James and I went to Sure Start today. I didn't realise it was the last one of the term and they were having a mini party. James always makes himself at home here. He managed to find an old push button phone with a long curly cord, he spent all morning obsessing with it. A older kid took it off him and James stalker him and as soon as he put it down James snapped it back up. He didn't even want to go outside on the slide. He just toddled around thrusting the phone at different people making them pretend to talk into it, they tried of give it back to him but he kept forcing it at them to carry on. I left him to it.
James had a major paddy when it was time to pack up, he didn't want to give his phone up. Crying was subsided by party food. Each children was given a bowl, James just sat as near to all the food as possible and gobbled it (who needs a plate). He wasn't interested in pass the parcel, though he didn't like the yo yo which he got. Had a lovely time. It completely worn him out.
We had a walk into town and picked up some cakes for this afternoon. I left James with James and went to help clean Grandmas house. Dad and Janet were there. We all tackled a room each, took a while but got it done. When I got home John had cooked Cottage pie, it was yummy.
James has discovered the joy of walking backwards, he makes him smile every time he does it. He also enjoys dragging things around at the moment. Trucks, telephones, electric cables and monkey in baby reins.
