Every week I look at The Reading Residence’s very interesting linkup Word of the Week, and try to think of a word that’ll sum my week up. Usually I find that every day has been so varied and different, there’s no theme or word to define the week.
This week is very different.
Here’s the first clue why:
Yes, we introduced Noah to food. It was a bit of dilemma as to whether we’d wait or go for it. I’m glad we started except it’s been a messy experience of course! The wiping of the table, floor, arms, head, and other places is a thing I’d forgotten about weaning James.
I’m also trying to combat the dust in the house. James has allergy testing on Monday and we’ve had to stop his antihistamine before he goes. His snoring in the meantime is astonishing and we are all bleary eyed because of his repeated night waking.
So I’ve been wiping and dusting.
And as a consequence of not having antihistamines, I have also spent a lot of time wiping James’ nose.
So this morning, when James asked to do painting, and when I said no, baking, it was fake baking he’s had to do – just because I can’t bear any more wiping! Fortunately we are using reusable wipes, because I dread to think of the cost of all the wet wipes I’d have gone through!
