the end is here; it has been harder than running a marathon (and given my
Garfield tendencies that says a lot!).
I shall need to celebrate now with a large glass of wine or copious
amounts of tea and cake.
have missed lazy mornings filled with cartoons whilst I nurse a cup of tea and
try and prise my eyes open at silly o’clock.
When we had monsoon like rain I did question why I thought this
challenge was a good idea…
house has definitely felt the strain with all the materials for getting
creative. Having done some painting, playdoh and playmais, artistic mess
my boys seem to have benefited from spending more quality time playing
together. Youngest seems to have
developed a natural flair at small Lego building. Eldest has done me proud waiting so patiently to play his new
Skylanders character, that has been tempting him from the Christmas in July goody bag.
have made Cookies
Hunted for four-leaf clovers
Reviewed fun new toys luckily without batteries (Octopals, Shoulder Buddies and Fire Power)
surprisingly lot of mileage just with a cardboard box!
For eldest it has not been too bad as for
the most of it he is in school, and then he also has karate twice a week. He felt it most when he had another playdate
on Friday and was desperate to show his friend his wii games in action, so
instead he got them all and explained what you did in each one, which showed
huge self control.
has had a few tantrums this week; he has missed being tucked in a blanket
watching some television. I have read
more books to compensate, which appeased him somewhat. He also has a shorter attention span so
moves onto different activities quickly, just as you barely set him up one; he
is ready to start the next.
think with reflection the boys have coped much better than me. But I do not have their energy levels. The television/wii used in moderation lets
me catch up with chores and the general chaos of life with two young boys.
I do this again…?
me in a few months!
celebrate surviving the week I have been offered an amazing toy bundle (worth
£101) as a prize on my blog
