Thomas has had another scan and all was well. He started preschool in September and despite getting into a few scraps and arguments about cars in the first few weeks he seems to be settling in well. We had a family trip with CHICS, www.chicsonline.org, to the Manchester ChillFactor. Thomas did some ‘lubing’ while Evan grumped his way around the snow play area. He wasn’t very into the snow. Ted and Becca are both back at work now and just about surviving the logistical challenges that ‘dual working parenthood’ bring. Difficult to say which is harder, work or refereeing the monkeys?
