I'm still navigating the new normal here and seeing what works for us. In all honesty last week didn't even give me a chance at seeing what the new normal would be. What with the Ben returning back to work last Monday, and with Cohen and myself coming down sick. He with an ear infection which saw him cry and scream for the entire first day I was flying solo with the three kids. Then there's me coming down with a throat infection and two days of body aches, chills and what not. As a result it's all about the kids at the moment, but this week will also see some more changes for me, which should allow me to start carving out a new routine for managing the blog and business more agreeably with the family.
Here's a glimpse of last week as we moved through it. As I said it's all about the kids and keeping them happy as we settle into the new and changed and family dynamic of a family of five.
Mashing bananas for some muffin making.
Mini V's general status is feeding or asleep, he's a content bubba.
Puppet shows and taking turns.
Taking a break for a bite to eat and goofing around whilst out on the weekend having a family fun day.
When you have a big day this results.
Thankfully the week ended with the result of the last two pics above, which was much needed for blowing out cob webs, lifting spirits and getting a change of scenery. Our family fun day also resulted in a spot of op shopping but not a single little treasure was unearthed. I guess you can't have all the luck all the time right?
