It struck me yesterday that Isla, Daddy and Noah have all visited A&E since lockdown started. Isla as she had a concussion. Daddy, as he has been getting chest pains, which turned out to be torn cartilage by his ribs and at the weekend, Noah. Noah presented with abdominal pains, to the right of his belly button and he was in a lot of pain. I wanted to document what happened at the stop in hospital, in case it helps with someone else in the future.
Well, I’ve certainly learnt a lot about Minecraft since lockdown began. I haven’t played it, but the kiddies love playing it and talking about it too. Last week Minecraft updated and they were both so so excited about it that they almost exploded. I had lots of animated sentences such as “Look Mummy, it’s got new Crying Obsideon“. I had to respond with excitement, but had no idea what it meant. So this is a little Minecraft for parents guide, which will help you to understand what they are talking about. Obviously we are encouraging both offline play to balance out their fun too!
Boxing is a professional sport (martial art) in which two opponents punch each other by using their gloved fists. If the idea of you punching opponents, and getting punched in the face doesn’t intimidate you, then you may have a flair for boxing. But, before you make up your mind to join a boxing club, there are 6 things you need to know about boxing classes. Professional boxers get paid to fight each other; it doesn’t matter whether you’re knocked out or not.
Whilst we are still in the Easter holidays, I thought I would share a fun idea to keep the children entertained (and the grown-ups for setting it up). This is a homelearning egg hunt, the prizes could be anything from a bag of sweets to tokens towards something else. Like earning so many minutes of tablet time that day. My kids love earning things.
Yes, I have a small obsession with stationery and so I thought it was only right to brighten up the kiddies homeschooling by getting them some new bits and pieces. When you have vibrant and fun new things around you, it helps to motivate you. I find that anyway. Here are my favourite Paperchase items to add some fun for after the Easter holidays, it’s a back to school haul if you will.
It might sound crazy to celebrate Day 1 of homeschooling, it is important to me to give ourselves a pat on the back though. Yesterday was the first day I had to do the combined homeschooling and working from home thing. It was lots of fun and stressful, all in one. But I think the stress was only due to the pressure I put upon myself.
We love reviewing toys over at the Constant household, Noah was super excited to receive the new Dragon Ball figures from Bandai UK. Dragon Ball is one of the most successful manga and anime series of all time. Now, kiddies can bring to life the characters in their own home with these action figures from Bandai.
I have always been close to my grandma so it was inevitable that the kiddies would be close to their great grandma. We try to go there and visit every other week, albeit that can be troublesome with all of the clubs. Having fun is important for the kids at Grandmas, as it is for Grandma herself. There are lots of things we do together, and we try to make it as stress free as possible.
