Messing around in the Garden

I had intended on writing a post for Magic Moments about when Monkey was very little, but today has changed my mind.

Monkey’s Daddy works very long hours and we only normally get to see him properly on Sunday’s.  A Bank Holiday Monday is a special treat as Daddy P is home for most of the day and has had a full night’s sleep – so he is wide awake for us – a rare event.

We decided to stay at home today and do some jobs in the garden.  There were shrubs that needed to be taken out in the front and back garden’s, a sandpit to construct and fill (more on that later in the week), plants and seeds to be watered.

It was just nice to see Monkey follow his Daddy around and just enjoy his company.  Wherever Daddy P went, Monkey and his lawnmower were never far behind.  When it came to watering Monkey’s newly planted seeds Daddy P got the hose out and Monkey thought he was a fireman – it was so funny.

So my magic moment is actually a Magic Monday, a magic day, where Monkey got to spend some quality time with his Daddy 🙂
