Starting Year 4 – She’s too small!

Annabelle went back to school today where she began her journey into year 4. I can’t describe just how excited she was to return. In fact I would go as far as saying that I’ve never seen her move so fast.

The Kids Take Over – Annabelle – Week 4

Each week I am handing over my blog to the kids to have their say and let you know whats going on with them. I have told them they can be completely honest and if I have annoyed them or if something has upset them then to just go for it and type how they feel. I figured this way you guys can get to know their personalities and more about who they are as each one of them is completely different.

Annabelle takes over week 4

So we’ve done a lot this week like go to our Uncle and Auntie’s house and been swimming I loved this week so much.

As I said we went to our Uncle and Auntie’s house and did lots of cool things there. We went to sir Isaac newton’s birthplace. We did experiments that Isaac newton did and one was really cool ,you had to look at a dot and close your left eye and the X by it would disappear when you moved the paper towards you. We also went to a park with a splash zone and got drenched by a big splash on one of the pieces of equipment.😅 The next day we went out to buy my birthday presents, I got £30 to buy them. I got lots of gifts and they’re all in the picture below.🤗

I got a lot of presents as I said, and I bet you guessed that the recorder made mom love me😉

Then me and Ellie made our own lip balms while the boys were doing their own kit. We made lip balms, smelly jellies and homemade perfumes. My lip balm smelt like blueberries and cherries and Ellie’s smelt like lavender and cherries. We made shower jellies (which is weird because Ellie’s nickname is jelly) and a room fragrance out of expanding crystals which was scented as lavender. The last night of it we watched minions, it was Ellie’s first time but i’d already watched it before. We had lots of sweets and cake while we were watching it. We left on the Tuesday. The day after we went swimming and had fun in the pool. This is the end of my weekly takeover this week

The Kids Take Over – Annabelle – Week 2

Each week I am handing over my blog to the kids to have their say and let you know whats going on with them. I have told them they can be completely honest and if I have annoyed them or if something has upset them then to just go for it and type how they feel. I figured this way you guys can get to know their personalities and more about who they are as each one of them is completely different. You will notice that there isn’t an Annabelle Week 1, that’s because the little monkey started writing it then gave up and forgot! haha

Annabelle week 2

Sorry I haven’t done my blog takeover last week but I have a lot to say now.
Last week we went to Shropshire fire station, Freddie was the most excited boy on earth. He got a fireman Sam activity sheet and got to do a bit of colouring in. I got a sheet but that was different it had word searches, crosswords and more.
After we went to Carding Mill valley and made massive splashes in a stream and had a lot of fun. We saw our friends Khloe, Izzy , Anna and Dion. Khloe Izzy and Dion went in the stream with us. I had a lot of fun with them especially Khloe.  Mums friend Anna gave us snacks like chocolate covered cornflakes and brownies.
The other day we went to a Gruffalo Trail and I was really excited.  We found the mouse first, then we found the fox, it was a bit harder. We followed the clues to find the snake. Also we found the owl and I was really excited when we found the Gruffalo.
Freddie’s birthday was very fun, he had tools😕  as in plastic tools I bet you thought I meant real ones didn’t you but he’s only 3.
That is my blog takeover at last  I hope you enjoy
Thank you Annabelle ( at last ) If you’ve enjoyed reading about Annabelle’s week don’t forget you can find her posts every Sunday.
On a Wednesday you will find posts from Harry
and on a Friday you will find Ellie’s posts

Annabelles first day at her new school

You will have to forgive the featured image .. I have to point out this is not how we sent her to school this is how she returned from her first day at her new school 🙂

We had a little bit of a battle to get her into the school that we wanted . The school we chosen is quite a small school and their ofsted report was mainly ‘outstanding’ so it’s quite difficult to get transferred into. However I persevered and eventually after they held a meeting we got her in! Continue reading “Annabelles first day at her new school”

The middle child

Now being a mum of 5 children means that obviously we have a middle child, and as with all families of more than 1 or 2 children there is bound to be ‘the middle child’. This child is usually known to be a little bit lost. This is thought to be because the first child is more prone to receive privileges and responsibilities and the younger child in the baby so is usually smothered with attention.

Headlice!!!!!

You know what drives me nuts about school?? bloody head lice!!!

1 day , 1 little day they’ve been back and I’ve had to go through Annabelles hair, don’t get me wrong you can’t avoid them and trust me when I say your child WILL 150% get them at some point during school life and the first time you will freak out, blame yourself, wonder if you have washed their hair enough, if your kid isnt looked after properly and think you are in fact the worst parent in the world. Let me stop you right there YOU ARE NOT! Continue reading “Headlice!!!!!”
