Looking back over my week it has been more full of special moments than ordinary moments. Jelly Baby started ballet lessons, Bean had her arm cast taken off. Baby Sprout turned 6 months old and he also rolled over for the first time! Added to that we have also moved him into his own room. So many special little moments, none of which I can say are ordinary!
What this week has been about though is getting into a new routine. Back to school, which is always a shock to the system after a break but this time with a twist. Baby Sprout is eating solid food now so we have an extra meal to make but with him eating solid foods and moving into his own room he seems to have settled into a much better routine – napping at regular times and for longer periods. I’ve had more time for the girls and spent a lovely couple of hours today helping them with their homework without having to entertain a baby at the same time.
So amongst the amazing special moments we have had this week, this week was also about getting back into the ordinary routine that we have missed lately. School runs, homework, ballet classes, brownies and swimming lessons. It has meant the start of new routines – making breakfast lunch and dinner for three little people, regular nap times and homework. I must say that it is nice to get back into a routine after the chaos of Christmas and it is lovely to have more time to spend individually with all three of my little people.
Here are some snippets of my not so ordinary week…
