How are we already at the point of our twins starting school?! In some ways, it feels like only yesterday that we were sat on the sofa in our living room, having just returned from hospital, with two tiny, helpless babies in car seats, looking at each other like ‘so wtf do we do now?!’ Overwhelmed, emotional and bloody knackered…
This may be a bit of a ramble so bear with… I’ve had something on my mind recently with Instagram. And it’s to do with being an influencer.
As the twiglets are getting older and their understanding of the world is widening every day, I’m finding myself struggling with knowing how much to tell them about things. Fundamentally, I believe that honesty is the best policy with children. However, I find myself torn between wanting to be honest with them but also wanting to preserve their innocence while I still can. So how honest should parents be with children?
I don’t really consider myself to be very ‘Insta.’ I mean, I post on there (a lot – probably too much 😂) and I love it (again, probably too much 🙈). But I don’t always feel like I necessarily ‘fit in’ as such. I’m not saying this as some kind of pity party for one or anything – it’s just the way I see it. And actually I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really mind 😊 So here are 5 reasons why I’m not very Instagram:
I’m currently sat in Costa with a coconut latte and a toastie, enjoying a rare couple of hours of peace and quiet. It’s half term and the twiglets are at a Playball camp for the morning. I’m trying to relax and appreciate the time to myself but I can’t help but think about the fraught, stressful few hours we had before we left the house earlier. Destructive behaviour in toddlers can be so difficult to deal with!!
