Your child’s first sleepover: preparing them (and yourself)

Your child’s first sleepover: preparing them (and yourself)

In many ways, having a sleepover is really one of the first rites of passage that your children will ever have. It is an important kind of socialising for many children, and it can be useful for them in terms of gaining and developing friendships. It is also important for you as a parent; events such as the first sleepover are very often tests which seem designed to enable you to begin to let your child go out into the world. In all likelihood, you will be a little worried first time around. That is perfectly natural, but it’s healthy to try and let it happen too. In this post, we are going to look into some of the things to consider if your child is going on their first sleepover.VIEW the POST

Wimpole Home Farm on the first day of Spring

I didn’t realise it was the first day of Spring on Sunday, until we got home from a trip to Home Farm at Wimpole Hall, a lovely National Trust estate near us. What a perfect way to spend the start of Spring, running around a beautiful location full of flowers and baby animals of course. The kids had a great time exploring and playing on the tractors.

A day for bubbles…

A day for bubbles…

I have found it difficult today  and in no way shape or form can it compare to that of Jennie and her husband. Jennie lost her little baby princess at 9 months old and Matilda Mae was only 8 days older than Isla Rae, you can probably empathise with why it has been a difficult day now! Today is Matilda's first birthday. I have tried not to think about next week today, as my princess is one next week and I feel guilty. I feel guilty for having my baby girl and preparing all the things I have for her birthday and her christening on the 12th May and that Jennie, well she has prepared for today in a completely different way.
