It’s the middle of August and the weather hasn’t been that favorable. We in the Two Tiny Hands household have not let the windy drizzly weather get in our way though. We’ve been out on plenty of outings and crawled around in wet grass, walked up hills and along beaches. Nothing will stop us.
As promised I have a half way round-up of #ABrandNewDay in August and I’m sharing with you a few of my favourite blogs. I really appreciated the kind words from you about the need to take a break away from my link up over the Summer, Thank you.
I’m bored with playing!
The things I share on my blog are often very positive and fun, I rarely share with you the moments when I am feeling a bit down. One of the things that I hide behind is the fun play but in reality is sometimes the lack of play with my son. It gets boring from time to time and sometimes I crave a bit of adult company in the day time not just at bed time. Kate Orson has shared with us tips on how to have fun playing with our kids. Its only natural to get bored over repetitive games and tasks, that’s okay! I’ve practiced some intense shorter play with the Robot recently and both of us have been a lot happier.
Joie de Vivre
What better way to follow in is my next post from Reflections From Me – Joie de Vivre. Grab a little happiness and live life to the full. I particularly liked the idea of living life through the eyes of my child. Everything is new and exciting as a child and when becoming an adult that innocence is lost.
Grab a book or two or three
Blogging and parenting have really scuppered my ability to read books, heck, I read loads online but not a physical book, or even my kindle.. When I read Mindful mummy’s Mission – Books by my bedside I had to hang my head in shame. I really haven’t read a book in over a year. I used to read all the time, always had a book in hand. I even got a book out the library and promptly returned it, I need to change this habit!
Ice Cream, get your Ice Cream
The weather may not be that warm and cuddly but it is the Summer so that means Ice Cream. When having an ice cream I could get away with letting the Robot have a lick while I eat the rest of it. It’s got that stage now that he wants that little bit more for himself. Cue my disappointment, but then delight when I read Sneaky Spinach Ice lollys from Squished Blueberries. The perfect answer for me is to make my own Ices for the Robot to eat. Saves money and will probably be that little bit healthier than shop bought stuff.
I’m giving a HUGE Shout out to Mindful Mummy, who has gone out of her way to comment on double the amount of posts that she needed too. THANK YOU! There is still time to come back and see if you can knock her off the top spot to be the highest commenter…
