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!
Helloooo! It’s been a bit of a mad old week really. We’ve basically been enjoying the sunshine as much as possible, despite all the scary shiz going on around us!
So I’ve shared a few pretty positive posts about lockdown recently. About how on the whole we’ve been quite enjoying it and how I believe that there will be good things to come from it. All of that still stands. But if you’ve followed me for a while, especially over on Instagram, you will know that I’m also partial to a rant. Even a whinge sometimes if you’re lucky. In fact, I actually think it’s healthy to have a good old moan every now and then. I always panic after posting anything moany as I’m so aware that there are people far worse off. But I still think everyone’s feelings are valid no matter what. Therefore, I am about to moan! Here are 7 annoying things about parenting during lockdown…
Week 5820193483 of lockdown and we are still mostly enjoying ourselves. We have been blessed with glorious weather again over the bank holiday weekend, which really does make such a huge difference. As I mentioned before, everything feels much harder when it’s grey and miserable outside! However, despite this, it is all starting to feel a bit Groundhog Day now, and the constant whinging from the twiglets is starting to get to me a bit!
