Oh this feels good...I think we have reached a new stage in the parenting cycle!! Yesterday we all went out to a small lake and took Luca's NEW bike. Also need to mention that we are in the process of toilet training (Luca!!) and so nappies did not need to join us on our outing! Luca being the capable rider that he is on his one day old bike was more than willing to join the girls on a ride around the Lake while Marcel and I walked steadily behind! What is so great about this...we were all able to go TOGETHER!!! None of the outings with one wheeling a pram or Luca on his tricycle and only managing to go a short distance or one of us having to push him along or carry him and said tricycle or help one of the girls!!! It was a great walk! And this now means that while Marcel is away I can manage three of them on a bicycle outing!!
Yes, sadly Marcel left for Malaysia this morning for a 3-6 week stint there. Four days home was way to short to have him spread himself evenly between the 4 of us!!
While he was here he had all three kids helping him make a really yummy orange and poppy seed cake that we ate for lunch!!
