Trying to balance everything during the week can be hectic and stressful. We like to spend one day a week relaxing, spending time together and not worrying about the endless ‘list of things’ we have to do..
On a Sunday we like to start the morning off slow. We have breakfast & coffee, and chill out together before getting ready for the day. We try to relax (as much as we can with a toddler).
We usually plan activities that will keep us entertained but aren’t too strenuous. It usually involves going for Sunday Lunch and a trip to the park for some fresh air. The restaurant we go to has a kids section which keeps Darragh entertained. (It’s almost like a date, if we ignore the fact that he is climbing on top of the playhouse!!) Sometimes we do some family baking, this week we made rice Krispie buns…let’s just say i’m still trying to get them off the floor!!!! Why does no one tell you how fast they harden???? Oh, and our entire house has little chocolate hand prints all over it, I wonder who that was…
In the evening we watch a movie and have lots of cuddles and treats = The movie doesn’t really get watched and our toddler eats all the treats!
After a busy day, we all have a bath early. When the little one is tucked up, we get organised for the rest of the week.
Overall, its seen that you really can’t have too much of a relaxing day with a toddle but it’s worth a try!
