THESE TWO | MAY

Every month I have decided to pop up a post all about my two. It only seems fitting considering this is a parenting blog. It’s rare that I blog about G and H specifically. I blog about how hard I find parenting and the struggles that come along with it, but not individually on how they are doing. I used to do updates every few months on how each were doing but I’ve decided to do it slightly different with how I go about the blog post. Monthly posts I feel will work better, and it’s a prompt for me to take more photos. Which is what I am lacking lately!

May has been such a lovely month and we close it with a week away. Its been a lovely sunny month and we as a family have spent some really lovely quality time together.

G has grown in confidence this month. She has been taking part in dance lessons at school and its something that she seems really passionate about. I am amazed at how confident she has become. Several occasions when I have  dropped her off at school for early morning club her teacher has commented on how well she is doing in class. Its lovely to hear and makes me super proud. This term school wise, G managed to complete a piece of homework without any help and really put her all into it. It was a great piece and something she should be very proud of.

Health wise, G has a fair few problems.. We started the month with G declaring that she couldn’t see. This was a worry as although she wears glasses, we have recently {within the last few years} been discharged from the hospital for her eyes. Thankfully nothing out of the blue came up and a small prescription change will hopefully help. G has also been under the weather quite a bit this month. A cough and a cold and then the week before we were due to go away she came down with a double ear infection, with a strong dose of antibiotics she was fit and well before we left.

May has been a very important month as its the last month H will ever be 5! He is on countdown to his birthday which is now just a few short weeks away. Its been a busy month of compiling birthday wish lists. H has progressed so much at school this month. His writing and reading has improved immensely and he always has a pen and a book in his hand. H has become rather obsessed with Hotwheels cars through May. He has put a rather large plastic fantastic garage on his birthday list so he has been busy building up his collection of cars ready for when {if} he gets it!

We have really been trying to influence H to do things for himself this month. We are making a conscious effort of not pandering to him all the time. Its hard as he is the baby of the family and I feel like I should do it, but there comes a time when really he should be doing it for himself.

Like every month we are still very much battling with the bedtime routine. I find this the hardest part of the day and we really need to get on top of it as its causing both G and H to have some bad temper moments due to tiredness.

May has been a rather lovely month and we have finished on a high with a very lovely holiday. Seeing both G and H bond has been lovely and very much a joy to watch.

THESE TWO | JANUARY

Every month I have decided to pop up a post all about my two. It only seems fitting considering this is a parenting blog. It’s rare that I blog about G and H specifically. I blog about how hard I find parenting and the struggles that come along with it, but not individually on how they are doing. I used to do updates every few months on how each were doing but I’ve decided to do it slightly different with how I go about the blog post. Monthly posts I feel will work better, and it’s a prompt for me to take more photos. Which is what I am lacking lately!

This month has seen G and H back at school. The start of a new term and the start of something very new to G. This term the school are sending Year 3 to swimming lessons and although G goes outside of school its ideal that she gets the extra lessons the school are offering. She was really excited to go but had a little blip when push came to shove and I struggled to settle her the morning of the first lesson. Come home time she was fine and absolutely loved it {I knew she would as she is an excellent swimmer}

H has also had a big change when it comes to school and that is a new teacher. Last term was quite stressful for H. A new teacher at the start of September didn’t work out so he ended up with a supply but this month has seen a new permanent teacher start and so far he is loving her.

Both G and H academically are doing really well and I couldn’t be prouder of them both. Outside of school both do swimming lessons and clubs at school which they both adore doing. G especially loves her Gymnastics which she does before school every Friday.

January hasn’t been a very busy month socially. H has had lots of parties to attend {4 in one week at one point!} and as G gets older the invites slow down which she isn’t overly happy about! We have met up with family of weekends and spent time with just us as a four.

Lastly G and H’s bond grows ever stronger. I love watching their relationship blossom sometimes they have days where they declare they hate each other. The majority of the time they thrive on each others company. This month we saw snow fall, something H hasn’t really seen and watching them both in the garden, snow ball fighting and laughing, big belly laughing made me melt a little. I am so glad they have each other.

These two in January have been a joy to watch.
