6/12 – An almost Good Day

This morning was one of those mornings where I just could not get up, in the end I had 15 minutes extra in bed. We had s good morning routine, got out to the car forgetting that it was very frosty outside and we needed de-icing, I had nothing to scrape the windows with and we just had to sit and wait an age for the window to defrost enough for me to see. So today was the second school morning in a row we were a bit late. Only a couple of weeks ago I was telling someone how I am one of those people who is late for everything and yet since Munch has been here the only couple of times we have been late have been after serious meltdowns in the mornings, should have kept my mouth shut.

I had a word with the deputy head as Munch had one of his nose bleeds last night in bed, and had asked me with a look of glee on his face before we left for school what would happen if he had one at school today, I am sure remembering that they sent him home last time, so I am hoping not to get a phone call today.

Picked Munch up from school we came home, did his reading which he did very well, Munch went up to get changed and came down wearing his swimming shorts???? Oh well, he has a very strong will when it comes to his cloths, mostly I let him get on with it, if we are going out anywhere I will ‘help’ him choose, we were not leaving the house this evening so swimming shorts it was.

We played Junior Monopoly again his evening, just me and Munch then daddy joined in when he was home. This went on until tea, and then until bath. Munch had his bath came down and had TV until 8pm, then up for bedtime. I have noticed that Munch has got very lazy of late at cleaning his teeth, so on going battle commenced, I started by setting a timer for 2 minutes, and every time he wasnt brushing properly added another minute, this clearly was not working, so started taking away 1 of his 3 things that happen at bedtime, in the end he ended up with none, I said that from now on I would be brushing his teeth because I was very worried about his them as he does not clean them properly, oh what a fuse and he then bit onto he tooth brush, I realised that this was going to get us no where and just end up in one of those battles, so I just told him to go and get into bed.

He was just getting in to bed when he reminded me that I had said that I would get our Micky Mouse Garland for the front door out and show him and then put it on the door tonight, before I had chance to say I will just go and get it, he shouted, you lied, he has been told time and time again about calling people liar’s, so I told him what I had been about to say, but as he had not given me a chance and had called me a liar, I was not prepared to fetch it now and to just get into bed, he was not happy and hit me with his teddy, which he picked up to use, so I suppose I can give him credit for not using his fists or feet as he normally does. I just told him to get into bed, which he did, I asked if he wanted a hug and kiss to which he said yes and then he wanted to hug and kiss me which I let him do.

In all though another good day, just a bit off at the end. As hubby was home we had a lovely Chinese.
