Siblings August 2020

Another month, another siblings update. Here we are in mid-August and it seems strange to think that I’ve had these two as my constant companions for almost five months now and only have a couple of more weeks with them around all day, if all goes well with schools reopening. Whilst I’m looking forward to …

Siblings July 2020

And here we are again, another month, another siblings update. Still pretty much in lockdown, though it’s been easing all around us in recent weeks. The kids are still home with me every day, as neither of them are in the school years that have been invited back into school. We’re pretty much still staying …

Siblings June 2020

Another month has rolled round, and the kids are still spending all day, every day with one another. There’s no doubt that they miss their friends, they want to be with them. But, they are keeping each other company, playing happily together every day and supporting each other with their school work. It’s weird how …

Siblings May 2020

It’s time for another Siblings update, and of course, it’s another lock-down edition. You would think that having to spend this much time with each other would cause a lot of friction, but not so apparently. I mean, I would love to have some space of my own and some solitude, but it seems that’s …

Siblings April 2020

This is our first Siblings lockdown post. Will it be the last? I doubt it. These two have actually been handling lockdown quite well so far, so I’m hoping that continues. The day that the schools closed was sad for them. Little Man was upset about not being able to see his best friend for …

Siblings March 2020

Having recently spent two weeks at Disney World in very close quarters with one another, these two are super close at the moment. They are spending all of their out of school time together playing and making up their own stories and games. It is all about imaginative play and there is usually lots of …

Siblings February 2020

You won’t be surprised to learn that the big topic in our house this month has been Disney World. The countdown has been on, and we fly this weekend. It’s interesting to see how differently my two react to a big event coming up. Boo gets higher and higher. She becomes louder, even more energetic …

Siblings January 2020

The first month of the year and we are settling into it well. Boo and Little Man are back at school and are happy to be there. Whilst I think we would all have rather had another couple of weeks of Christmas, they were content going back on the first day, looking forward to seeing …

Siblings December 2019

Here we are, our last siblings post of 2019. The year has flown by, and as I seem to be getting old, they do go faster every single year! This is the busy month, the month when the kids are the most excited along with being the most tired. They have so much going on …

Siblings November 2019

You know that these two get along pretty well together. They always have, to be honest, and I do put a lot of that down to Boo’s easygoing temperament and her desire to nurture and look after her brother at all times. But I feel like they are closer than they have ever been lately. …

Siblings October 2019

How has it been a full month since I last shared a siblings update? The time is flying by, we’re hurtling towards the end of the year. This month we have had Boo’s 10th birthday. She had a lovely time celebrating it and Little Man was suitably enthusiastic as she opened every gift. He didn’t …

Siblings August 2019

We are now into the full swing of the summer holidays, which means that Boo and Little Man are as thick as thieves. Their days revolve around playing with one another, giggling together and lying around all limbs entangled together. We’ve not been away this break and we don’t plan to. You’d think that would …

Siblings July 2019

At last the summer is upon us. We can see the long school break on the horizon now, just a few more days to go, we can do this! The kids are looking forward to finishing school this week, they are looking forward to slowing the pace for a few weeks. We actually don’t have …

Siblings May 2019

The Easter holidays saw these two spending a lot of quality time together and we all loved it. We spent much of it at home, with friends and family popping in, though they also had a couple of adventures out with their grandparents. Boo and Little Man do get on very well and play happily …

Siblings April 2019

This month the siblings have got themselves a new sibling…of sorts! Unsurprisingly, this month has been all about our newest member of the household, Herbie. The kids were excitedly counting down to his arrival and since then they have been absolutely besotted with him. As I expected, Boo has been brilliant helping me with him, …
