Magic Moments – 12/07/15

H’s birthday is coming up soon and so I asked Hubby to take our child for a hair cut.  “Just a trim”, I said, “so that he doesn’t look scruffy on his photos”.  On Hair CutTuesday morning he left the house as my little long-haired baby boy and he came back that afternoon as a grown up!  I know Hubby wasn’t happy that I had given him a task to complete on his day off, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he didn’t mean to break my heart with any malicious intent.  I was told that H was lucky to be returned with any ears left because of the amount of wriggling he did trying to fight the hairdresser off.  Apparently his face was a mixture of snot, tears, hair and white chocolate buttons.  I too shed some tears that evening but (pardon the pun) the new look has grown on me now.

With the haircut has come a massive shift in attitude. Everything is now “No Mummy”. He doesn’t know what he wants, all he knows is that he wants it now. Constant whingeing. Thinking up ways to distract him I even made him a set of drums from pots and pans as that was easier on the ears than the noise he was making. Desperate times!

In a last minute attempt to relax we packed the caravan up and nipped down Benllech Weekendto the coast after work on Friday. We spent a lovely long weekend in Anglesey. No Wi-Fi, no phone reception and no sunshine. But despite that we had a great time.  We enjoyed it that much that we have secured ourselves a caravan pitch for the rest of the season in a lovely little site where H can run around getting sweaty and entertaining the retired couples, and I can sit drinking wine from a plastic beaker whilst keeping my eye on him.  Heaven.

Have a good week everyone

    Yes, Ieuan was much the same. It’s as if as soon as the baby hair comes off they think “aha, I’m growing up”. Wish we had a caravan to escape in too. That’d be brill. #TwinklyTuesday

    Ahh you lucky thing having somewhere you can get away too, very jealous!! Totally agree that hair cuts turn boy babies into proper little boys…. It’s a bit sad to see them growing up, but happy s as well! Thanks for linking up #myweekataglance

    Aaaah caravans!!! HOW I love them 🙂 We bought ours 5 years ago — she’s called Dolly and has been on SO many adventures with us! 🙂 However, when we bought her, we were 2. Had no idea that we would become a family of 4 overnight — so her 2 berth status has just been chipped in for a 4 berth. A NEW (old) van for us to put our stamp on and have some more lovely adventures!! SO exciting!!! 🙂

    Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday — hope to see you again next week! x

      We had one pre-baby with a really comfy fixed double. We now have a new (old) one with fixed bunks instead and we rearrange the table and sofa to make our bed. Oh how things change!

    A haircut makes such a huge difference I think. As you said in attitude as well as looks. And I love a caravan 🙂 #myweekataglance xx

      There is just something about a caravan isn’t there. It’s a wendy-house for grown-ups. I love working out how I am going to arrange all the stuff in the cupboards. Is that sad? 🙂

    Ah he looks cute, the poor hairdresser I hate cutting children’s hair I actually find it traumatic, when my two were toddlers I used to put them in from of the tv with an ice lolly that kept them still for a while but in the salon it can be a nightmare as they just don’t keep still bless them, x

    Oh! A proper little gentleman! Too bad the attitude came with it… hopefully that’s temporary! Your photos from the coast look gorgeous. Thanks for joining #myweekataglance!
