It’s a pirates life for me – 19th March 2019

Today was pirates day at Toddler Sense. She woke me up by jumping on top of me. I knew I should get up but I really didn’t want to. I told her it was pirate day and Bella sung the Swashbuckle song with all the actions. I was so impressed as she’d never sung it before.

Bella got dressed in her little pirates outfit and I gave her her sword. She was going round saying ‘arg’

We got in the car and set off to Toddler Sense. We were going to go to Costa for our usual order before class but the traffic around town was horrible. We were getting no where fast so I decided we’d go to Costa after class.

There were a few children at the class that had dressed up. It was nice to see them all running around in their outfits. Not that I could get a good photo of Bella.

Bella was excited to see the giant bouncy castle was back. She surprised me by climbing up on to the castle with no help at all. Normally she needs at least a little boost but not today. She had fun climbing up the castle and sliding down and then she decided to try some of the other activities set out in the play area.

Bella found the plank and practiced crawling up one side and sliding down the other. She didn’t have to confidence to walk up the plank. She fell off a few times while crawling up the plank but she stuck at it and didn’t let it put her off.

Bella likes to collect the cones every session but today she collected them up and then matched the cone colours to the colours on the balance beam.

We off course tried Row, row today. As well as a few sea shanty’s with actions. Bella joined in and especially enjoyed rowing her boat using the elastic.

The main activity of the day was a sea journey. Everyone got in the boat and sailed off into the sea. They found lots of sea creatures along the way, including whales, sharks, octopuses and even Nemo. Bella especially loved finding Nemo.

The boat sailed under a huge white sail and then came across larger fish, bubbles and a beautifully lit jellyfish.

The final activity involved the children taking part in an obsicle course to find the buried treasure. Eventually the children found the treasure buried in the sand. It was a treasure chest full of sparkly pom-poms. The children enjoyed dancing with the poms.

After class we swung by Costa as I’d promised Bella. I picked her up a gingerbread man and my usual decaf tea. Bella’s face lit up as soon as I gave her the gingerbread man. Sadly we won’t be able to continue with our Tuesday morning Costas. We think Toddler Sense is too much for Bella so we’re planning on stopping her classes and giving her a break. We may return to it when she’s a bit older or try something else, we’ll see.

We got to the pub and I set up my little tea party of a cup of tea and a tea cake. I haven’t had a tea cake in ages. I love them. Bella was still in her pirate outfit so the pub was being plundered by a mini cutie.

After running around a playing for a bit in her pirate costume I changed Bella and we sat down to enjoy a drink with Nathan and Cathy. I love our Tuesday pub meetings. Bella was really interested in the Paw Patrol magnetic drawing board Nathan has so I was trying to encourage Bella to copy my writing. She enjoyed that activity so much we’ve ordered her one with her birthday money so we can play at home.

So we had a fun day being pirates and seeing Cathy and Nathan. A nice busy but chilled day. We will have to choose a new Costa day but we’ll come up with one. I’m not loosing my Costa.

Anyways, night all and let’s see what adventure tomorrow holds for us

Love CiCi x
