A Week With Us…21st August 2017-27th August 2017 

We closed our childminding business this week so that we could have some quality family time.

Even though we work from home and are with our boys everyday, we don’t get quality time with them.

While we had the chance we decided to start potty training Cohen. He’s two and a half and has been showing signs that he’s ready to start potty training. He has done, AMAZING!

We are surprised at how well he has taken to potty training. The other boys took a bit longer to crack it. Mckenzie had an hospital appointment at the ENT department for his ears. He’s been discharged. No more grommets. We managed to escape for a couple of hours and we went on a Mummy Son date to Costa for a hot chocolate.

Cameron did a Resistant Materials GCSE 2 years early and got his results this week. He only went and got himself a B . To say we are proud is an understatement.

With Harvey and Mckenzie having Sensory Differences or more commonly know as Sensory Processing Disorder, we are a member of Sensory Processing Disorder Parent Support Group North East England. Majority of school holidays they host a session at 4motion skate park in Darlington.

This week we attended one of their sessions, which my boys absolutely loved. They loved being free to whizz around on their scooters and bikes! Honestly, Harvey has my heart in my mouth with some of the stunts he does.

The Weekend

Over the weekend our boys were needing some outdoor stimulation to get them moving and burn off some energy, so we visited Preston Park, In Stockton.


The boys absolutely loved being free and able to run around. The enjoyed climbing, go to the outdoor skate park and walking along the river to see the ducks and swans.

This week has been pretty quiet for us, but it’s been great to just have our boys at home and do what they want to do.

See you all next week for another Week With Us

    FAMILY TIME is so important. That’s why I like Bank holiday, it enables us to spend a bit more time together. This Preston Park looks like a kid’s paradise.

    Potty training oh i remember it well! I have two girls, one took forever and the other took no time at all! My youngest has sensory processing disorder which is quite challenging at times. I am on a few FB support sites which are helpful. Family time is super important so it’s nice you had the option to take time out of your childcare business and spend time together 🙂

    I’ve only just came across your blog but I’m glad I have! 🙂
    Sounds like you’ve had a fab week! 5 boys as well, wow! Sounds like crazy hectic fun to me.
    Well done to your little one for cracking potty training too! I have a 2 and a half year old who is not showing he is ready for that yet. Would be great to hear some of your tips! X
