The Siblings Project – September 2020

September has been a new start for us all and whilst change is a good thing, it isn’t always easy to adapt to. J is now at senior school, whereas E is now a junior- sadly they means that they are no longer at the same school and though I’d expected for them to miss each other, I think that a few hours space each day is doing them both the world of good. I’ve noticed that there aren’t so many sibling spats or squabbles these days and that they seem to get along even better than ever before! I… View Post

The Siblings Project – August 2020

I can barely believe that we are in August already – time feels to be slipping through my fingers and though we’ve had months at home, it doesn’t really feel all that long. Whilst I have some lovely pictures of the kids, I don’t seem to have many of them together really, thus I’ve pinched a picture from my hubby which was taken earlier today to share for this month’s siblings project post. I feel a bit bad as many of the pictures of the kids which my husband tends to take are often without my presence as I’ve been… View Post

The Siblings Project – July 2020

This week marked the end of the infants for our little lady and the end of the juniors for our ‘not-so-little’ man. It’s all change apparently, which seems a little odd as not a lot has changed at all given that we are still in the midst of a lockdown. It’s now the summer and holidays – a solid six weeks of freedom or maybe not… Unlike most years when we’ve had holidays booked and the suitcases at the ready, we daren’t even leave the house as of yet thanks to the pandemic. So it’s just us, the dog and… View Post

The Siblings Project – June 2020

To say that we’ve been stuck in lockdown for twelve weeks or more and the kids have a four-year age gap, the kids have flabbergasted me with how well they have coped and have got along together. J & E sure are pool pals and I’m so proud of their patience, understanding, and progress throughout what has been an incredibly testing time. View Post

The Siblings Project – May 2020

I’m so glad that my children actually get along, I couldn’t for one minute imagine having had to spend the past eight or nine weeks locked in a house with endless sibling squabbles… cough It’s been far from easy but let me assure you, the kids have been the least of my worries! J & E have both been as good as gold these past few months, which is admirable considering the stress that they must be under from the endless covid 19 news coverage (even though we shield them as much as possible from this) and the fact they… View Post
