When Olivia's first started pre school I didn't think about the Sumer holidays, why would I? She was with me all day everyday day and I like to think we always did fun things (chores and life obviously in there too but made as fun as I could for 2.5 yr old and me!)
Now she has completed her first "school year" and we are half way through the holidays I can honestly say it's been amazing so far! She is only 3 but had absolutely loved pre school! She had a few days of wobbles here and there at the start but now she actually cries on the mornings she doesn't go and I have to tell her she will go the next day instead. As much as I'm pleased she loves it I obviously want her to be wanting to be with me more.
So the past 3 weeks of having her with us (myself and Bethany) all day everyday and doing so many fun things together really has made me appreciate every day with her even more. She is normally such a daddy's girl but now is all mummy! Much to my delight haha! She has grown so so much the past year since Bethany arrived and school started she is a proper little girl now and not just a toddler. Bittersweet.
We have done rock pooling, parks, play dates, sleep overs at nanna's, horse sanctuary, baking, crafts, picnics and so many more "little" things (playdough etc)
We still have the other half of the holidays to go and Iv so many things still planned for us, including some sofa days with tv and indoor picnics. I really was worried about entering Olivia while at home as school does so many things that we at home can't always keep up if you like, but we really are having so much fun together and I'm in no rush for the holidays to be over.
If you are in the same or similar situation I'd love to hear about your holidays so far.
