Word Of The Week – Summer!

Our word of the week this week had to be


as Ethan’s summer holiday officially started on Wednesday.

I was always worried about how Ethan would cope with his break from routine but I was looking forward to having him home.

Lets just say the reality of the summer holiday has brought us down to earth with a massive bump!

Ethan doesn’t know if he is coming or going, even with the holiday planner that I had made for him. There have been tears and meltdowns. Little E is also getting in on the crying act and is crying when she can’t have things that her brother has, mostly food!

Wednesday was a long day as we all adjusted to the change. I have a plan to keep Ethan busy and we are meant to be out and about today, if the weather doesn’t put a stop to it.

I just really hope Ethan settles and finds the summer holidays easier, and I really hope our weeks aren’t just about getting from one meltdown to the other!

  1. Oh that’s a ‘yeah’ and a ‘not-so- yeah’ to the start of your summer holidays. Routine is important, but at the same time it’s nice to have a break from it all and just let the routine slide. I hope you have better luck with your Holiday Planner chart next week and the weather holds!

    Goodluck with yours. Hopefully it will get better as the time pass =)
