December 2015: Becker
December 2015: Kevin and Holly Becker are 66. Claire Becker is 28, Edward Becker is 26, Julian is 4 and William is 1.
Edward: Julian and William are the best of friends. They never fight over toys and are always running to hug each other.
Despite the age difference we are currently potty training both boys. William just wants to do everything that Julian is doing.
We get so much help from my parents so I’m always glad when the take the chance to go out for the evening on their own. Mum always complains that all Dad wants to eat is cake when they go out but I think she inwardly smiles at it.
They always talk about how the music was good or bad for dancing. Lately they seem to be enjoying the music. I’m sure they also play a bit of pool, it’s their favourite pastime and has been since their university days.
We took the opportunity to spend a night away from the boys. It’s the first time since we became parents. There is a new small hotel in Bluewater Village that we decided to try out.
The first thing Claire did was have a long bubble bath with no worry about being disturbed by one or both of the boys.
We went down for pre dinner drinks and then dinner.
After dinner I spend some time playing the piano in the lobby. There was a young boy staying there that seemed to really enjoy it. I think Claire did to.
The morning before we left Claire had a massage. It was a really nice to get away and we will defiantly come back to this hotel.
The break was defiantly what we needed, we didn’t seem to mind the next morning when the boys came to our room way too early to play.
