I am sitting on Leo’s chair in a near-empty echofull flat. Today is move day and Leo is completely unfazed. Above is what he said when he woke up and saw his room.
We have prepared him for the idea but we were never sure how he’d react. Though of course we transfered our concerns to him (‘he’ll be upset by the chaos and being unable to find things…’), he didn’t accept them. Coming home last night, he stood in the front room and laughed.
Made of sticklebricks but tasted sweet all the same. When i picked him up, he was sitting at the table with a pile of sticklebricks before him. Naomi told me he’d earlier made a lollipop.
Overhearing, he grabbed 2 bricks (long bit, round bit) and made it again. He giggled when i munched it – then made a car and threw a bit of it into the ‘home corner’ – though its letterbox.
We saw Billy the cat in the garden. Leo immediately went to his bookshelf, got the ‘My First Number Book’ and opened it at the ‘One Fluffy Kitten’ page. He then shouted ‘Cat!’
Neither of us could pick Leo up on time last night, so he went home with Maddy for a little while.
They both enjoyed it a lot, Leo especially liked Maddy’s toy hoover. Both of them cried at Leo’s hometime.
Yesterday, he ran around the play area at nursery chasing after a frog. All evening, all morning and a bit tonight, he hardly spoke of anything else.
We are still in solicitors’ netherworld, not quite sure if we’re going ahead or not. Should be fixed this week but we have heard that before…
So it has soaked up what little energy i have after running round after him, hence the delay in this being updated.
