Me and Princess Lollipop had a long lie in, I think all the playing yesterday, followed by a late night made Princess Lollipop very tired. We then had a very quiet, leisurely day just pottering around the house. Princess Lollipop just seemed to want to snuggle on my lap, or lie on her back on her trampoline - I guess she is still tired!!

Mr Messy closed OUR shop early and came home, he collected Princess Lollipop and took her up to school with him to collect Little Prince. Mr Messy had arranged for one of Little Prince's friends to come round to play after he'd called at home to get changed first. Little Prince was very excited :-) When friend T arrived both boys ran off upstairs to play in Little Prince's room, this is a new thing for Little Prince as normally he is only allowed a few minutes in his room with friends before having to return downstairs to play under closer supervision! This came about as every time I allowed him and a friend to play in his room they would manage to break something or get out every single toy in there and refuse to tidy up!! The play time has gone very well, apart from one incident - they boys were trying to get themselves a packet of crisps, and managed to knock a box of cereal all over the kitchen floor!! Once Mr Messy had returned from picking Drama Teen up from her friend's house I got it all cleaned up - and to give credit where its due the boys had tried to vacuum the cereal up themselves :-)

Little Prince had chicken curry for tea, at his request, however, he said it was too spicey and threw it all in the bin! He ended up eating almost half a cheese pizza instead, roughly the same amount he would normally eat, when not on his new medicine.

He and Drama Teen played a game of Monopoly together, and Little Prince was THRILLED that he won :-) He put 4 houses on one property and when Drama Teen landed there she couldn't pay and he bankrupted her!! Even though he had played this with her, and he's been begging to play Monopoly for ages, as soon as the game was over he was grumbling about how little Drama Teen played with him!! This reaction drives Drama Teen loopy and she gets impatient with him and says she won't play with him any more!! We keep trying to tell him that he should try not to complain and remember the nice game he just played!!

At bedtime, he couldn't find his comfort Blankie (he has to have it to sleep) and so he was up and down from bed for ages! However, when I went to bed at 11pm he was already fast asleep, which is the earliest he has been asleep since starting his new medication :-)

Unfortunately Princess Lollipop decided this would be the perfect opportunity to refuse to go to sleep and she was downstairs with Daddy until midnight!! When he brought her to bed she did, under protest, finally go to sleep!!!
