School Holidays
I adore school holidays! Oh throw eggs at me if you will, but I do! I can’t believe how quickly Kieran is growing. He has finished his first year at school and will soon start his second. He is shooting up, not just in size but he is like a sponge and soaks up experiences and information so quickly and easily…. he is maturing! By the time term ends I am more than ready to have my boy at home, and it’s great to see Kieran and Taylor 8m playing together all day.
By the time Kieran comes home from school, gets dressed and does any homework and plays for half an hour, it’s teatime. Then before we know it, time for reading and bed. Weekends are great for quality time but the long summer holidays for me are magical.

Why?

We can stay in our PJ (sorry postie!) until lunchtime, or all day is we want!
We can take off at a moment’s notice with just the baby’s bag and a picnic!
We can (and do!), get to the park for 9am when it opens and run around like noisy children (yes me included!) and not have to share any of the equipment!

We can have water-fights in the garden (sorry next door’s cat!) while Taylor shrieks with laughter from the travel cot I bring outside!

We can go away as a family, enjoying trips to Thomasland, the beach, local outings or just walks out – me and all my fellas!
We can walk to Daddy’s work when it’s sunny and surprise him! We can all sit on the grass and eat lunch before myself and the boys continue on to the nearby train station to do a bit of trainspotting.
We can built whole cities made of lego and use our mini-men to act out stories (I’m always the bad guy!).
We can get wellies on and jump in puddles.
Or (one of my favourites)…
Instead of jumping out of bed for showers, breakfast and out to school / work, we can all get into bed together to tickle, laugh, tell stories and sing until our tummy grumbles tell us it’s really time to get up!

Why do I think the school holidays rock, because we get 7 weeks of uninterrupted family time. You just can’t beat that!!
