This past week Mum has come with me to Sara's place while I look after the three kids. She's managing all right for the most part, in spite of frequently forgetting the kids' names and repeatedly telling Charlie that she has a boy's name. Here are some pictures from our week.
Mum occupied the kids, or they occupied her for nearly an hour the other day throwing the ball up and down the slide. Charlie sure looks like she's having a good time.
Charlie, Mum and Max on our walk this afternoon. I'm ahead of them with Eloise in the stroller.
Mum reading a book to Eloise - a frustrating exercise since Ellie just wants to turn the pages and Mum thinks she should be listening to every word she reads. It's a wonder they interact as well as they do given the 87 year age difference!.
