Weekend Box Club Review - Part 2

Weekend Box Club Review - Rocking Spring Bird
We took our second dip into our Weekend Box this week. 

This time we let Georgie have a go too. He is technically too young - the boxes are aimed at 3 to 8 year old's - but he really wanted to get involved so we split the last two activities up between us.

Rocking Spring Bird

I worked with little Georgie on the Rocking Bird.

He loved getting messy mixing our own paint, painting the card circle, and gluing the decorations on. He did need a lot of help (he's 23 months) but really enjoyed himself and has played with the bird we made since. I was really nice that there was something in the kit which he was able to join in with while his big brothers did something a little more challenging.

Weekend Box Club Review - Rocking Spring Bird (Georgie Painting)Sound Explorers

Meantime the Hubby got involved and worked on the Sound Explorers card with Jack and Tom. Tom is coming up to 4yrs and Jack turned 6 this weekend so they are the perfect age for these.

They worked together nicely and had a great time making all the animal noises, Jack got to work on his writing by working out how the noises should be written down.

They had great fun trying to recreate the Robot Voice and Jack absolutely LOVED his new noise maker!



We have loved these activities! 

They are a brilliant way to occupy and entertain your kids on a wet weekend, or as an alternative to hectic days out. I can see us doing a lot more of these, especially over the Summer Holiday this year while we're waiting for the new baby to make an appearance!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
