Today we did that thing where one of us spent the day with one child and the other with the other.
It's a simple thing to do. Makes them feel really special. And allows you to go and have some fun as a twosome.
The activities were decided by each child. I got to go swimming. Becky was treated to a pyjama day and a film snuggled up on the sofa.
Everything is easier when there are only two of you. It's cheaper for a start. Quicker to get out of the house. And you get to spoil them a bit more than usual as there's no sibling moaning or bickering with the other one.
We went swimming in Keighley where there was a slide and everything. Then on to McDonald's in Shipley for a burger (plenty of don't tell mummy moments). Then onto the park for a hot chocolate, via a newsagent for some Tic Tacs. Then as luck would have it Amelie bumped into her mates so got to run around with them too.
It was ace. Such a simple idea. And a lovely change to the usual weekend routine.
If you've got two and you've not done the same I heartedly recommend it.
