It’s been a month of cold weather and snow for us. The three have had lots of fun playing in it, and lots of fun snuggling up inside, away from it!
The kids have made it through the first term of the year, but are definitely in need of the vacation. This week is going to be spent having lots of fun, and a much needed rest.
After our unsettled start to the year the rest of January was rather calmer, and I have enjoyed watching the kids playing together.
The wee girl and her 6yo brother have become much closer over the last month, bickering aside, and can often be found playing some elaborate game. As she gets older the age gap between them shrinks, and the 6yo is the first person she wants to see in the morning.
They still fight, and she may be bossy, but it seems to be working for them. For now anyway!
The 9yo however makes an escape from the noise more regularly now, understandably wanting to do different things than his younger siblings. He reads, he plays games, he watches different TV shows.
But, at the end of the day, when tiredness has set in, this is the scene I often come across when I walk in to the living room.
And then they see the camera and this happens…
They never fail to make me smile :)
