The start of the summer holidays always seems to prompt a huge clear up, de clutter and tidy in our house. Is it just us, or does anyone else do this? It does seem a little ridiculous to tidy up before the six weeks of toy playing and chaos but it seems to help with the first few days of the holiday. Always takes a few days to settle down and get used to being with each other; I am so so thankful to be married to a teacher who acts as my co referee and share the role of fight master. All is well after those initial squabbles and we probably ease the stress by cleaning and sorting.
This afternoon I was tidying the food cupboards and found some very out of date baby jars, while I was reminiscing about baby days the "baby" found a huge jar of chocolate spread. Independent as ever she helped herself to a spoon and rapidly ate as much as she could, she knows a sibling will be along to share it if she isn't quick. My children are super fast at eating sweets (to avoid sharing) and particularly nice food on the table will go in a flash!
She saw me and made a quick exit into the garden.
Ever the fashionista she paused to choose her footwear before running away, this girl loves shoes so much - why not have a different one on each foot?
Flip flopping up the garden still with a chocolatey spoon and a dress on back to front!
Time is going by so fast and we are hoping to leave nappy days behind soon, this sunny weather has arrived just in time for her to start wearing big girl pants and using the potty. Two years and five months seems a good age and she is always telling me to change her nappy. Even though I have done it five times before I seem to have blissfully forgotten about the joys of potty training!
Any top potty training tips anyone?
Enjoy the sunshine this week...
