Creating a space without …..

 

I feel sad that Bear and Bell have to share a bedroom, I would so love them to have their own personal space where they can chill-out and have their own me time. Living in a flat is so hard at time’s, especially day’s when I know Bear want’s his own space and his own time now his getting bigger.

It is also hard to think about making a lovely bedroom for a boy and girl which won’t look odd, which they won’t grow out of and especially they both will like. I choose originally half pink and half blue bedroom which was nice but Bell and Bear drew on the walls! Hubby was in charge! Now they have  white lining painted wall’s, beautiful Bunting and some of their stunning art work! It work’s really well.

When Bear was born I was very adamant that he wouldn’t have clothes, bedroom or bedding with character’s on such as Pepper Pig or Thomas the tank engine. I feel quite proud that he hardly had anything like that. Please do not get me wrong he had a few bit’s of Thomas the Tank clothing but that was about it. Same with Bell, she has a few Pepper Pig bits of clothing and Shoes but nothing over the top.

Please also do not get me wrong the Nightie and Pajamas draw is full of character’s such as Elsa from Frozen, Pepper pig, Spider-man and Toy story.

I don’t know why I don’t really like character clothing on children. It does look cute, but for me personally growing up their wasn’t a wide range of clothing like that, so I never had that type of clothing.

If Bell and Bear ask for something with Pepper Pig or Spider man I certainly will not say no, as it is their personal choice and I fully encourage their development of personal choice and independence.

Disney Cars ….

We Recently spent the day at Brands Hatch.

I came across a post on Facebook that mentioned the Car’s from the Disney film Cars were going to be up there!

I was a tad excited we didn’t tell the children we were going so all the way there we had “are we there yet?” “where are we going?” “are we going on a plane?” “I’m hungry!” the usual rambling’s of a child or two!

We took packed lunch, I am so glad we did a Burger and chips was almost £8 with out a drink, but the food did look amazing for burger and chips!

There were a lot of car’s from america NYPD and LA police force and a man in uniform!

The children loved watching the cars zoom around the track and we were going to walk in the pit area but Bell was starting to slow down, this was the first day we didn’t take a buggy!

There is a little play park and there were bouncy castles the lady running one of them even swapped with the gentleman so she could help Bell which was very thoughtful of her to do even though I was very happy to go on too!

The children saw a ice cream van and asked for one so we said yes especially as the weather was very warm and we did so much walking around!
