Is it really the middle of April already? Somehow, I actually missed the 15th… which never happens. My days this month are blurring together and the calendar seems to be filling up so fast each month leading up to summer. I should be prepared for this, as it happens every year. For some reason we put off everything between September and January and then February hits and it seems we have catch ups every week, on top of our normal busy schedule. It’s always a rush to see everyone we haven’t seen in a while before we leave for the entire summer. Work for both Mr P and I have been really busy too where some weeks we are passing each other and handing off the kids. The kids are no different, their schedules are worse than ours in terms of social events, to do’s, and sports. I need a calendar as big as my dining room table to keep us all on track. Do you ever feel like you are playing secretary to the family?
I have been stocking up on the kid’s spring/summer clothes as they have grown out of everything they own, unfortunately, at the exact same time. While it’s still not quite warm I refuse to buy more warm clothes and them be in them for a minute. So we have jumped in to warmer weather attire whether the weather agrees with us or not. The kids have both had huge growth spurts this month. We even had a huge milestone with B losing his very first tooth. AWWW! *tears He looks so much older with a tooth missing. I always had in my head it would be closer to seven years old not almost five years old but the dentist assured us its normal and that babies that get early teeth lose teeth early. Another one is already wobbly next to the one he lost and he is absolutely over the moon. “This means I am a big kid right, Mommy?” he said excitedly when I put his tooth under his pillow ready for the Tooth Fairy last night.
TOGETHER THEY ARE LOVING:
Biking riding to the park (as always).
Wearing shorts and refusing to wear coats.
Traveling on the Ferry boat and watching Mommy go green to Ireland.
Spending Easter with their cousins.
Laughing at their new inside language and saying poo (what is with that?).
Going to the movies together to see Alvin and the Chipmunks.
We have had a busy month including taking the Ferry over to Ireland for Easter which was lovely. The kids love travelling together and definitely both have sea legs too, unlike their mother. I am loving watching them come together after school and nursery and telling each other all about their day. I can barely get a few words out if I question them about their day but they are more than happy to share even if they have pooed or not with each other. That’s fine with me. I just listen in on their car conversations. I hope they always tell each other everything. There is nothing wrong with having that one person that knows you the most in your life to lean on and go to as you grow up. That’s the beauty of siblings.

ah wow, tooth gone! My son is teething at the moment, cannot believe I have this to look forward to…my time goes quickly! x
OH yes I know what you mean it really does go quickly. I can’t believe one is almost five, in school and losing teeth and soon the littlest will be three years old. How did that happen?
These photos are gorgeous! They definitely have take a stretch especially MM! She is catching up to her brother.
I know it won’t be long if she continues at this rate they really will be mistaken of twins. lol Thanks lovely.

Gorgeous photos. My big one is six and-a-half and has not yet lost any teeth (he was a very late teether). He is desperate for a visit from the tooth fairy! #ShareWithMe
Mummy Fever says
Oh so cute 🙂 The first tooth is a huge deal! I was 7 but my eldest was 5 1/2 . My youngest had teeth at 3 months so I expect he will loose the first one early too xx #sharewithme

Awww the first tooth! What a milestone! They are so gorgeous, I love seeing your photos of them both. B looks like such a fab big brother! #sharewithme
Mrs Tubbs says
So lovely. We’ve been doing the same with summer clothes as well. The Tubblet has had a growth spurt and needs new everything! Beautiful photos as always and I hope you’re enjoying the sunny weather 🙂
Love mirror photo. Such great photography you developed. x
Natasha Mairs says
really gorgeous photos!! My little girl has her first wobbly tooth, but it just refuses to fall out
Catie: An Imperfect Mum says
Hurray for the first tooth and your visit to Ireland looked lovely. That last photo in the mirror is special!
Beatiful photos as usual! Aww so exciting about the first tooth!! They grow up way too quickly… And yes what is it with the obsession with the word “poo”??? We’ve got a lot of that at the moment and I fear it will only get worse… #sharewithme
The photos are lovely as always. Your children are so adorable. I know what you mean about having to purchase new clothes! Both mine have grown out of their stuff at the same time and I refuse to buy winter stuff. The 1st missing tooth is such a big deal! They grow up so fast don’t they! xx #sharewithme
As always, what beautiful photos of MM and B! I can’t believe how much MM is growing. She’s stretching up very well. I can imagine that getting them warm clothes can be a daunting task, especially if they grow out of it so quickly. Thanks for sharing these moments with us and for hosting another round of #sharewithme!
I loved your photos from Ireland at Easter it looked like a lovely break from you’re all from a busy schedule. I know all about playing Secretary to your kids it could easily become a full time job! #Sharewithme
Cheryl @ ReimerandRuby says
Lovely photo… Isn’t it so lovely staring at them sweetly cuddling each other?! Siblings bonding is just amazing. My little boy is almost 6 but no loose tooth yet although he is always looking forward to one, lol. #sharewithme
Esther @ Inside Out & About says
Ah! He lost his first tooth! That is such a milestone. My kids are obsessed with talking about poo – they just say it and laugh hysterically for ages. These pictures couldn’t show the beauty of having a sibling any better. It’s magical xx
Beautiful photos and children! That’s SO sweet that they tell each other all about their day! How lovely.
My 18-month-old is already obsessed with the word ‘poo’! Oh dear! x
I know it’s really a thing this poo talk! Thanks lovely. They tell each other more than they tell me so I am constantly ease dropping on them.
Elaine @ Entertaining Elliot says
What a pair of cuties! I don’t know what it is about the subject of poo but my 3 year old finds it hilarious too, just today we used the public loos in Costa and he came out and announced to everyone that he’d had “a really enormous poo!”….just what everyone wanted to hear I’m sure 😉 #sharewithme
Erin @ Nourishing My Scholar says
They are growing so big! Oh my goodness, what is it with kids and “poo?” Mine are the same way! #SharewithMe
Aww. This is lovely. #SharewithMe
Kate / Pouting In Heels says
What beautiful children you have! Gorgeous photos of them too. And I hear ya when it comes to outgrowing clothes, Elsie practically needs a whole new wardrobe! x
Mummy here and there says
Awwww so cute photos, they look like they are having checky fun. Wow, first tooth what fun X #SWM
Carol Cameleon says
Beautiful pictures as always Jenny! It really is a milestone when they lose their first tooth isn’t it? Our little girl was about same age and I remember wondering if it was ‘normal’ so young… she lost more in quick succession after that. Lovely post again 🙂 Thanks for hosting #sharewithme
