My parenting skills

So after an eventful morning with friends at a local tea room with outdoor play for a littles, why do we feel under such pressure from other parents?? The owners of the tea room couldn't be more welcoming and with it being about the children quite happy for them to do as they please... There was water play here our girls definitely weren't afraid of getting wet, which then in turn led them to strip off to vest and knickers.. It's warm here they were protected from the sun as well as they could be.. So why did we feel the need to ensure our children got dressed when they were doing no harm and playing happily... Everyone has different ways of parenting not one is right or wrong.. Should we be pressured or judged aslong as the children are safe and happy?

Trying to tame a 5 year old

So just lately Katie 5, has totally gone backwards I thought because of her unruly behaviour at home school would be managing to escape her mood, unfortunately her teacher spoke to me last week and informed me this wasn't the case...
So now we are trying new things instead of Sundays being a chilled day we went on a family picnic in the rain.. 

She often tries to compete with her younger sister who is currently going through the "terrible twos" trying to explain to her that she should be setting the example to her is going nowhere apparently it's much more fun to throw a strop fake or not...

So we have come to the conclusion any attention is better than nothing for Katie... So going to praise as much as possible, which is definitely easier said than done..
You try to swing everything a positive way but when you have had a full on day by the time 5pm comes its a struggle to smile...

New day tomorrow, calm mummy!

Love having my biggest lady off school, just so nice to not have to get up,rush about and get out.. 

Monday - we had friends over for a BBQ, the more friends over for a drink
Tuesday - swimming in the morning, then to a soft play place and dinner with friends in the evening, I then got the girls to bed and went off out to a medium night, very interesting.. Not sure how much to believe
Wednesday - we had a chilled morning, girls went off to grandma and granddads and I gutted the kitchen
Thursday - daddy was off to do his motorbike test, girls loved seeing him in the morning. We went to meet some friends at the park.
Friday - we went on a bike ride with friends, the children all love getting together.. 

No plans for the weekend, we need to clean cars and other housework I am sure it will be it off
