Because of yesterday's Friendship Friday post, I even made some effort to chat to one of the girls after the class whereas usually I just dash out of there.
OH! slightly good news - I've lost .2 kg over the month (that's not the good news) but I've dropped 1% in fat and my heart rate's come down to the 70s. Now that's the good news although I still want the scale to show big losses!!!
When I collected Connor, we chatted on the way out and I'd just buckled him into his car seat when he told me "a little girl" pushed him.
Me really? and then what happened?
Connor little girl went to time-out
Me (thinking "fabulous. there's consistency with what we do at home") oh? and who put her in time-out? Rachel or Pumi?
Me Wait, Connor. Who put the girl in time-out?
Connor CONNOR! Little girl naughty! Connor said, 1. 2. 3. Time-out.
I laughed and then told him next time, he should just tell her, "no, no pushing" because little kids are not allowed to put other little kids in time-out.
He was not convinced but we'll see :)
Then in other news, we went to Gillooly's Farm (last time we went the babies were 7 months old!) and it was just lovely.
I packed a picnic and when we arrived, D and I realised we didn't pack caps or suntan lotion for the kids.
Parents of the Year!
So I made him give up his cap to Kendra and I plonked mine on Connor's head.
Still, I was being all spontaneous and in-the-moment so didn't even think of going back home and messing up our plans.
And it was lovely.
I also played with the other lens that came with my camera.
I don't know what all those numbers mean that I keep seeing on the photo blogs (50 mm 1.4 etc. what in the Sam Hill?)
The lens that's normally on my camera says 18 - 55 mm and then .25 m macro.
And then the one I used in the park today says 75 - 300 mm, macro 1.5 m (I suppose you can't go closer than 1.5 m to shoot up close?) and zoom lens 1:4 - 5.6 (???)
All I know is it zooms in nicely but when I downloaded, about a third of the pics were blurry and the others were stunning with some gorgeous blurry backgrounds.
And so I crossed three things crossed off the list today - intentionally playing with the camera (I told D we need to do this again - kind of like a photo shoot but only free and no good pics guaranteed!), 4 times to gym with the kids and doing something fun with the kids. Yay!
How was your Saturday?
PS I took 160 pics today (yes!) before I started deleting. Oy! No wonder photo organising is on every weekend's to-do list.
