Little Man’s Playtime

My children get on very well together, which is lovely to see, and a relief for me! They’ll happily play together, or alongside each other, comfortable in each other’s company. It means that I can let the pair of them get on with it, and create their own mayhem and chaos, accompanied by the sounds of delighted giggles.

But, sometimes, it’s nice for them to have a bit of time without the other. To have the run of the playroom and all of the wonders that it encases..

Little Man Playing

Boo goes to pre-school for a couple of days a week. It gives Little Man and I a little bit of time together, and I like to let him choose the activities. I find it fascinating to see what he opts for, and to watch his delight in exploring. It amazes me how quickly he is developing. I feel like he was a tiny baby a month or two ago, and yet here he is running from one toy to the next and bringing it over to me to open up and play with him. He likes to get himself seated properly at his table to enjoy the fun, and just so you know, the four pictures taken above were taken within 5 minutes, no exaggeration, and there was also some climbing thrown into that 5 minutes, not photographed as I was busy supervising it! He rushes around, like any toddler would, I think, when given the run of a playroom without a big sister getting in his way…!

It’s a total joy to see, moments that I treasure, and that I suspect Little Man does, too.

  1. So wonderful getting quality time together like this – love the photos, just fabulous. I can imagine him climbing everything too, POD used to be on the table within seconds! We only have Mondays together during the week so we’re checking out a farm today. Lovely post Jocelyn, thanks for sharing #whatsthestory

    1. Thank you. It is lovely to have this time, however climby he may get! Hope you had fun at the farm 🙂 Thanks for hosting x

    1. He was very happy! I love the play-room – there is not a single toy or book of theirs in our living room – success!

  2. Gorgeous photos, I also definitely think it is good for them to have one on one time without each other, although my girls get on so well. At the moment Mads goes to nursery twice a week and LL is settling in, but different days, meaning that I get one on one time with each of them. I treasure it and it also makes me wonder why i found just one child hard. 😉 x

    1. Thank you. Yes, it’s nice to just concentrate on each of them alone sometimes, as they deserve that attention and it lets me really enjoy them, and I’m sure they like it, too. That said, I don’t think anything makes me happier than the sounds of fits of giggles coming from them both when they’re playing together 🙂 Thanks for hosting x

  3. Oh that’s so lovely – I love getting a little one on one time with my girls, it just seems to happen so rarely at the moment that it’s all the more treasured!

    1. Thank you. I’m thinking it’ll get a lot harder for me to have one-on-one time with my daughter when she starts school in September, though Little Man will get loads then! I’ll need to make a real effort to do this with her, too x

  4. ah what lovely shots, i know my kids love to be on their own with either me or the OH, they crave it actually a lot. i think when they are used to being in such a large number they love those times when they are one to one!

    1. Ah, yes I can imagine they’d love it, being part of a lovely, big family. It’s nice for us parents, too, I think, though it can be challenging to fit in, I’d guess?! Thank you x
