This week I'm finding it so very hard to motivate the girls. They are happy to spend hours and hours at a time , quite possibly days at a time sat in front of screens, whether that be t.v , wii console or computers and then theres there phones as well.
I need to remember that these are all educational tools .....keep remembering that...
I find it so worrying that Gypsie has been spending a lot of time upstairs on the computer away from the rest of the family, but on asking her if shes ok i always get a yes .I guess she is happy to be in her own company .But I'm still trying to make her aware that we miss her being involved in what we are doing.
On shove Tuesday we discussed what we were giving up for lent. The four youngest are not giving up anything .I'm giving up Coffee and out of solidarity and support Jasmine has said she will do too. Its hard going , iv been a very stressed mummy at times to day and find myself cleaning to take my mind off of reaching for that lovely rich brown liquid I'm obviously so addicted too. I had printed of some pancake pictures a wordserch and such like but no one wanted to do those and i spent all afternoon helping jas make a patchwork cushion . Cute huh!
We have set ourselfs the challange of making her a patch work duvet cover and pillow case .
That evening after dinner i made those who wanted them pancakes and inspired by one of her friends ,Jasmine and i had melted cream egg as our filing!
After more pancakes for a certain little person,Ash Wednesday was spent sewing seeds and sewing a purse.
