Eilidh's Birthday Weekend

For Eilidh’s birthday this year she gave us no indication as to what she would like. She murmured something occasionally about wanting new Heelys but like most other children she changed her mind constantly. If you're anything like us, you'll be in the same predicament as us - the kids have far too many toys, clothes etc that there's no place left for these things to live! For birthdays instead of buying more toys and games that will essentially be forgotten about moments after they've been opened we opt for experiences! Sometimes we'll get an annual pass for a zoo or aquarium etc (which is great because you get the use of this all year round)! Other things we have done is book classes or activities like last year Eilidh attended two weeks of tennis lessons during the summer holidays which she loved! We also encourage family (mostly just our parents) to do the same if they ask what the kids would like for birthdays and Christmas….

Organising for Starting School

When Eilidh was starting school for primary one I had so many dreamy ideas of how it would be.

Beautifully packed Pinterest inspired lunch boxes, with little notes inside them every day. Adorable hairstyles. Everything ironed, labelled and matching. Her school shoes would be polished and smart. Her P.E. kit would be the sweet skorts and lovely matching T-shirt and those classic Clark’s black gym shoes. We would enjoy doing homework together with beautifully wrapped jotters. Most of this was manageable, some days, then I remember how much else we have to do and it all mattered less and less. Also, I bloody hate homework, It takes away from family time, from Eilidh’s ‘down time’ and it can be a nightmare to find the time (& the will) to make her do it!
