Every Monday for the rest of this year I will share with you two photo’s of my children that celebrate their childhood.

We decided to celebrate Valentines a little early with it falling on a Tuesday this year. I usually buy the kids a few little treats for fun but this year I couldn’t find anything I liked. I settled for some heart shaped chocolates and a pretty little cupcake each instead.

Daisy has another week in school before she finishes for half term. I’m hoping the weather stays dry so we can get a few trips to the park in and maybe a day out somewhere.

We have had another week of snuffly noses and tickling coughs meaning a good nights sleep has been scarce. Instead of fighting against it we have enjoyed lots of down time, watching lots of TV and snuggling. Thankfully by weekend we were all feeling a little more energetic and back to our normal selves.

Jake 

Jake doesn’t really ask to draw or paint unless he sees Daisy doing it. He much prefers to play with his robots and dinosaurs. He also loves to squish play-doh and build with his bricks. It’s so nice to watch him sit and concentrate on a task for a few minutes. I really must make more of an effort to encourage some crafty play with him.

Daisy

Daddy had to work on Sunday so Daisy, Jake and I took a walk to the local park. The park was a little damp but it didn’t stop the kids having a great time. They both went on the swings and Daisy reminded me that she didn’t need pushing anymore. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make you realise that their childhood is so fleeting.

Last week was so nice, the children were in pretty good moods despite having snotty noses. Jake has been like a different child with his behaviour and I really hope this means we are turning a corner. He will be 3 in May so hopefully we are starting to head away from the ‘terrible two’s’ now.

Daisy

I will never cease to be amazed at how fast children learn to read and write. It seems like yesterday that I was reading the books to Daisy and now she’s reading them to me. Apart from the odd tricky word she needs very little help.

Despite feeling under the weather and having a few restless nights of coughing she still couldn’t wait to get to school. It makes me so happy that she loves school and embraces all the experiences that it brings.

Jake

I know this photo is a little blurred but it’s my favourite from this week. I’m always nervous of taking Jake out on my own so when I was invited for coffee with friends I almost said no. As a little live wire he doesn’t like to sit still usually but he was good as gold. He made himself comfy, ate his toasted tea cake and played with his transformers. I think it’s time I stopped worrying and gave him a little more credit.

Last week seems to have flown by and yet again I’ve not taken as many photo’s as I would have liked to. Our days seem to be filled with school runs and grumpiness at the moment. Despite this I still want to capture the little moments of childhood as they are so fleeting after all.

Here are my favourite photo’s from this week.

Jake

Since Daisy went back to school after Christmas Jake hasn’t been himself. He hasn’t wanted to play much and has just wanted to sit with me and watch TV. I was delighted last week when he asked for the playdough, he sat for ages squashing and rolling.

Daisy

Despite having a restless night and feeling a little under the weather Daisy still managed a big cheesy grin at breakfast time. I’ve always been a morning person and I think Daisy has inherited that from me.
