“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
So last week was our second week of home learning. (I’m loathe to call it homeschooling – somehow I don’t feel it’s quite the same thing!) It’s still going really well. The twiglets’ behaviour is so much easier to manage when we have a bit of structure to our days. As a parent, I’ve never really been one for strict routines but right now it definitely feels right for us! H is so much more unsettled and difficult at the weekends when he has more freedom. I think I might have to keep it going through the Easter holidays at this rate!
The other day I did a huge ramble on my Instagram Stories about how C got in a total rage after school. Eventually it culminated with her running into the road without looking. It was pretty scary to think about what could have happened and it has made me reevaluate a few things. So I just thought I’d write a quick post about what I’ve learned from this experience.
Now I’m not a nutritional expert by any means, but I thought I’d pull together a list of tips to encourage healthy eating in children. They’re written from my perspective as a mum of twins who has sometimes torn her hair out trying to get her kids to eat healthily!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, or you follow me on Instagram, you might know that I’m pretty shocking at doing craft or messy play or any of that shiz at home with the twigs. Unfortunately the twigs didn’t get the memo and bloody love all that stuff. And occasionally I do like to be slightly less crap and will force myself to whack out the old craft supplies on a rainy day. When I do though, I need simple ideas. And you all know I love rainbows, so I thought I’d pull together a selection of easy rainbow craft activities for toddlers. You know, just in case any other mamas out there are a bit lacking in the old creativity department too! So here you go 😀
