I meant to do a shoot of this while she was actually doing it but I did not get round to it and she stopped doing it sooner than I thought she would.
She was using a different cup, but she seemed to not be able to control how much she got from that one that much.
She creates a pond when she drinks from this still, but long story short it seems better.
I need to do the shoot after this too.
I did not know it was going to be a quiet week so I was on edge a bit, but then I realised I just needed to make the most of it as I was tired.
Typically it would have been a good week to do my funding application, but oh well. The deadline has passed now and I only started to come up with ideas of things to work on next yesterday and today anyways.
Good planning (I hope).
I keep a list of things to talk about and I did not even talk about them all – I spent too long whining later on as you’ll see.
I nearly signed up yesterday but thought I better leave it in case I had things to do. I felt really tired this morning, and then the weather was rubbish and then I got a couple of emails to deal with anyways.
Typical. She was awake when I went to get her up this morning, but being really chill. I do not know how long she had been awake for, so I should have put her to bed 15 minutes earlier really. You live and learn.
We have a big box of spices and then a smaller one on top. The cinnamon is usually there, but the cayenne pepper is normally not.
I’d put lots of milk in so it was floating on top.
I should have just emptied it out, but I hate wasting things.
If I had measured it out I would have noticed the colour and then checked the label. To be fair it is in a glass container, but I obviously was not paying attention to the colour then. Classic.
You live and learn.
It’s Joe Wicks’ butternut porridge but I can’t find the recipe online.
I’ll try it before giving it to B tomorrow. Looking at websites they say it’s best to wait until 12 months to introduce cayenne pepper to babies.
I should just really eat that batch of porridge and make B a new batch. She might just have to have plain porridge tomorrow, or she can have the carrot porridge that she used to have (also a Joe Wicks recipe).
(14th March: I tasted it the next day and I did not notice it at all. If anything it actually tasted fresher than usual?)
I should have said in the hashtags that even with all the whining I love her so much. It’s exciting to see her personality develop.
She did it in such a funny way. I hope this does not sound mean. I can just walk into the room and she’ll jump…
He went to pick up some food so I knew she would still be eating in her high chair when he came back.
I jumped so high. I think last time Tiago had a hat on so it took her longer to recognise him…
I’m sure most do right?
Did I really write this many hashtags about this…
I could see from a distance it was busy and so I started counting. I did debate going in, but the sign is there for a reason.
Also, I’ve gotten this far without getting Covid, so I want to reduce the risk (though I go on group walks and want to go to baby classes, but some kids get so close to us in there).
How many awkward glances can I make towards them?
In the past I have waited but B was a lot younger so I thought fair enough their kids are older. Now that B enjoys going on a swing more, I really wanted to let her go on one. Plus we usually only stay for 5 minutes and the baby swings were free.
I thought the wait would be over soon. I felt awkward telling them, but when I’m pissed off I care less and so am more likely to say something.
I did not want to stand right next to the gate as it is an awkward place to stand, but maybe I should next time. They probably just think I’m waiting for someone or something.
A woman explained to her two kids that it was over capacity. I felt bad and said you can go in if you want, but she said they try to follow the rules though it is difficult with kids. I felt bad.
Then a guy came along with 3 kids. I felt awkward saying something but the woman and kids had literally just left. It seemed like he was just going to go in anyways but he stood right by the gate (maybe he thought I wasn’t waiting?). Eventually they went off to play in a field – I walked past later and they were having fun so I felt less bad.
She walked to the gate via an awkward route due to where I was stood, so she might have just not heard me. So 5 people just went in, so we were definitely going to be waiting a while.
By this point I felt invested in making it into the playground. It’s the last day of half term, so it should not be a problem for a little while now.
I’m sure people are reading this and thinking ‘lol you actually follow those rules?!’ I just feel awkward and guilty very easily. Some people might have judged me for going in like I judged them, and like I said I do not want to catch Covid. Long Covid does not sound nice.
My Nan has had a vaccine but she still might react badly to getting Covid. he playground isn’t that big, and if you want to stand in the same spot for 10 minutes then stand on the other side of the playground fence?
I want to get to know people in the area, but I don’t think the way to do it is by getting pissed off and then saying something that just gets me known in a negative way. Frustrating. I feel like I did recognise quite a few people today.
I guess the rules are being relaxed soon, but I do feel a little nervous about it all.
I said hi to her the other day as we’ve seen her quite a lot. She said ‘you alright?’ but I just smiled. So today I asked her how she is and she was talking to B, and then we talked about her dog. It was nice. I would have chatted longer, but I was blocking the path. I should have just moved, but I did not want to block her and maybe she only wanted a short chat? Welcome to my boring mind.
B took no notice, but I thought it was sweet that she willing to potentially feel a bit silly for B. Or maybe it was for her own amusement? Anyways, it was fun.
Time to do a shoot… I miss my plain wall.
I used the cupboard in the end, and I also realised that I can’t remember how B had her hands while drinking from the top. I also was trying to work out if it is actually easier to drink from the top than the bottom. I don’t know… I guess if you drink from the top then you don’t have to lower it so much to drink from it. After doing this shoot I think she actually might have just been teething on it more than drinking from it, but again I’m not sure.
