a train, stop at the traffic lights, cross at the crossing.
