I did not want to get up this morning. I went to bed when Bella did last night but this morning just was not happening for me. Bella eventually convinced me to get my butt out of bed and head downstairs. Now I’m trying this new less screen time with Bella so she actually plays and might be able to focus a bit more but that didn’t start our day well either. She knows how to turn the TV on so if she gets up before us he will go downstairs and turn the TV on. Now we have a sound bar attached she can’t turn the sound on but that doesn’t bother her. She’ll just watch the screen.
I did turn the TV off once I made it downstairs. This did cause a little drama but she soon settled down and found some of her dolls. She was happy playing and making them chat to each other. It was cute and she didn’t seem to fussed I was in the room. Cinderella was playing with a fairy.
Once I’d got Bella dressed I asked her if she wanted to play with her house or castle. She chose her house so I brought that out into the living room and her box of little figures. And that’s where she spent most of her morning playing with her figures and little house.
I sat up to the dinning room table and tried to get on top of our daily blogs. I get so far and then I seem to fall behind for a few days. I managed to actually get on top of all my blogs so that was an achievement.
Bella soon wanted to be with me so came and joined me at the dinning room table. Luckily Bella’s playdough is situated in the dinning room so it was easy enough to entertain. She happily sat next to me while I blogged. She was using her cutters.
After a few minutes Bella didn’t want to sit next to me, she wanted to sit on my lap while I worked. So she climbed on to my lap and brought what she had made with her – a caterpillar. This was a big caterpillar. She told me all about it and that it could fly.
While she sat on me she pulled her caterpillar apart to make lots of baby caterpillars.
The rest of the day was a pretty chilled out one. Bella wanted to eat her unicorn Easter egg from aunty Rachel so we cracked that open and she spent the day snacking on bits of chocolate.
When Daly made it home from work, I popped the pizzas into the oven for us to enjoy. Daly popped something on TV and we settled down as a family to eat our dinner and watched TV. I really wanted to watch crappy Saturday night TV but Daly was having none of that.
Thankfully where he’s on days he wasn’t downstairs for long after dinner. Instead he headed up to bed and got full use of the TV. I found Britain’s got Talent on catchup so sat down to enjoy that while I sorted out some activities for Bella for her home learning. I decided to focus on minibeasts for the next few weeks. So while watching Britain’s got Talent I sat on the floor with my laptop searching on Twinkl and printing bits out. I also had my GTA on in the corner as I thought I could play for a little bit once I’d finished with the laptop.
Night all and let’s see what adventures tomorrow holds for us.
