weekend wanderings.....

Well we had a really lovely weekend walking in the woods and spending time together but as happy and joyful as it looks to be honest I'm struggling to deal with charlies unwillingness to go anywhere. At the moment all he wants to do is play with his cars and trains, he totally loses himself in his own world making up his little stories and its wonderful to see him using such a brilliant imagination but when it comes to getting shoes on and going out he has a crying fit and runs off. I dread trying to go anywhere because he just gets so upset and even when we set of and are on our way he can remain upset the whole time. I'm managing to stay reasonably calm but I really do have to make a conscious effort to remind myself to do so.





This is quite possibly my favourite place ever, Hardcastle Craggs, as soon as I get here I feel so peaceful.

what a peaceful spot, definately a great place to recharge your energy. Boys are odd, I would try and relish the times when he is lost in his own world, they grow out of these too soon. My 9 yr old still hates getting ready to go out, stay calm and gentle bribing helps x

Beautiful photos as always. I also find that if James is engrossed in something there is no way he wants to go anywhere. Unless it is really urgent, I tend to put it off and let him get on with the game. Or, I ask him to put some of his diggers in a special bag (actually the bag that held one of our folding camp chairs) and take them along with us.
Lots of love xxx

Cain very much lives in the moment too. No amount of gentle persuasion will encourage him away from his current activity without some sort of meltdown. But then those moments he is enjoying will get shorter as he gets older and I so hate preventing him from living them right now. As a mama to older ones I'm sure you know that feeling. XX
