The last week has really seen us getting back into our typical routine. We’ve had school runs, Dave’s shifts, blog work and all the other stuff that comes with being both a parent and a blogger. It’s been a busy week but one that I am glad is over – it has been tough on all of us.
Getting up in the morning is hard. Getting the children up in the morning is hard. But we just plough on and somehow everyone gets to school, I breathe a sigh of relief and watch the time pass so quickly before it’s time to pick them up again.
Mornings are hard for all of us but we are trying to do little things each morning that make us all happy, trying to start the day off the right way. LP loves scooting to school – unless she’s that tired that it’s just too much for her. So we’ve been walking to school as much as possible, with her scooting in front, singing to herself and telling me that she’s gone up a level every time she passes a lamp post – no idea what that’s about.
Little Man is happy as long as he can take a toy everywhere with him – usually a train from his Thomas collection. He’ll usually get ready easily, happily, eat breakfast nicely and get in the pushchair without any trouble. He is definitely the best ‘morning person’ out of all of us.
But then, as much as I love dropping them off, and love that time to do jobs, potter around town running errands or sit myself in a coffee shop to work, I love picking them up again. They are always happy to see me – even if they are tired – and I love walking home from school, talking about their day and just being with them. It’s always nice when we’re together again, no matter how tough the morning had been.
Thanks to everyone who linked up last week, I really enjoyed reading your posts and will pop over and read them all again this week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!
