šŸ©· My beautiful familyā€¦

I love this photo, itā€™s not often we get a photo of the 4 of us. The children are growing up so quickly, itā€™s really important to me to capture these memories. Noah will be taller than me soon (I have heels on in this photo). 

This photo was taken the other weekend at my cousin-in-laws wedding. It was a wonderful day and the sun was shining. 

Have you enjoyed your half term with your familam so far?

Very proud of my little man cub todayā€¦ whose not so little anymore. He had 2 adult teeth extracted this morning, in preparation for a fixed brace fitting.

I knew what was coming to a certain extent but poor Noah didnā€™t. Thankfully the dentist knew the right tricks, he asked Noah to close his eyes so Noah couldnā€™t see the ghastly needle. šŸ˜± Mummy on the other hand nearly passed out!

Then watching the dentist do a tug of war with 2 of Noahā€™s teeth was horrifying too. The force to pull out a tooth is quite considerable. I hadnā€™t really thought about it before. But the crunching sounds were šŸ¤¢. 

He didnā€™t faint, albeit he nearly did and he hardly complained at all throughout the day. He is super brave and made me very proud.

Itā€™s horrible seeing your babies in pain. The worst part is Noah has to have 2 more teeth removed in a few weeks & heā€™ll know what is going to happen.šŸ˜±

Noah said heā€™s going to be poorly on that day! Haha!

A not so nice story but I tried to make it less gory for those that hate dentist or are just squeamish.

The busiest weekend. Ever! But worth it to see  their š—µš—®š—½š—½š˜† faces. Today was dance competitions and Islaā€™s team won šŸ„‡ Yeah! And as captain of the dance team, Isla got to collect the trophy. It was so awesome.ā£
ā£
Very proud Mumma alert. She throws herself into these š˜€š—¶š˜š˜‚š—®š˜š—¶š—¼š—»š˜€ and takes it on without a care in the world. The only way I can tell sheā€™s nervous is the adrenaline aftermath. She could not stop shaking afterwards. ā£
ā£
Needless to say, Islaā€™s head hit the pillow tonight & she fell straight to sleep. ā£
ā£
Anyone else have a busy weekend? ā£

How can we get our children to love physical exercise?

Getting our children engaged in anything can seem like a major mountain to climb, especially when it comes from us. We give our children advice to do things because it's good for them.
