#whatwedidthisweek – This week has been a really tough week.

This week has been one of those weeks where I’ve regretted my decision to work full-time. It’s only a temporary measure and ends in the middle of July, but at the moment I’m so tired that I wish I could fast-forward to July.

It’s also frustrating as I’d much rather be here blogging my butt off but hey we all have bills to pay.

So Pancake Day we had normal pancakes with sugar and lemon (the kids had fruit as well).

We seem to be ending our days at the moment by putting on music and having a bit of a boogey before winding down with a game of some sort. We have a version of headbands, but the one we have has glasses that you attach the cards to and each person has to guess what animal or person they have. It’s my least favourite game of Isabelle’s as she cheats something chronic. We have coloured glass doors on one of our units so she either looks in glass on the unit or looks at her reflection in the TV and then pretends (badly) that she doesn’t know who her character is and strings it out for ages. I’ve hidden this game away for the time being as one day it will be quite fun.

Rubbish Weather

The weather has been pretty pants this week with lots of rain and wind.

My biggest is going to turn eighteen next month.

Eighteen years old!

I thought looking after a baby was difficult, but sorry to say it but having a teenager is way harder. All those hormones and teenage mood swings.

World Book Day

It was World Book Day on Thursday and having just watched Alice Through the Looking Glass we thought Isabelle would like to dress up as Alice. However, she opted for the Queen of Hearts so she could say ‘Awf with her head!!’.

Saturday was Rainbows morning which wasn’t as fun as she thought it was going to be.¬† Her friend wasn’t there so she was a bit reluctant to stay. We should have made the most of having daddy home with us this weekend, but as I’ve been so tired and achy I’ve been a bit of a hermit this weekend.

Getting Outdoors

We did get out with the dog today and Isabelle had a really good time jumping in all of the puddles. Charlie (the dog) didn’t look too thrilled as he’s a bit of a wuss when it comes to water.

Isabelle was soaked inside her wellies and everything but she had a good time, and they will dry.

World Book Day

This is our FIRST World Book Day! (it’s the 3rd March if you didn’t know).

As this is Isabelle’s first year at school we have yet to partake in this school event, and as earlier this year they had superhero day and there were some impressive costumes the pressure is on.

I wanted to base this on Isabelle’s favourite book (or one of) not which costume was the easiest to make/obtain.

So our favourite books at the moment are:

The Scarecrows Wedding
Stickman
Trixie Ten
Winnie the Witch (ANY)
Superworm
The Princess and the Wizard
I don’t want to go to bed

So I was thinking that the easiest option would be The Little Princess which would consist of a white nightly and a crown or Winnie the Witch would be quite an easy option as well. There’a a fantastic Stickman costume which you can see on the Pinterest board, but I’m not sure that I could convince Isabelle to wear it. I would like to make one, but there isn’t much time with Isabelle currently being ill, work and general life.

As with all my crafty projects I always take to trusty old Pinterest (what did we do before).

I’d love to know what characters you’re dressing your kids as.

Either pop us an email to mail@babynotincluded.co.uk and we’ll have a little post with all the pics, pop a pick on our Facebook page or add a link to your pinterest account so we can have a look.

We’ve also set up a World Book Day Pinterest Board if you need some ideas as well.

Follow babynotincluded’s board World Book Day on Pinterest.

I’ll share a little pic of Isabelle once she’s decided which character she want to be.
