Starting Nursery & Admitted To Hospital

The second week of January has come and gone already and we are getting closer to meeting our new arrival.

We fitted the baby’s car seat in to the car ready for when we bring him/her home from hospital. It seems so weird to have two car seats in the car, we’re actually going to have two children in the back of the car!

This one started Nursery this week. We’ve not been in a financial position to pay for him to go to nursery at any point (my goodness nursery fees are expensive) so we waited until he got his 15 funded hours.

He now goes three days a week (Tues-Thurs) for 5 hours a day, we thought it would work well for us as we still have Monday & Friday free if we want a long weekend away and he’s getting a longer day at nursery with a meal which he wouldn’t normally get if he went for 5 x 3 hour sessions.

He seems to have settled in really well, we get a little sheet of paper at the end of each day to let us know what he’s been doing and he’s been doing a variety of things including Sand Play, Outdoor Play & Construction. He’s also eating his meals which is great to hear.

Today though hasn’t been a great end to the week. We were expecting it to be fair though (more details in last weeks post) but here I am finishing my weekly blog post from my hospital room. It’s only the first day so I’m still ok but I can imagine by the end of this week it’s going to be pretty dull.

My dinner was nice though, roast beef & all the trimmings (not bad for hospital dinner). I think I must be the only person I know who actually enjoys hospital food.

I’m sure I’ll have more to update you all on next week, but it may be a boring one if I’m in here. Who knows maybe bump will decide to do a flip over and go head down (we can hope).

See you next Monday!
