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!
If you have two or more children, they will most likely have spent more uninterrupted time with their siblings than ever before over the past few months in lockdown. I’ve found it really special to watch how the bond between the twiglets has grown and strengthened during this time.
Since the lockdown rules were relaxed slightly, we haven’t really changed what we’ve been doing all that much. Still staying at home the vast majority of the time and just heading out for the odd local walk. But a couple of times we have tried going a little further afield and travelling by car to go for a walk. And to be honest, both times I’ve just found it really stressful and anxiety-inducing. I wrote a post before about how I’m feeling anxious about lockdown ending. And as lockdown starts to ease, I feel like the thing I’m struggling with the most is going out.
Week 50 squillion of lockdown and it’s been, like most of the others, full of ups and downs. So for our Living Arrows post this week, here are some of our ups and downs of lockdown life 🙂
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!
