Working mamma and family time.x

Hello readers,

Working full time can be hard especially when it comes to making time for your children aswell as house chores. Running a family home can be difficult when parents work full time and end up feeling guilty for not giving their 100% attention to their children after work. Family time is always one that lifts spirits and makes you happy benifiting your mental health. Its ok to leave chores for the next day , children would much rather have your attention then a tidy living room , its ok to leave dishes till the next day , its ok to leave the washing in the basket and the ironing till another day...its ok to leave all chores for a day or so. Take some time aside from cleaning and enjoy the free time with your children. 

Take some time aside and share a story with your child. Talk about the book with them and ask them questions. You are still spending time with your child even at bedtime/ story time. Children love it when parents sit with them. Have a weekend and let your child lead the activities. Be realisitc when asking your child to plan your day together. Your child will love being in charge and you will get to enjoy the day together whilst seeing your children happy. Have a movie night let your child have an extended bed time and cuddle on the sofa with a film and favourite treats. The simpliest of things is what makes children happy. Have a games day/night. Get out the board games and have some fun with your family. Board games are a great laugh in family house holds ....even though it may not seem that way when your little ones dont like loosing and the board game ends up in the air🤷‍♀️😀. Family time is precious💕.

Enjoy the time spent together 💕

Food for thought.x

Hello readers 
This is not something I would usually do on my blog but I saw this and needed to share as too many of us in the world put ourselves down and regret things we should not. I really want to share this image with you all.
 We should not regret things we have or have not done, things we should have done and things we shouldn't have done. There is  no point giving ourselves a hard time for these things. We are strong. We are independent. We are good people. Never regret a moment of your lives. Live for today and never look back with regret. Focus on our futures and what we can do.

How to make space goggles with your child.x

Hello readers and Happy Sunday !
I hope this blog finds you well. All children love messy play and love to get creative expressing their own ideas through creativity. You can give your child any resources you can get hold of and they will turn it into something exciting and fun to them. Children will be using their imagination, using their own initiative to create objects for a purpose to them. When doing these sort of activities your child will be developing fine motor skills , developing their imagination (which is a sector to the EYFS) and having lots of fun building on their emotionl skills and resilience. All of these are skills which children will thrive through life with.
Here’s what you need to make ‘space goggles’
. 2 empty toilet roll holders  . Paints . Stick on eyes . Glue . Feathers . Pom-poms  . Pipe cleaners . Any craft resources you have
How do we make them?

Sunday baking with the kids.x

Hello readers ,
Happy Sunday!

Who doesn’t love to bake? Getting the kids to join in to help will limit the time kids spend on screen time and spend some family time instead. Children will love to help and join you in the kitchen you can encourage them to do this as much as you can. Children will be occupied and away from screens when cooking with an adult and cooking reduces stress levels . Cooking activities can improve fine motor skills as kids will carefully hold cooking equiment in their hands using grasps for control. Children can develop their muscles by mixing with spoons and when using icing , squeezing the icing through the icing bags. When baking children are seeing numbers for the ingredients and how much they weigh, for older children who are able to recognise numbers you can ask how many grams / ounces or whatever measurements you wish to use are needed for the receipt. You can encourage your child to explore textures and you can describe the difference between the dry and …
