No excuses for why I haven't posted in so long. I just didn't. Even with running around after my (now) 21-month old little man, I still had time at the end of most days, and I just kept putting it off.
But as my mum reminds me at least once a month that I haven't posted in ages, well it is about time I did!
Riley is 21 months old now, this will be his 2nd Christmas. We decided last year (before his first christmas) that we will not get him lots of things. We will get him a couple of good quality things (This year is a Fisher Price Ride-to-Roll Scooter that starts as a buggy. He should get a few years out of it). A kids 'CD' player (It looks like a CD player, with buttons like a tape deck and it has these weird plastic discs instead of CDs). And a kids laptop that he can begin using for the sounds, buttons and music, and move onto learning letters and numbers etc.
And that is it. Oh and a pair of togs because OHs parents are getting him a paddling pool.
To me, Christmas is about spending time with family. Yeah pressies are cool, but to be honest, I much prefer spending the day with my family. We do have to split our time between OHs family and my family, and we are still trying to figure out a good balance because neither of us want to give up our tried and true family gatherings. At the same time, we don't want Riley to miss out on either set of grandparents. And I am not having it at our house every year! Once every couple is enough lol.
Have been sewing and crocheting it up, even made myself a new dress and top! (Believe it!)
