I have a 3.8 years old and a non walking, crawling, eats stones and other crap 15 month old and I'm finding this school holiday a bit daunting. We are a week in and feeling the strain already! We don't have actual holiday to look forward as we holidayed during term time and my OH is not taking any time off so it's just me and a kids! Arghhhh. Soft play is a no go on our own. My son will not go around a soft play his own, I have to trundle through with him which isn't possible whilst holding on to a 15 month old who won't walk. Similar story with a park. I struggle to give my son proper attention with my daughter around. We can't sit and play play dough like he likes to do as my daughter will just sit and eat the stuff, she'll eat paint too and this subsequently kicks off a tantrum from my son. We had huge problems with playing in the sand bit yesturday - she ate it and then my son poured a spade load over her head. I'd rather get them out but it feels they are both at such a difficult age. My son just is not as independent as other 3 year olds I see who'll run off around a park/soft play on their own happily and my daughter requires a lot of me too. Sob. 7 weeks until preschool!
