The Summer Holidays!

Wednesday, August 08, 2018

How is everyone doing with the summer holidays so far? We've been surprisingly good!! I can't believe that I've made it to week three with almost no major tantrums and I've barely had a glass of wine! Haha! I think I've been so blooming happy to have both my kids back at home that I just can't seem to get too cross with them. I didn't realise how much they are away from me with school and nursery, and of course Tommy will be starting full time school in September, which is kind of making my heart break a little!

Also, I'm pretty determined to make this summer holiday something the kids look back on and remember really fondly. I don't know about you, but I often find that holidays and weekends fall a little flat. Either Dave and I are too tired to make much effort, or we don't bother to get out or I tend to snap and find fault in everything. But my kids are 6 and 4 and these are the years they will remember and will make such an important impact on them for the future. So I've been so focussed on spending time with them, and being patient and letting them enjoy their holiday!

So far we've done paddling pool play, arts and crafts, piano lessons, baking and had a couple of trips out. Hope it's going well for you too! xx
