Seaside…

Yesterday, in the midst of the UK’s non-existent summer, Sawyer spent the day at the seaside. It was a school outing, so thankfully I didn’t have to deal with any of the problems shown above. A day off school the previous day, to hopefully rid the little man of the germs he’d recently picked up had seemed to do the trick; he’d simply passed them onto me!!! ๐Ÿ™„ The trip was an early start and we wanted to make sure he was fully up for the journey. We needn’t have worried. An excited 5 year old was up, dressed in record time, loaded up with pack-up, bucket & spade and beach wear (aged 18-24 months. He’s not grown an awful lot!!!). At 7.45 AM we arrived at school (we were the 1st people to arrive!!!) and I said farewell to the little man…

Nine hours later the little man returned. He was wearing 2 pairs of trousers (apparently he’d been cold) ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Most of his packed lunch remained uneaten, he was minus 2 buckets & a spade, and had sand in every sock, shoe, bag & orifice. All in all, a good time had been had by all. Back home we plonked our sandy little boy into the bath, whereupon he found a razor and attempted his first shave ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Let’s just say that the tiny little cut on his lip could’ve been a wholeย lotย worse…

Life-lesson No.16 - Razor-blades are very sharp.
