DAYS 5 TO 8 OF 10

Starting to miss his Mum and Dad.
Been trying to keep Riley busy so as he doesn't miss his parents too much.

Today he gave the horse around the corner a carrot

Sat in the new little Ikea tent having a snack of cheese, apple and carrot sticks
Loved having the little car track coming into the tent and laughed like mad when it ran off the track onto the floor

Decorated some cupcakes that he helped make
(Forgotten how much stuff you have around the place when you permanently have a little one with you)
Enjoyed an ice cream with his cousin Chloe at Wednesday night family dinner. This week we went around the corner to daughter Melanie's house for dinner instead of my house

I think he's a Blogger in training - loves using the camera and had fun looking at himself in the mirror of the toy dressing table and actually getting a half decent photo. Amazing that at 2 1/2 he does take a few good shots

Chain Saw Gang - Tuesday afternoon I picked Lachlan and Chloe up from school so they could have a play with Riley. They made themselves crowns out of the car track and then got out Riley's toys - chain saw, hedge trimmer and tool box

Monday Melanie came around for a coffee and read a story to Riley

It has been fun having Riley. Feel a bit sad when he starts asking for his Mum and Dad and gets a bit teary eyed.
They are due home 8.00am Sunday morning.
Should be a tearful reunion.
Just noticed that this is post 198 so sometime next week come back as I will have a Giveaway for my 200th Post

You must be getting tired too. It's tough trying to keep a toddler busy, but it looks like he's had some fun!

dear Alison...those photos are tooo cute for words...

He is lucky to have AWESOME grandparents like you & hubby..
he will remember this ALL his life...

It is upsetting when they miss their mum & dad..although I think it is maybe worse for the parents missing their precious little one..
(i know i did when i took byron to canada when he was 6yo & left christain (4yo) at home with my mum & dad...I felt really guilty!!
(we were visiting my hubby who was studying overseas for 3 MONTHS!!) i had a good excuse ?? visiting hubby?? lol..

I bet Riley is past missing his parents now and having a great time with you sounds like you have been keeping him busy. Have a great Mothers Day. Carol

The little guy has lasted a good long time before missing his mum and dad. I feel for him. It is the home stretch now! You are certainly keeping him busy with lots of fun stuff and lots of love.

Hi Alison

How cute your photos are!
You're an awesome Gandma! Not sure if I'll be up to your standards when and if my time comes - LOL
Glad to see the horse is still around, I haven't walked down that way for ages

Have a Happy well deserved Mother's Day
