This month has been the kind of month I long for when hubby gets busy at work and is away for days on end. A month full of ordinary family moments. Evenings when hubby is home before the children fall asleep. Mornings when there is a second pair of hands to help get the girls out of the door and off to school and preschool. Weekends of just being together as a family.
Having that time together makes such a difference. We all feel more settled for it, we’re all happier. The girls have enjoyed moments where they get to have Daddy all to themselves (and I take advantage and get some me time!) Hubby has got into the LEGO Dimensions game and it seems to be the favourite activity on a Saturday morning at the moment! Jessica is getting quite good at working out how to play it and every so often manages to discover a new move that hubby hadn’t come across! Sophie is generally quite happy as long as she has the character she wants – her characters tend to just wander aimlessly around the screen but she’s quite happy with that.
My favourite moments though are the screen-free ones. The moments of getting out and about in the fresh air and exploring together, or time spent playing a game or joining in with the girls as they play with their toys. Sitting around the table eating dinner together (on the rare occasions that both girls are happy eat what is on their plates anyway!)
This month’s photos are all about the ordinary family moments. I left them to the last minute and just grabbed a few snaps of the four of us playing together with the Playmobil and snuggling up on the bed together. The little everyday moments that make up family life – and the moments that I know I’ll miss when hubby gets busy again and I find myself flying solo once more. In the meantime though, I’ll make the most of having some family time!
