I know this is a little bit late. The start of September has been so busy because of course, we have Jess starting school and her 5th birthday. August was the last month where Jess and Troy would be together all of the time. I am sure that Troy is going to miss her. No doubt he can barley remember a time when they were not together.
This has not been my favourite month I think this is because of the fact that I ended up spending a week in isolation. I had symptoms of COVID however, it was not actually the virus at all. This means that Jess and Troy had to get used to sharing Daddy instead of me for a change. This is when they spent a lot of time playing together and doing things on the switch. Of course I was not allowed to be anywhere near them which was awful.
We have spent a lot of time in the outdoors as well this month. We wanted to make sure that we made the most of the nice weather we have tried a couple of new parks. I think they are ones which we are going to be next year and of course, by then Troy will be able to play on some of the things.
Apart from trips to the park this month we have had to go shopping for clothes. This means that Jess has been trying to entertain Troy when we have been out. We managed a couple of meals out which was fun because this is the first time we have had a meal out since Troy has been weaning. Jess does find it funny to see him eating when we are out. I think she is liking sharing meals and her toys with him.
They are been playing together more at the moment. Jess has got some of her Happyland toys out which she has had for a long time. This is one of the first things which they can play with together and it is really nice to see them playing together and sharing. This is something which we are going to be able to be able to do more of in the future as Troy grows and can play with more toys.
Since we never can predict what is going to happen next. In this crazy year who knows what September holds for us. Jess will be starting school and me and Troy will be getting into a new routine but there is going to be no baby groups to attend for us still. Who knows I might have to get on the floor and play with him. I have lost that job while Jess has been home that’s something she has been liking to do.
Let’s see what September brings when I celebrate 5 whole years of parenting.
