It seems like such a long time ago since the new normal began.
Like so many parents Sean and I have focused on maintaining as much normality for the kids.
Managing their mental health, education and of course their physical health within lockdown is paramount.
To our relief we have had some uniquely happy and memorable moments in these historic and challenging times.
On Easter Sunday, I cooked a lamb roast and we went on our usual family walk and the kids kept busy with lots of Easter craft.
Big sister is spending way much more family time with the little ones.
We started off well with the obligatory Joe Wicks morning workouts. However, the kids did become a little uninspired after the Easter break. Now we see if they are happy to take part rather than getting to the point of literally screaming at them “YOU WILL DO JOE WICKS NOW!”
What ever big brother does little sister wants to do too!
A little messy play to occupy Coco-Ivy whilst Cuba grabs some peace to get on with some maths.
If we ever see another worksheet again it will definitely be too soon! Cuba absolutely enjoys working on the laptop way more.
More outdoors adventures.
A little team work goes a long way.
Embracing a little mindfulness.
When you are struggling for ideas bake bread.
Cuba’s 8th birthday.
We promised him a big party for his birthday pre lockdown.
We had a little chat and he told me he didn’t care because he’s happy to celebrate with his family.
We were super busy having two picnics and lots of music and dancing at home.
No balloons this year and on reflection a good thing for the environment.
Biscoff toasted sandwich anyone?
It went down well anyway.
