It’s been a funny old week this week with a lot of our days mainly spent playing indoors / at home, or at the village park with friends and cousins. The plans we had went mostly out of the window, with the days being more spontaneous and slow which was needed after lots of travelling and late nights! We have enjoyed another week of the Summer Holidays, with my favourite ordinary moment this week being that of seeing Ethan & Megan sat together sewing and creating fabulous hand puppets.
Before we even broke up from school for the Summer break, Ethan had asked if we could sew and make hand puppets one day in the hols. He has loved the idea since he made one in class and wanted to make them again with Megs, and so of course I said “Yes”! It has taken us a couple of weeks to track some kits down, but on Thursday, in good old faithful Wilko’s we found them – and he couldn’t have been more excited!
On Friday we had to wait in for the BT man to come (round 3) and so whilst I used the time to pack for our holiday, they sat sewing, sticking and creating. The harmony and friendship between them was lovely! The help Ethan offered his sister was great to witness, and it was a moment that made my heart full! I hope they will alway have a desire to hang out with each other.
I love the ages the kids are at right now – young enough to still need me, yet old enough to do tricky things independently. I love to see them getting along, laughing and chatting about people and life whilst they sit out on the decking sewing hand puppets! It was an ordinary Friday, an ordinary moment of sibling harmony and therefore a great mama moment!
