Good and bad day for me and the kids.
We had an interview at a posh English speaking school for the Mousie Magoo today. We knew it was a long shot as the website next year was already full up but the Director called us right away for an interview. Turns out he didn't read the application carefully - the Chief is an employee of a EU company here and their children automatically get a place at that school, but he's a contractor not permanent, so Mousie didn't get a place and he bluntly said that after about 2 minutes. We spent the rest of the time talking about the weather. He could have just asked on the phone.
But the Foo used the potty when asked this evening - without a fight. Potty training has been very slow with him, but he has glimmers of figuring it out. Ok, so he missed a bit and peed all over his feet, but I'm so chuffed all the same.
And Baby Bumptious self-settled this evening without the breast. First time in forever. Didn't even have to rock or pat her, she just whined her 'I don't want to go to bed' song for about 10 minutes and then went to sleep. Now if she'd just sleep longer than 2 hours at a time, I'd be a happy bunny.
9.30pm here and everyone's asleep. I should really join them, but kind of enjoying having the quiet house to myself.
