Ordinary Moments

The Ordinary Moments is a weekly feature where I share all the ordinary parts of our lives. It has documented the children’s milestones, days out, holidays, funny things they’ve said and so much more in between. All the posts in the series can be found here.


Drawing {The Ordinary Moments}

LP has a new love of drawing. I recently bought her a new art caddy and filled it with tubs of all her pencil and crayons. She even had some new ones thrown in for good measure! LP has since been drawing and colouring every day and she loves it! She uses as many colours as she can, tries to keep on the paper and goes crazy with lines, circles…

Little Mr Inquisitive {The Ordinary Moments}

Little Man is the focus of so many Ordinary Moments in our lives. He is a constant through the day and still a regular feature through the night too -yawn- But there are some ordinary moments that stand out more than others. Little Man recently learnt to pull himself up onto his knees and practices this new skill wherever and whenever he can. Most of the time he pulls himself…


Sweeping {The Ordinary Moments}

I’ve spoke a lot about how LP loves copying us in the things we do over the course of the average day – Cooking and washing up are things she really enjoys to do – Any kind of role playing game really where she has a chance to copy Mummy and Daddy. We bought LP a toy broom, mop and dustpan & brush for her Birthday and she has loved…


LP’s ‘Dribble Dog’ {The Ordinary Moments}

I have mentioned briefly on Twitter and Instagram LP’s smallest friend, her Dribble Dog. LP received Dribble Dog for her first Christmas from her Uncle Trevor. She loved him immediately and would suck his ears until they’d drip – We started calling him Dribble Dog as he was always soggy and the name stuck. LP would always go back to Dribble Dog every few months, giving him cuddles and playing…


Jigsaws {The Ordinary Moments}

LP has always loved jigsaws. We have so many wooden peg jigsaws where she has to fit the right character in the right position but most of those puzzles she can now do without any thought, she is swiftly outgrowing all of them. At Christmas LP’s Great Aunt and Uncle bought her a big farm floor puzzle and ever since LP has been obsessed with the box it came in…


Bathtime {The Ordinary Moments}

I’m still not confident enough to bath both children by myself so we wait until Hubby’s home to bath them together or LP will have her bath after dinner and we’ll bath Little Man in the afternoon when it fits in around other jobs that need doing, naps and meal times. Little Man loved the bath when he was smaller but since being able to sit up he has spent…


Wallace and Gromit {The Ordinary Moments}

As time goes on LP’s personality is developing and her preference for different toys, clothes and TV shows is developing too. LP has, and will always have, a love for Curious George. She adores that cheeky little monkey! But slowly and surely a new love is creeping into her life, a love that I can relate to and that I’m secretly pleased about. LP has discovered Wallace and Gromit. Growing…
