My new mindie started with me properly today. Long days for the little mite, his mum came round at 6am this morning and picked him up about 9.20pm this evening. Texted her throughout the day, as she was very worried about leaving him with someone whose not family, but he did brilliantly. He did cry initially, after she left for work, but he soon picked up with the twin joys of Thomas the Tank Engine dvd and tree blocks, and once my other mindie woke and Rye was up, well he was happy as larry. We did have intermittent tears, but that was just when he wanted something, or couldn't get something he wanted. Strange having a wee one in the house again, he's about the same age as when the little girl started with me, and she'll soon be 3 now.
He will be staying nights too, as his mum is a nurse, so to test it out a little, I did take him upstairs in the afternoon to see if he would settle and he did lovely, laid next to him and sang softly and he soon drifted off, I confess I drifted off too (well I was up at 5.20am lol). Few tears when he woke, but that was soon fixed with his drink bottle and a breadstick. :-) And oooh he loved tea, pasta with tomatoe sauce and garlic bread :-)
I have him tomorrow, another long day, and then Monday night, then a few days break. But, I think he will fit in just fine, tomorrow I'm kinda expecting him to be upset when his comes, as he'll know what it means now, but by this evening he was happy to sit and cuddle with me and read stories and what not, so he's starting to bond with me lovely, so I know he'll be fine and will settle down and have fun. It will just be me and him tomorrow as Rye is visiting with his dad, was suppose to be today, but tis the Triennial here, so we popped into town, but the crowds worried Rye a little so we didnt' stay long, plus I needed to get back for the little girl to be picked up after lunch.
Not much sign of this apparent heatwave though, well, it was warm, muggy in fact; but the sun didn't make an appearance until this afternoon and then it was very diluted. Perhaps tomorrow will be better, certainly the little one loves been out in the garden, so fingers crossed we can have a pleasant day out there; probably take him down to the park too.
Right bed, I need to be up at 5am; I couldn't be bothered to empty and refill the dishwasher this evening, so I'll have to do in the morning. Probably regret it tomorrow, but right now, my bed is calling.
