I’ve been thinking a lot about bed sharing recently, as we plan to do so again when Squidgy is born. It’ll be interesting, sharing not only a room, but a bed with two children. Â We’ve considered our options – putting a single bed next to ours for Ameli, moving her and daddy into her room for a few months, or simply all squeezing into our bed. I don’t know yet, how we’re going to do it and am Â half hoping that the baby’s frequent wakings will drive Ameli into her own room, but somehow I’m not sure. I’m just not sure what’s going to happen, or how you bedshare with two children.Â
I try to get Ameli out of the house every day, because if I don’t she climbs the walls and wrecks the house. Some days we have playgroups, story time or just go to soft play, but whenever the weather is good, we try to get outdoors and expose the tips of our fingers and our eyeballs to some Vitamin D. (That was sarcasm, in case you missed it.)
This week we discovered a Â Sculpture Park full of amazing – and some rather random – art work. Â Ameli lovedÂ it. We spent more than two hours walking around by which time I was exhausted and ready to leave, but she was having none of it. I ended up chasing a two year old in and out of trees and around bits of metal and glass worth multiple thousands of pounds. I think we’ll return with Daddy next time!
Thanks for joining us for our week in pics.
You’re a proper two year old. People ask how old you are, and I say two, and I hate saying two because â€˜two’ can be anywhere from two and one day, which is still my baby or two and 11 months, which seems so grown up. So when people ask, I say you just turned two in October. You’re still on the â€˜baby’ side of two. At least you are to me.
