Oskar and I went to Nan and Grandad's yesterday while Mum went to the dentist. We had fun playing about at Nan's and watching TV before Mum came to collect us. I was very happy to see her, but she didn't look too flash. After we got home she sat on the couch and kind of sunk into it. Oskar and I kept checking to see if she was okay, and she was still there when I got pushed off to bed far too early by Daddy. This morning, Oskar, Mum and I all played about on the floor with puzzles, books and drawing on pictures that Oskar printed out from the computer. Then we noticed that Mummy was looking kind of dazed. She then went off to bed and stayed there for ages. Oskar told me that she had a sore mouth, so I thought I'd try to cheer her up. I climbed up on the bed and jumped up and down while yabbering happily at the top of my voice. Then I found the clapper that we got from the Tour Down Under, so I jumped up and down on the bed while waggling the clapper and yodelling as well for good measure. For some reason, Daddy thought that Mum might not have been cheered very much by my actions so I left her to it. When I woke from my nap she was still there and I got to have a quick snuggle in bed before she finally got up. Happily she perked up this afternoon and we all went for a lovely walk to the gingerbread house park up the road.
Far more exciting than Mum's mouth-ache is the fact that I have a new bike! It appeared last weekend in the garage. Oskar and I surveyed it for a little while before I climbed on all by myself. I had to claim it as mine because Oskar really liked the purple streamers hanging from the handlebars and I thought he might pinch them for his bike. Oskar's bike is very plain compared to mine! I fit on the bike really well and can happily touch the pedals with my feet. Now I have to learn how to pedal. We went around the block; Mum or Dad pushed me while I steered - it was great fun. Daddy tried to get me to keep my feet on the pedals and circle them around, but I thought it was more fun to let my legs hang and have Daddy push me. Maybe tomorrow I'll try pedalling.
