I am feeling the need to cherish every moment with my boys, taking them on outdoor adventures, listening to their endless questions (and trying to find answers for a change!) and really treasuring the precious time we have together. I am so excited Easter is nearly here, so we have more quality time as a family. I am really missing them when they are both at full time school. My days seem so empty, in comparison to the noise and hustle and bustle when they were both at home with me…
It’s a long day to fill till 3pm and the novelty of cleaning and washing wears thin quite quickly! In the days of the crazy chaos of two boys under two I would never have thought I would have said that. But now there is a huge gap where they are off out in the big world.
I want to do more exploring with them, finding bugs, looking for hidden treasures, trying the geocaching I hear my friends do with their children. Yes I have done a fair bit with my boys over the years; they have seen endless attractions of course. I think we just need more time outside, hopefully with the weather improving it will become more of a possibility, but even when its dreadful and raining fresh air is always wonderful! Well it is if you have dressed appropriately, so I will make sure I get some new wellies for eldest.
The range at Muddy Puddles is great, I need the Puddleflex wellies as my two splash and splash hard, right into their boots! So with the laces tied firmly no more water will be soaking their little feet and making them cold and miserable when they should be enjoying the adventure! Hopefully if we swapped to those wellies they might keep all the sand out too!
I think we might try another scavenger hunt and perhaps an outdoor Easter Egg trail, we usually do them indoors but a bit more exercise might be a good idea before they get their hands on all the chocolate.
