My biggest boy. Don’t think he is loved less or is a less significant member of the family because there is only a smattering of pictures on the feed recently. That is his choice and I respect that. In our house, his presence and his needs are what has been taking up most of our time, or thoughts, our energy recently. We are at the very confusing start of an #ASD assessment and are devoted to supporting him. Half term has offered a welcome reprieve from his violent school refusal, stomach-aches over toast - and my heart goes out to any other children and their carer’s with #schoolavoidance or #schoolanxiety. If other parents are in the same boat, I can only hold out my hand and offer solidarity. We had some lovely people reach out after writing this post on the blog about the reality of our mornings. https://theparentingjungle.com/parenting/my-mornings-with-a-school-refuser-schoolanxiety/ I am not sure if I am hopeful that he receives a diagnosis, or that he doesn't. Thanks @wagamama_uk for letting him sit in the booth he wanted even though it was really busy.

Day 51 - I am grateful for how entertaining seeing the fish at the garden centre can be - especially when you get to feed them too! #366daysofgratitude #project366 #capturingtheday #oureverydaymoments #funseekingkids #themagicineveryday #theirwonderfulworld #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #littlelivelaughlove #worldoflittle #simplejoys

#TBT a throwback Thursday to 1993 and my 5th birthday. Turns out Grandad Ted was the 90s answer to vlogging. Grandma Barbie had found old videos which basically consisted of parties and holidays in the early 90s. I wonder where I get it from? A lovely nostalgic if not a little emotional way to spend a wet half term afternoon. 💛

Sophie had fun looking out for letters to unscramble on the Beautiful Birds trail at @iverenvironmentcentre this afternoon and making a bird feeder in the craft session afterwards. Such a fun place to explore even on a rainy winter day. #outdoorfun #countrykidsfun #outdoorsandhappy #wheremywelliestakeme #1000hoursoutside #theirwonderfulworld #adventureisoutthere #whatevertheweatherkids #funseekingkids #childhoodunplugged #capturingtheday #oureverydaymoments #themagicineveryday #letthembelittle #littlelivelaughlove #worldoflittles #kidsinnature

I think the Yorkshire Sculpture Park might be my absolute favourite place in the world. These photos were taken exactly 10 months apart. That’s a lot of growing!

Today my baby girl turned SIX! I had the day off work which was lovely, so after a morning of presents we headed to @marwellzoo 😍 It rained on and off throughout the day but it didn’t bother us one bit we still had a fab time, saw all our favourite animals and it was so nice and quiet!! We stopped off for dinner on the way home - which was the perfect way to finish off turning 6 🥳❤️ Happy Birthday to my gorgeous girl 👧🏼

This girl ❤️Smashed another parent's evening. She amazes me every day. She's still catching up, as she missed a year and a half of school when we were in France, but she's almost caught up in Maths (teacher says she has a gift) and her reading and writing it getting there too. Best of all, the teacher said she's a joy to have around and is so kind. What more could you want?

We met Dippy! If you are in and around rochdale you can see Dippy too! He leaves beginning of June to head towards his final destination! We felt incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to see him, the boys were in awe of his size. Arthur was impressed with the size of his feet and Jack was impressed with the fact it stood with no string supports. I am glad I took the 10 minute detour on the way to see it.

Weddings | It was odd turning up to a family wedding without Mark, especially one so far away! However he happily gave up his place in order for me to to take my mum. We were not quite sure what our car situation was going to be like so we were limited in seats. However the boys, mum and I made our way up to Rochdale for the wedding. I spent the majority of the pre/during/after service picking up/dropping off the bridal party and taking photos. It meant the boys spent alot of time standing around but they were so well behaved. I am extremely proud of each of them this weekend and how they behaved!

Thanks for sharing with #snaphappybritmums @teddy_runs_wild ‘And I’d choose you, . in a hundred lifetimes, . in a hundred worlds, . in any version of reality, . I’d find you and . I’d choose you’ . . My beautiful boy, you have my heart ❤️

A kid in a sweet shop! Seriously have you ever given your children money to spend on what they like? If you haven't be prepared for indecisions and lots of waiting around! Oliver and Arthur took ages!

Thanks for sharing with #snaphappybritmums @my_wild_foxx Be my valentine.... 🌹

We are off to North Devon for May half term and we can't wait! Just need to source some wetsuits and make lists! Lots and lots of lists! Beaches, meal ideas and things to do!

Getting ready to race towards the half term holiday!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The children's school has got inset days on Thursday and Friday this week, so we've not got long to go at all until the break.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've not really made any plans for the holiday, I think it's mainly going to be popping to the library, playing in the park, maybe a bus ride into town, hopefully catching up with friends at some point.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you normally do at half term?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #halfterm #halftermholiday #lovelifeoutside #capturingtheday #funseekingkids #letsgolittles #todaysmomentintime #whatevertheweatherkids #worldoflittles #happylittlebuttons #rememberingthesedays #capturemypositive #mumsnetparents #standstillmychild #theirwonderfulworld #outdoorsandhappy #explorerkids #themagicineveryday #freespiritedchildhood #curiouslittleexplorers #pbloggersuk #myfamilyadventures #perfectandproud #ukparentbloggers

Today felt like I was winning, I had time to clean and tidy before leaving for the school run. I had time to spend with the boys! We made it to school in great time just for Oliver to turn round and say he forgot his coat! I am glad we had the car as we were able to drive home and back in time for the school gates to open.

Oliver has been trying so hard, so hard on learning to swim! He has watched Jack move up the stages and each week he asks what his progress level is. Finally he did it! He reached stage 2 and he was so pleased with himself!

Oh to be 5 again and for it to be acceptable to wear fluffy unicorn earmuffs on cold windy days!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #unicorn #pbloggersuk #myfamilyadventures #ukexplore #candidmoments #lovelifeoutside #curiouslittleexplorers #letsgolittles #documentyourdays #mamarazzisquare #capturingtheday #chasingnature #funseekingkids #freespiritedchildhood #runwildmychild #outdoorsandhappy #theirwonderfulworld #momentsoverposes #letthembelittle #ourwhimsicaldays #ukparentbloggers #welshparentbloggers #myhappycapture #ohheymama #cameramama #letthemexplore #wildandfreechildren

Running free 😍 making the most of blue skies before the stormy weather comes in 🙌🏻

Blending in with all the textures. Demonstrating more strong hiding skills. #proud
