Having three kids is very loud, busy and crazy. Three little people all with their own agendas and personalities all wanting to be heard and at times I feel I can’t keep up. Ultimately, Charlie can be the one who is made to wait the most as he is older, has a wider understanding and isn’t likely to try and fly off the trampoline at any given time! He often has to hang on whilst I intervene in a scrap or rush to stick a toddler on the toilet. As a whole, he’s very patient but I can tell he gets a bit annoyed.
The Easter break has been dominated by potty training so we haven’t ventured very far. He’s had a few afternoons out and about with his Grandad and aunty which he loved, but on Friday the girls were at nursery for three hours so we decided to do something fun.
My dad has been off work so we spent the morning in Ironbridge. It has become one of our go to places to spend a few hours as it is so beautiful and just down the road. It also is home to the most amazing cupcakery (sorry Slimming World!)
We had a mooch around the antique centre where Charlie couldn’t believe there was something that was 90 years old (and had no idea what a typewriter was!)I also stumbled across a vintage fashion shop which was BEAUTIFUL and stocked the most gorgeous shoes, I was in heaven.
Quite honestly the most amazing cupcakes EVER. Really gutted.
Such a simple way to spend a few hours and let Charlie be the centre of attention. We will have another three hours together next Friday so any suggestions would be great!
I’ve always said I want to try be able to give each child one on one time where possible and as the girls grow, it will be a necessity as they’re going to be around each other 24/7. I just want to try to strike the right balance and keep everyone happy!
