Well, the Iron Chef challenge was a great success. David made Vole vants from scratch and I made Vegie pasties. The kids loved both, going back for seconds and decided that we both won the competition therefore securing another cook off in the not too distant future.(They’re not silly) I was hot after I’d finished though and was happy to sit down and veg out after everyone was in bed.
Today we went to Prelude, which is an early intervention centre. We have been going there since Ivy and Noah were five months old. The twins were born at 30 weeks gestationa nd have been quite slow in their development. Belinda (our teacher) has done the most amazing job and now the babies are doing really well. It is a small group of five babies and their parents/carers. Some of the babies are special needs and some are premmie, like my two. Anyway, after today, we decided it was time for Ivy and Noah to graduate and leave Prelude as they are developing so well now. In a way I am sad that this time in our lives has come to an end but also really happy that the twins are coming along in leaps and bounds. There are two weeks left of term but next week will be our last as the following Monday is William’s third birthday. (William died at five days of age). I don’t think I will be in the right frame of mind for singing and dancing on that day.
I’ll probably take cake and a gift for Belinda and Vicki. I will really miss all the lovely girls there, I have met. Especially, Chloe and Michelle. I have a real soft spot for Chloe, who is a Downs Syndrome baby and Michelle, who is so courageous in all that she does for her daughter. I’m hoping to be able to keep in touch with her and with Mackenzie’s Mum, who lives close by. Mackenzie has two brothers, triplets, so we have a bit in common.
That’s it for now, noah is screeching because he can’t open my water bottle, so I’d better go and tend to him.
