Donné and Grace spent some time watching the rugby this morning, with Grace excitedly going "Ki, Ki" for them to kick the ball some more. The only thing Grace does not enjoy is that the live action can't be paused while she goes to do something else, and she admonishes Donné with "Pau, pau." Donné had to eventually "pause" by switching to a blank blue screen.
After Grace’s nap today she was walking around in her t-shirt and panties. She briefly had her pants on but when I looked again they were off. I told her that if she wanted to go outside she needed to go and put something on her butt, so off she went and returned with a tutu on. Not quite what I had in mind! I suppose the moral of the story is don’t give vague / non specific instructions – because you never know what you will get!
After a much improved swimming lesson – Grace actually swam with Charlene twice today – we came home and I asked Grace what she wanted to do. I provided about 5 different options all of which got a big "no" until I asked her, "do you want to play with your kitchen stuff?" This got a definite yes. What I didn't realise at the time, was what she was agreeing to was a re-enactment of yesterdays rice play. So instead of rice Grace had various beans, chickpeas, teabags, bay leaves and some spices (not the best combination cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg – definitely a strong smell). Once again lots of fun!
Grace loves to practice new skills she is mastering, at the moment I feel she is happiest if she can take off her pants and underwear and run around naked. She proudly says "nake" once she has her clothes off and usually does what Duncan refers to as a "naked run" around the house. This afternoon we were playing in the garden and when I was wasn't looking she took off her pants and panties and was standing in the flower bed saying "wee, wee." I guess it's not only boys that enjoy peeing in the garden 🙂
Grace had lots of fun today, playing/pouring LOTS of rice, beans, tea and cinnamon into various containers and the floor 🙂 A morning of sensory fun.
When I asked Grace what her favourite part of her day was, she said playing peek-a-boo with Karen and Caleb in Caleb’s bed.
Just two small stories about Grace and a business update from me.
Hiding the bunny in the cupboard at Vida is so much fun! It was so much fun we should review the video the next day – first unlock the phone, then select the camera, select the gallery and find the video….
