Me and Princess Lollipop had an even quieter day than usual as I had a tummy bug :-( Princess Lollipop must have been feeling a bit under the weather too as she hardly left my knee all day. When it was time for her afternoon nap, I rang Mr Messy and Mrs LMS at OUR shop and asked if they could pick Little Prince up from school, so that I could have a lie down with Princess Lollipop too, which they agreed to. I felt much better after our nap, although we would have both slept longer if the phone hadn't rung!! But it was someone calling about a job Mrs LMS had applied for, so I can't complain too much.

Mrs LMS arrived with Little Prince soon after me and Princess Lollipop got up from our nap, as I was feeling better she left me with the littlies and went back to OUR shop to get some more work done. She and Mr Messy are working on an aggressive marketing campaign together, which will hopefully bring more business our way :-) She also had to ring back the people who called her, and its much quieter ringing from OUR shop, than at home with the littlies running around.

Little Prince wanted to play on Lego Harry Potter again, so I agreed to play with him for a while. We have a spare set of Wii controls, with no batteries in, that Princess Lollipop uses to "play" too :-) We played for ages and had lots of fun :-) Princess Lollipop keeps reminding us "Get a coins" and "Missed one" while we are playing lol.

While we were playing Little Prince was telling me it was UNFAIR and he was very sad and upset that he had been passed from family to family and ended up here where he didn't want to be (he was grumpy at the time so I didn't take it personally lol). I agreed with him it wasn't fair that children are moved around like he was, but also pointed out that he couldn't have stayed with Birth Mum either. So this was the decision Social Workers had made to keep him safe. He didn't agree with this and said he wishes he could have stayed with Tummy Mummy anyway. Poor lad, I know part of this was frustration and general grumpiness, but it is still such a heavy burden for a small boy to process :-(
