The children enjoyed a relaxed day watching movies and performing shows for us. The girls decided that as they weren’t having a ‘cute girls hairstyle’ today, they would give Judah a ‘cute boys hairstyle.’ So funny, he loved it and kept it in all day. James and I called it ‘the boo’ as that’s what he reminded us of, from Monsters Inc.
The rest of the evening was spent packing, so hardly an action packed day of fun for the children, but they still had a lovely day. Sometimes, I feel so much pressure to make every day exciting for them. I guess that’s what us mum’s do in the Summer Holidays, but especially for the girls as in the future we would aim to go away somewhere with them, like the year we went to Butlins. When you go away there’s always entertainment for them, so you don’t have to think, or feel guilty because they’re entertained. It doesn’t do them any hard to have a relaxed day every once in a while.
‘The Princess’ made me laugh so much with her idea of packing. I told her it would be cold and this is what she packed in her trunki. I guess a princess can never be under prepared for potential royal engagements.
I downloaded ‘Turbo’ onto the iPad in case the children were bored in the car. I’ve not seen it, so hoping to get chance myself at some point. Ignoring my anxiety, I was prepared to travel the next day.
James and I got to bed very late and I set my alarm for 3:30am tomorrow. This didn’t leave much time. Not the best of days, but hey, this is a realistic account of our blended family life.
