New school routine and pushchair update

So i have been a bit awol, with 6 weeks holidays and then school runs to get used to i had a bit of a break.

Amy started full time school September, was looking forward to the dinnertime school run being dropped. Finally have a full school day to do things! I couldn’t wait to do loads of shopping, but this has yet to happen.
Jess isn’t the best toddler in a pushchair at the moment. I need to bribe her with things just to stay in. This is a very sad stage for pramoholic like myself! It means that no pushchairs in the household is getting closer…How will i cope?! Where do i put all my shopping?!
I still like to see what’s happening with Stokke pushchairs. Even though i sold my pink V3 a few months ago now. If you like Stokke and haven’t noticed already they have some lovely new textile colours this year and winter kits, my favorite being the beige melange! Wish they had that when i had my 2 V3 pushchairs. So once pushchair stage is over i will be still looking at them all, feeling sad i can no longer try any.

So as you all know i got myself (Jessica) a Bugaboo Bee+ in place of the Xplory. I like it, but miss my Stokke Xplory still. I have my praticality head on for the Bugaboo. Folds in one piece, which i have to say is very easy! Moving the seat from parent to forward facing is easy too, once you know how. I did stand puzzled as to how to do it, so has to youtube a video. I still have Jess parent facing, i missed her when i had her parent facing plus she gets out without me knowing forward facing, i only know when all of a sudden a Jess pops her head out and the pushchair gets light. So parent facing means i can try as much as possible to keep her in. The only downside is the fact there is no foot rest, which means we have dangling legs. Well we would if Jess sat like that, instead she favors having both legs hanging over the frame bars until i notice as kicking people as we go by isn’t the greatest. I will give more of an update on the pushchair as i now have a pink hood/organiser and cup holder since last pictures. Any excuse for a pushchair post with pictures!

Getting back to the school runs, with having both at school it confused me as to who i would drop off first and pick up first. Decided Thomas gets dropped off first, as with him i stand on playground and watch him go in. Amy i walk in and wait for her to do her name before saying goodbye. Pick up I have tried both first and can’t yet decide which is best.

So having a full school day means you get loads done? I did think this, but so far i don’t seem to be getting as much as i would like done. We move next month to a new posting and so i have been trying to de clutter and tidy. I have done 2 tip runs and yet still seem to have ALOT of ‘stuff’ in the house with not much sorting out yet. Housework gets thrown in, in between tidying, shopping,errands and everything else that gets done. Jess seems to miss a play mate. Her and Amy don’t get on as much as you would think 2 girls would but she enjoyed the company of another child. So i think we will be paying for day nursery one day a week for her when we move.

Amy turns 5 on Sunday which means i need to make a Birthday Cake. It is Smurf related, as the kids love Smurfs! I think it may be a hard one to do, have calculated 7/8 sponge layers for it, so alot of cooking! There will be a post on the cake once done, and half eaten!
