Off we went this morning to spend a lovely day with Em & Jay in Melkbos. After a yummy breakfast we all went to the beach and Jason & I went into the water with a surfboard and a stand up paddle board (fun!), while the Grace and the ladies played on the beach.
Grace is so excited about Easter she is even eating imaginary eggs.
When I put Grace's shorts on this morning she immediately put her hand at her bum and started to pull them down. "What's going on? Grace, you need to keep your pants on," to which she replied, "Panties up my crack, panties up my crack!"
With no swimming lesson today Grace and I headed to the gym for a swim. We were a bit later than usual which meant there were people in the pool. Grace said, "No swimming," just being a bit of a pain that she did not have the entire pool for herself. So I told her that we would swim for 10 minutes and if she wanted to get out then, we could go.
Grace can be very picky about music. In the car she is currently loving (and requesting…no demanding) Lollipop by Mika. And recently we received the new season of Glee, and watching the music videos goes like this,
Grace and I go regularly go swimming at the gym, and, like everything, it has its rituals. Most of them happen after the swim. First its the shower to get warm after a swim, which includes "pick up, pick up" so that I can hold her under the spray. Quickly into her towel, then "something eat, drink some juice," but before that some clothes, followed by some hair drying underneath the hand dryer in the changing rooms. Then sit on a chair, demolish a juice, devour a snack, ready to go. Out the pool room, throw the juice box away, and go and stare into the kiddies play area. Off we go, out the door, crunch, crunch, crunch across the pathway stones and back to the car. Music! And we're on our way home.
