To make our Saturday a little easier Paul and I chose to split our parenting duties into ‘gender duos’, I took E along to her class friends birthday party whilst Paul took J to the beach with the basset for some ‘boys time’.
E has yet to make the drive into town without losing her lunch; the fifty minute drive along the windy roads is enough to send anyones stomach skew-whiff never mind having to put up with the plethora of potholes dotted here, there and everywhere along the way. Rather than stress about the inevitable sickness, we opted to move E’s car seat into the passenger seat where she was then able to gain a better view of the road whilst being sat alongside myself to converse in girl talk in the hope that she might be able to withhold her stomach contents.
Driving Miss Daisy
Our strategy was successful as E managed to make the journey without blowing chunks across the car or herself. Having arrived hurl free and happy we made our way to the soft play centre where E and her friends had a whale of a time running around for an hour or so before filling their faces with burgers, chips and ice cream.
Meanwhile the boys were also busy burning their energy off on the beach by strolling along the shore ,scaling sand dunes and making the most of the spring sunshine.
The Boy, His Basset And The Beach
Having arrived home following our ‘girls day out’ we then caught up with the boys and cuddled on the couch to watch a family film before sharing tea around the table. It was a super Saturday all in all, the kids certainly seemed to enjoy themselves which was apparent as they slept like logs that night.
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
