5 years

Kaydin is 5 on Friday! How on earth did that sneak up so fast? We've had so many "last" moments and more to come. Weds is his last school visit before he starts, Friday is his last day at playschool (and also his birthday), Monday his last day off before his first day of school on tuesday. He's excited about school and likes his teacher (which is lucky).
I'll have to bring plenty of tissues on tuesday for me...

Kaydin's dental surgery was supposed to be tommorrow but unfortunatly he woke up at 5:45 this morning with diarrhea. Rung the healthline who said he sounds ok and can be managed at home but i should ring the hospital and let them decide whether they want to continue or not. So rung hospital and left a message and yup they would prefer to postpone it which i thought they would. The hospital appointment lady si going to try to bring other appointments forward and hopefully find kaydin a space within the next couple weeks, also has him down if there are any other cancellations.
Hopefully he can get in at least a week before he starts school i don't want him to be having days off while he's still getting used to going somewhere 5 days a week so fingers crossed x

Weekend away

Kaydin, his dad and i went away for the weekend at the family bach. We took my new car up (much more economic petrol wise) and left Friday night. Got up there just before 7.30pm so had plenty of time to settle in, watched movies and went to bed late. Saturday was raining off and on so just stayed indoors. Kaydin played plenty of games, watched tom and jerry and then he and dad (mostly dad) made a spaceship out of the lego that is up there which kept them both occupied for an hour while i did some knitting. Had a lazy sunday morning just tidying and getting ready to go. Unfortunatly kaydin lost his Ironman toy right at the last second before we left and although we went back inside and searched EVERYWHERE we couldn't find it. He was very upset because he tried so hard not to lose it all weekend but hopefully someone will find it and bring it back down for him. Had a nice drive back very sunny, stopped to get coffee and then again for lunch when we were nearly home. After getting home i then had my cousin's baby shower which was great, its very exciting to join in with the pregnancy buzz and also to catch up with family. So all in all a great weekend was had!

Music Star

Today Kaydin delved into the musical side of his personality. He has always been into music be it listening to music (songs and instrumentals) singing away himself or playing instruments. Today he found a Ukeleile (sp..) and started strumming away. Then i had to sing various nursery rhymes while he played the music. Once some other children had joined us he went and got more musical instruments and we had quite a neat little band playing with children from 7months to nearly 5yrs. we had Ukeleile's, triangles, drums, xylophones, clarinets. it was really delightful to see. (photos to follow once i've found time to upload them)

Right from early though i've noticed and tried to encourage his interest in music. a friend of mums plays in a band and we went to watch them perform and he just sat in his pushchair absoloutly spellbound. The cutest has to be one day when we were driving i heard this little singsong voice in the back happily singing "Happy birthday to me, all-by-myself. Happy birthday to me, all-by-myself"

Hopefully when he starts school he will be able to learn more about music as i have never been any good and havn't been able to extend his learning. Right now i think it would be great to have a budding musician in the house but im sure when he's a teenager with a band pounding music in my garage i may not be so convinced :)
