Oh September, where did you go? I know that time passes and all that but September just seemed to vroom past. Maybe cos so much happened. Wee Reader started preschool! And that’s a huge step for both of us as it’s the first time he was away from my care! I think I was more nervous. He amazingly only cried once, although it took a few days before he willingly stepped into the classroom himself. And another big step for him was toilet training! He’s had some accidents but is a happy and proud underpants-wearer! Meanwhile, Wee-er Reader is a cheerful and smiley five-month-old. He drools a lot, loves to be with people, and is all ready to be moving around – he’s always kicked himself into a different position in the crib each morning.
And on a more bookish note, plenty of good reading was had this month. Lots of chilling reads for RIP VIII, and a little bit of other genres to balance things out – and make sure I can sleep at night!
