I am so relieved this weekend is finally here. We ended school earlier this week which was needed and nice. B is extremely tired and emotional lately so I think he needs the break more than anyone. It’s Easter this Sunday which means we are hopping on the ferry boat to Ireland to see family again. I can’t wait. I love going over there to the country and sitting in the fields listening to nothing but the birds chirping in the morning with my coffee and family around me. I am in need of some down time myself and a slower pace of life.
THIS WEEK I AM LOVING…
If you have been on my social media channels this week, you might have caught a glimpse at me complaining about my parenting skills or feeling the lack thereof. Or asking for advice from everyone… We have been dealing with a little bit of an emotional school boy and with parents evenings for both of mine I was left feeling the pressure to get them to a certain standard. I was recommended this book below so I am half way through it and already applying a few new parenting tactics which have helped. I am not afraid to admit I still don’t know what I am doing and learning as I go along.
Yes, have you heard…I am going to say it, it’s AWARD SEASON for bloggers. Whilst it’s very exciting, it’s also an awkward time, I think. It’s tough asking for people vote and wanting all your own favorite bloggers to be nominated as well. I love supporting as many blogs as I possibly can. The MADS and the BiBs have opened up for VOTING at the same time this year. I would love to be considered for LIFESTYLE for the MADS & FAMILY for the BiBs. You can vote for all favorites by clicking the badges at the bottom of this post. 🙂 Good luck to everyone.
Catch up with our new vlog…yup, I have been a good girl and still on my vlogging challenge of one video per week. This week, I am sharing my Kids’ Spring/Summer Shopping Haul. Would love a thumbs up if you have time to watch it and like what I am sharing.
I have been in sweats and being lazy lately in the wardrobe department. It seems there is always a theme in my wardrobe when I share it. It’s all about the straight hair this week.
It’s Easter break for B so we made the most of our Thursday this week and did some crafts from Cath Kidston. They have a great competition on right now with #GnorrisTheGnome you can check it out here. We had so much fun painting our little gnomes together. I think it’s so important to have one on one time with each child. I can really see it puts B in a better mood when we have time together and I focus 100% on him. Craft projects are great for that. He is so proud of what we created together too.
It’s not secret I love redecorating my house, even more so when it comes to the kid’s spaces. The closer we get to MM starting school and the further B gets into learning, I have been thinking about creating a bigger desk space that will fit both of them. As much as I hate to say it, it won’t be long before they both will be in school and have homework to do together. I finally have my own corner of the front room taken and I think it would be great to make the other side of the room their corner. I am dreaming of a double school desk in grey and yellow…you all know how much I love that combo but don’t worry I have plenty of ideas for the vibrant colors to join them.
These are just a few on my wish list that I think would go great in our colorful front room. Although it might be hard to stay on my own side of the room and work at my desk with these lovely treats. Where do your kids do their homework? Do you have a place set up for them? Do they do it together or separately? I would love to know.
