THESE TWO | OCTOBER
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 flown by, it only feels like yesterday I was popping up a post about them from September! I really wish time would slow down, just so I could get a grip on whats happening and cherish those moments more. Its been a full on month.
I have to admit, some parts have been really hard. G has had nothing but trouble at school this month and we have had a few meltdowns and I’ve really struggled to process what she has been telling me. Its all been resolved but its bought quite a few tears with it. Sometimes I wish I could put both G and H in a bubble and keep them from harms way.
We are back at swimming lessons and G has improved so much. She really is doing so well and she makes me so proud. She has mastered most strokes and she has really been enjoying it. All I can ask is she attends and has fun. At the moment that’s what is happening, so it makes me a happy mummy. H has improved so much too. He managed to swim a whole width without arm bands and any kind of help. He, as was I was so impressed!
Last month I spoke about sibling rivalry and how hard I was finding it. This month it has become so much better. With a ban on technical devices in place I have seen a massive change in both G and H’s behaviour. Its amazing what a break from any kind of device does to your child. Its definitely something that has been welcomed in our house!
H has had a good month at school. He is always learning new things and is forever asking questions about things he has covered in school. He has moved up two book levels since last month, which is phenomenal. His writing is still something we need to improve on, but he is doing well and thats all I can ask of him. He is loving school and spending time with his friends.
This month has been such a wonderful month. I have really enjoyed watching both G and H grow. Its lovely to see and something I will always cherish.
