Kids Fashion – The Kiddies go to Disco

*Affiliate link.

Yay another kids fashion post, and this time it has a disco feel! The first year of primary school is almost over, and we are happily looking forward to the summer holidays. The kiddies had a blast at reception. They love school so much. I have never met kids that love school as much as my twins. It is so amazing how much they have grown in the first of big school. I am so proud of their achievements and they are even more proud of how far they have come.

The whole school thingy is still new to me. For example, I was shocked to discover that children get end of year reports at the end of the school year. I was under the impression that since they don’t get graded, there won’t be any school reports. So the school reports came as a pleasant surprise. They both did so very well, we couldn’t be more proud.

The Kiddies go to Disco

Their school has a disco last Christmas but the twins didn’t get to attend. So when the summer disco came, my daughter made sure they attended. The excitement before the disco was so much, that we had to take photos before heading off to remember the special day of their first disco!  I shared some other photos on my Instagram page as well.

My daughter loves the dress she has on. She is more of a dress/skirt girl, very girly. You won’t catch playing dress up wearing anything else. She loved he overall look, and had a blast at the disco. My son on the other hand doesn’t really cate what he wears, as long as I think it looks good, he is happy to wear it. It was warm day, so the easiest pieces for him wear were a t-shirt and shorts.

They both came back with many stories of who they danced with, music they played, what they ate, and more. It was definitely a fun evening for them.

These pictures show off their charming personalities perfectly. My duchess is very pictures and fashion. She loves posing and thinking of ways to style a look/piece differently. My little man on the other hand can’t be bothered with fashion, style or photography. He likes taking pictures every now and again, but likes cheeky pictures best. They behave alike and yet so different at the same time.

Why I am not surviving the school summer holidays

The school summer holidays are almost here and I can’t believe how quickly time has gone. I was shocked to check the school diary to discover the school will be closing in about a week. For a funny reason, I thought they were closing a few days after, but that’s not the case. The twins have had a wonderful first year at primary school. They have grown so much and have learnt a whole lot. I can’t believe how quickly they are growing. Sometimes I wish I could press pause on life; it feels like they are growing too quick! Which is why I have decided not to survive the school summer holidays. I have decided to make the most of it, treasure the 6 weeks we have together and enjoy every bit of it.

Why I am not surviving the school summer holidays

Back in the day, when it came to school summer holidays, it was a mixture of excitement and dread if I am being completely honest. I mean it is a whole 6 weeks holiday and my kids are very active. They behave better when there is a routine or stuff planned. We all don’t cope well when we go days with nothing to do but sit at home, and I am sure it is the same for many other families. We leave in a little village so there isn’t much to do here. The only soft play centre we had was sadly closed down some years ago, so there aren’t really activities for the kids to do nearby, except play in a playground, park and ride bikes/scooters outside.

However, I have made up my mind to enjoy the break and not survive it. Children are only young once, and the foundation is really important. I am from the school of thought that you should only have the number of kids you can deal with physically, emotionally and financially. So if you do that, you shouldn’t be tolerating the kids, you should be enjoying them. And if you are not, why did you have them?

Having the right mindset helps

I work from home which is why I initially dreaded school holidays because I am usually unable to work from home with the kids. So I end up doing all my work at night and I wake up tired and grumpy. But this time, I am doing things different. I am going to have work planned out well in advance so I don’t play catch up and get stressed out.

Children can be incredibly draining and I know all about that with my active twins, but I believe our mindset affects us parents more than their tantrums. Having a positive outlook helps and just cherishing the moments while they are still tiny and want to spend every waking moment with you is the way to go. That is how I see it and I am going to cherish very day of our summer school holiday, even if we end up doing nothing.

Until the next post, take care.

 

 

The Kiddies Review LeapFrog Learning School

*Affiliate Link.

My kids have a couple of LeapFrog toys and gadgets. The brand has so many entertaining and educative toys, which is why many kids loved them! Today is all about the amazing LeapFrog Learning School Playset! My kids have had this toy for years now and it is still a hit. They play with it almost everyday and they can easily do so for hours. My daughter really enjoys role play and she gets into her element with this LeapFrog Learning School. It is a cool toy to have around for the little ones.

This Leapfrog Learning School is a great way to introduce kids to the idea of school! It is great to get this toy when your little one is about to go into pre school as they can play with it at home beforehand and get into the idea of learning in a structured environment. The toy teaches school routines, listening comprehension and pretend play. It is great for children 2 years and over.

My kids (especially my daughter) really enjoy playing with this lovely toy as you can see in the video below. She could easily do this for hours if possible. I love the fact that it encourages imaginative play. This is something my kids are lacking now thanks to the gadget life we are all living. It also encourages fine motor skills with doors that open and close, a spinning carousel, accelerating slide.

The twins went on a bear hunt in school and have been talking about it non stop ever since! They really enjoyed the experience and love singing the going on a bear hunt song. Watch the video below and tell me what you think. You can also follow us on our YouTube Channel. We post new videos every week!
