The play area in our home used to be our TV room so it’s now a place where the kiddos can play with their 1000 toys (and occasionally watch TV if mummy is feeling particularly frazzled), as well as where hubster and I retire after the bedtime battle. One day I’d like to have the two rooms separate as it isn’t particularly relaxing when you have to step over an incomplete puzzle strewn across the floor, and end up sitting on Thomas the Tank Engine that’s been left on the sofa. I know the play area will need to evolve over time with the kids so it needs to be a flexible space where toys can be interchanged easily as well as furniture added or removed depending on their interests. Right now with two kids under three it’s a bit of a free for all but it also means the kids are self-accessing their toys and playing without (too much) restriction. If only I wasn’t the usual suspect when it comes time to tea parties…
What a gorgeous Sydney day it was today – you’d hardly think it was winter what with the number of people wearing shorts and flip flops. It’s a hint of the impending spring season and with it more colour, less heavy gear, and polish on the nails. You know, the important stuff. #firstworldproblems
I’ve had the most shocking sleep this week. Between a two year old waking up in the middle of the night looking for that particular toy (no other substitute will do) and a 5 month old who seems to think it’s party time at 3am, slumber has been fleeting at best. I am constantly reminded “the days are long but the years are short” and to enjoy their precious young lives but right now I just want to curl into a ball, hide under the doona and have the longest sleep I’ve ever had.
