All in Keep them occupied
When toddlers get too much to handle and the living room feels like it is shrinking, it is tough to think of ways to keep them entertained, especially when it hasn't stopped raining! Thankfully I remembered we have a lovely little green trail near our house. It's one of those places that you always enjoy more than you realise and end up saying classic lines like; "Why don't we do this more often" and "I always forget this exists". I drive past it every single day, usually several times and noticed recently that it is suddenly been overwhelmed with blackberries!
Two words that bring fear to parents all over the world…school holidays. Having to juggle work, childcare and trying to stop yourself going insane over the school holiday period can be a bloody hard slog. On a brighter note, it’s also a wonderful time to get to spend some family time together and enjoy some sunshine (hopefully!)
It has taken me so long to publish this that our holiday was now nearly 2 months ago but I am hoping it is of some help to those of you who still have lovely holidays to look forward to!
I have to be honest and say when time drew closer to us going on holiday I began getting nervous and thought it may be a really bad idea! What if it was just really hard work?!
