It’s been a bit of a mixed week this week! The twiglets are still doing great at school. However, we’ve had quite a few emotional outbursts to cope with at home, some of them pretty extreme!
This past week has been mostly about the twiglets adjusting back into school life and settling into Year 1. We’ve taken it pretty easy the rest of the time really!
I didn’t expect our summer holiday to be busy at all this year! In fact, what with lockdown and everything being so uncertain, I assumed they wouldn’t be. But with restrictions easing, and me starting to feel a bit less anxious about getting out and about, it feels like we’ve actually been super busy!
The first week of the summer holidays is already done and dusted! I have a feeling it might actually fly by quite quickly. It’s been a nice balanced week – not too busy but we’ve done some lovely things as well. One of the big things has been that I’ve started relaxing a little about social distancing for the twigs with other kids.
When I think back to the rosy first few days and weeks of lockdown, I remember the great intentions I had. I was going to smash home learning with the twiglets, I was going to get fit and healthy, I was going to relish all the lovely family time together… Fast forward to now and it’s fair to say things *may* have slipped just a little. So I thought I’d take a little tongue-in-cheek look at all the ways in which my parenting standards have lowered over lockdown. Enjoy!
