Time to wave goodbye to another month and reflect before we greet the new one. October has had some bumps in the road but on the whole, we can’t complain. I don’t think anyone’s life is carefree and easy – it’s all about you knuckle down and overcome those challenges and setbacks.
We’ve finally found our feet in terms of the back to school routine. This has allowed us to make the most of our weekends. With What The Dad Said now able to be at home more it has been good to have our family unit together. Plus the half-term holidays have kept us busy – although I’m disappointed that we never made it to a pumpkin patch this year.
The month that was… October
Boo and What The Dad Said
October is planning month for us both, With all three children’s birthday in November. Plus Christmas just around the corner we need to make sure that we have lists ready and things organised. Touchwood I think we are just about there which is much needed as we have a busy November ahead of us,
Her last month as a tween and I’d love to say her mood swings too but I think we have a few more years of those ahead of us. As always Roo has been busy with an array of school activities. Thankfully the school holidays has given her a reprieve from those. Allowing her to enjoy some time with friends and a day at Comic Con.
As he approaches his ninth birthday he has been highlighting to me just how much he has grown up over the past year. Taking part in a tag rugby festival which is something I would have never thought he would do. As well as finding his feet with coding, loving the opportunity to attend an Amazon Robotics Workshop. With a new coding club at school which he has been invited to attend.
Her first preschool parents meeting went well, which is reassuring that she has taken to move from day nursery to preschool in her stride. Not that I thought that she would have an issue, but it is always good to hear that we have done the right thing for her. Although she is starting to fall more often so I need to reach out to the physio team to see if there is anything we can do to help with her hypermobility.
