Last night Ryan was up till 11.40pm – my fault for letting him sleep all morning and then an afternoon in the car, so not enough physical activity. But on the upside he stayed in his own bed until 6.30am, which was a nice change.
We met Donna at the Splash Centre for swimming and they had lots of laughs. Ryan wasn’t keen to climb out when it was time so he was lifted out, while protesting loudly, but was okay once we headed to get changed.
“It was lovely to swim today. We laughed so much. There was a song playing, Budapest by George Ezra. We sung along. Ryan enjoyed the ooohhhhh bits.” Donna
I had to look it up on YouTube and it’s a song thats on the Curious George soundtrack, which is where Ryan has heard it. I forgot he likes that song 🙂
At home Ryan had a long bath then a shower.
A friend came over, with her son, for a playdate but Ryan wasn’t the best company and wouldn’t share his toys or talk nicely. We ended the visit before anyone got hurt (Ryan was a bit pushy/shovey) and not settling. It was nice to have some adult company for a while but obviously not the right timing for Ryan today.
After lunch Ryan asked for another bath then shower but was out quick as he had used up all the hot water. He helped do laundry and chatted while I made Anzac biscuits and Chocolate brownie. I asked him to help but he wasn’t interested. He used to eat Anzac biscuits so I am hoping he eats some from this lot.
Poor Flash is still suffering from a sore infected tail and is going back to the vet for more surgery tomorrow. So today he has been on his favourite blanket in a washing basket and had lots of cuddles. We have to keep reminding Ryan to be super gentle, and Flash was tucked away in my room most of the day.
I tried to get Ryan interested in Reading Eggs and Mathseed but he just pushed the touchpad away, and was the same with books. He just wasn’t in the mood for anything much. I kept getting him drinks, Nutella toast and chicken potato chips, as he has been hardly eating for days, and he slowly snacked all afternoon.
At dinner Ryan got his painted food rocks and kitchen scales out and was asking me to read him the numbers as he added rocks. He ate most of his French toast for dinner (another food he had been refusing for the last few weeks) so hopefully with more food in his belly he sleeps better.
Stefan read him 4 books at bedtime (not sure why he was allowed to read to him and I wasn’t earlier but oh, well!) and he fell asleep not long after tuck in.
