Project 365 2015 Week 8 Days 46-52

A photo a day, every day, for a year!

Day 46

We had to buy a Crelling Harness to keep Ethan safe in the car. We had to remove the five point harness of his car seat as he was getting too big for it. He could escape if we only used the seat belt, and we did try. On Sunday I fitted the harness into the car and we took it for a test drive.



Day 47

We walked into town to take Little E for her monthly weigh in, we spotted snow drops in the park.


Day 48

PANCAKE DAY! My favorite day of the year, it means pancakes for dinner. Lemon and sugar for me.


Day 49

We all picked Ethan up from nursery today and we chased the sunset all the way home. It’s quite hard taking a photo of the sunset on your mobile whilst in a moving car!


Day 50

This photo sums up our week. We had a nightmare with the boiler, three engineers later (fingers crossed) and it is working.


Day 51

Ethan has been in a throwing mood this week, everything is being thrown around the room. The higher he can climb to drop things the better it is. The TV is also something he has wanted to climb to complete this task. When he is in this mood it’s hard to get him to engage with anything else. In desperation I got out the ball run, I got his attention for all of five minutes before it joined his list of throwing!


Day 52

With Ethan’s throwing mood in full swing we had to get him out of the house. When Darren finished work we headed to the sea where Ethan threw rocks into the water!

  1. throwing rocks into the sea seems like a great way to let him throw things safely.
    Glad you have got a car harness that will help to keep him safe, save the worry of him undoing himself.
    Not the right time of year for the boil to break down, I hope that is it sorted.

      It did make me laugh that we took Ethan out and his throwing continued. Lets hope it is out of his system now!

  2. Glad the engineers managed to sort the boiler out for you. Interesting to read about Ethan’s harness – good that there are products designed to keep children safe when the standard stuff doesn’t suit.

      We were very worried about the car seat issue, we had no idea how it would work as he got older. Thankfully the harness has helped x

      Thank you. It comes and goes, if he is doing well in other areas the throwing starts. Perhaps it calms him down?! x

  3. The harness looks great, and I know someone else who uses the special harness for their little boy who’s like Houdini. Throwing pebbles on the beach is such a therapeutic experience. Fingers crossed, the boiler now works without a glitch.

      Thank you. We did put off getting the harness but we knew deep down we would need one. It’s great to know he is now safe in the car x

  4. Great photo of Ethan at the beach Jane! Glad you got him out, throwing can be annoying! We have balls being kicked around our house! Good to hear the bolier is mended x

      The throwing really is getting to us, no idea how to stop it. Getting out really is the best option at the moment x

  5. Lovely photo round up – it’s good to remember these moments even if they involve the boiler! I would have taken a picture of our new oil pump if I could! We enjoy throwing things too and it’s an issue at mealtimes – we are improving our catching skills. Hurrah for the beach

  6. Looks like a perfect solution taking Ethan to beach to throw stones galore at the sea – must have been worrying for you when he indoors and throwing. I somehow managed to miss pancake day but have made up for it a few times since (including this morning).

      He did, it did make us laugh that we wanted to get him out of the house to stop throwing. Yet we let him throw stones on the beach!

  7. I hope your boiler is all fixed now and I hope Ethan’s throwing phase doesn’t last too long – great to get him out of the house.

    1. Jane - Our Little Escapades

      Thank you, thankfully (fingers crossed) the boiler is being good. It was a complete nightmare x

    Eek! Sorry to hear about the boiler! That’s not good at all – fingers crossed it’s still working ๐Ÿ™‚ The harness sounds like a good idea!

    Thanks for linking up to #TWTWC xx

      The throwing still continued :0( The harness was just what we needed, we just had to admit it x
