When it comes to traveling with children, us mums have to think about everything. Everyone with kids knows how much stuff you need. You’re still trying to pack as little as you can. But I have seen parents with actual car seats that can be pushed at airports simply because they need it for their rental car for example. There is actually an easier way now.
For Matthew’s birthday he received a lot of Lego. I haven’t bought him any Lego before because he was never into it and never asked for it. The closest we ever got to Lego, was Mega Blocks and Lego Duplo. I am happy to help him out with everything as indeed I enjoy building these myself.
We are half way through the month of September. The last two weeks I have definitely noticed a climate change and the short sleeved tops are going further and further back in my wardrobe. I have done a bit of shopping lately for the kids for some more long sleeve tops. Two days ago I even had to get out the winter coats. It is getting a bit chilly in the morning.
In just two weekends time I will be heading off to the BlogOn conference again. I have been for the first time in May. I enjoyed it so much that I bought a ticket for the September one, too. Plus I like a little mini trip away every now and again. Manchester is not exactly far with a half an hours flight time from Ireland.
This time last year I did an interview with Matthew who was then entering pre-school at the time. One year on and he has been going to big school almost two weeks already. I was curious to see what his answers would be now a year later. Year by year his speech would also improve. In fact he talks a lot now.
Last week we set off on another adventure in County Kildare. Just before the weather gets bad (which it is right now!). Hubby and me took a day off to treat Matthew on his birthday while Chloe attended creche. It was nice to have one on one time and just focus on one child. I looked up beforehand where we could possibly go. This time we chose Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park. It looked good on the website.
