It’s The Little Things Linky 9/52 – Linky Party

It’s Tuesday again, the sun has been shining, it’s very nearly spring and I’m all about the little things this week so I’m looking forward to writing this post. If you haven’t been here before, every Tuesday Jodie from Dear Little Daisy and I share all the little things that have been making us smile over the week, and invite lots of other lovely bloggers to do the same.

I’ve been feeling really poorly for most of this week so I’ve been clinging on to all the tiny things that have been keeping me going, so I’ve got a lot this week!

It’s The Little Things

  • New pyjamas! This week both Dil and I managed to get some new pjs and I’m not sure who’s more pleased! The minute we got home Dil said “can we go to bed now?” just so he could put his on haha. He can’t bear to take them off, and he’s even been wearing them under his clothes…luckily he got quite a few new pairs so I’ve just got them all on a constant wash cycle!
  • Party rings. If you’re an allergy parent you’ll probably know exactly what I mean. We’ve started the first step on the soya ladder, which means we are testing Dil’s tolerance/to see if he’s outgrown his soya allergy. We are taking it slow but over the past few weeks he’s had a WHOLE PACK (!!) of party rings and seems to be tolerating them well. This opens up soooo many more doors for him so I’m really really excited.
  • Getting outside. We’ve done pretty well all winter to be outside as much as possible, but now the sun is shining it’s much more enjoyable to be out there. We visited a local national trust property this week and looking forward to discovering lots more nearby gems.
  • Holding hands. Lately Dilan is really into holding my hand when we are out and about and it really makes me smile when he grips my hand tightly.
  • Small parenting wins. I don’t really buy into any of the terrible two/threeanger type stuff but parenting definitely gets trickier as they get older, so I’ll take my wins whenever I can get them. After a little ‘debate’ about whether or not Dil should get in the car like I’d asked him to he grabbed my face and said “I’m so sorry for shouting at you Mummy”, and it melted my heart. I haven’t been at my best this week with feeling so unwell and I get things wrong but I always try to apologise to him when I do. I’m so glad he’s picked up on that and is able to apologise so genuinely when he wants to. It was such a lovely little moment for me.
  • Memories. Some really special memories popped up in my “on this day” thing this week, like the photos below. I really treasure these pictures; they are so magical and take me straight back to that beautiful day.

    Aw how cute when he said he was sorry for shouting at you! And let’s hope his soya intolerance has gone… Thanks for hosting #itsthelittlethingslinky

    Aw, so lovely that Dil apologised to you like that! I love when little moments like that happen. He has obviously learned well! Love getting new pyjamas. So sweet that he wanted to go to bed straight away! Thanks for hosting lovely. x

    You can’t beat new pyjamas!
    Wow, I bet you are excited about what comes next with Dil’s allergy. Small steps but fingers crossed.
    I was of the same opinion of the ‘terrible twos’ Reuben we seemed to breeze it but he has become more challenging as a three year old. I have openly called him a three-nager, but at the same time I do understand that he is going through a stage that he probably doesn’t understand. At one point we all became so very shouty, yet telling him not to shout. I really had to take a step back at look at me, of course he was going to shout if I was shouting. So now we have a no shouting household, we don’t really do time outs but we do have quiet times so he can calm down if he is angry. It seems to work, but there are obviously some moments that are not great. What a learning curve! #itsthelittlethingslinky

    I know what the not feeling well is like. We seem to constantly ill in our house. Still, finding the little things really cheers things up. You’ve inspired me to go and buy new pjs.
