I have stumbled through week one of the summer holidays; we have been to the
circus, a fair, had friends over and had the paddling pool out as much as
possible. The boys both had early
morning swimming lessons for the first week those finished on Friday, it was a
good start to the day as it got us up and out earlier and it was lovely seeing
them making progress. Gym club
continues for youngest one day a week so it’s nice to still have something
organised he can go to regularly and see his friends.
overall yes the summer holidays are stressful and mainly very expensive. My boys badger for this, that and
everything! A trip outside the house is
an onslaught of requests for “things” or “snacks”. So it was fabulous to keep them home one day to get through a
wonderful package from stressfreeprint.
They must have heard me rocking in a corner and thought I needed back up! Fortunately the contents of the delivery did
aid me in creating a #StressFreeHoliday.
I have lots of ideas from the book to get crafting, the boys are looking forward to their ice lollies setting and we have planted the
seeds. They can also give it a go at playing action photographers with the disposable camera.
know full well we have to hang on and treasure every moment with our children
as they grow up so quickly! But at the
same time I hold my hand up and admit it can be hard, my two like fighting so
structured activities that focus their minds help considerably. I also know that if our veggies actually grow
the boys will be immensely proud because they did that!
My dad even came to help the other day; he
was my knight in shining armour trying to distract the boys from their
one-upmanship competitions and petty squabbles. I love my boys but gosh it can be tough being at home all the
time. So I think stressfreeprint are my
new best friends for giving me the entertainment they needed to stop wrestling
for an afternoon!

hopefully get some peace in the process then please kindly fill out the
