Jamie, as I say often in these blogs and will continue to say, is such a great mommy and Reagan really does flourish because of the time and effort she puts in to stimulating that young fresh mind. Things as simple as talking to Reagan all day and constantly involving Reagan in everything she does helps her development, reading to her and showing her the pictures in the book is fantastic see if you watch just how fascinated Reagan is what mommy is doing. Thing is mommy has to be able to leave her to amuse her self at times so that she can get on with things around the house and although she has hanging toys over her in her bouncy chair we have found CBeebies is a great Reagan sitter…it’s something that before becoming a parent I would have said is just a lazy way of avoiding actually interacting with your child but since Reagan came along and seeing just how many hours we put into making her life rich and fulfilling 30 minutes in front of the telly watching very colourful and at times educational programming can be a necessary distraction that allows us time to get stuff done.
I went swimming with the women yesterday, at the Lifestyle Centre where Jamie goes to work out, and was so proud of how confident Reagan was. We all got into our swimming gear and walked to the small family pool where Jamie got in and I handed Reagan to her then followed then in. It was interesting to see her lock her eyes on yours, just like bath times, trusting her whole life in you and being confident enough to kick and splash vigorously enjoying the experience even when water goes on her face. It was a wonderful experience for me to see what they do when I’m at work and I got so much from it I was also very impressed with the Centre itself too. (No photos because it’s not allowed)
I watched me first World Cup final last night thinking if I wait to see England in one I may never see one? My impression of the match was Spain were the better side and Holland should be ashamed of themselves for their bullyboy tactics choosing to kick lumps out of the Spaniards instead of playing football. I also think if we’d played Spain at any point in the tournament it would have been an even more embarrassing exit than it was at the hands of the Germans…! I will of coarse ‘believe’ again that we can win a trophy when the European Championships start in a few weeks time, that’s just what we do as England fans?
