1. I absolutely love this! I don’t drive so we find most of our fun in the local area – parks, walks, etc, and the littles never complain xx ps I don’t bathe them daily either, nothing wrong with a quick wipe bath 😉 xx

  2. I completely agree. My kids are lucky that they have been on a few lovely days out but most days we are just at the park or in the woods. Nothing wrong with a good old bit of dirt either. Sarah #WhateverTheWeather

  3. Thank you for writing this! Guilt is something that I am constantly battling and sometimes I am winning and sometimes I am not. This makes me feel okay that we are not going anywhere but we are spending time together.

    I dont bathe Sebastian everyday too haha… I just use wet tissue to clean him at nights. And my mother would always tell me to clean his face as its always mucky when she would see photos of him!


  4. Absolutely! Fresh air, some mud, and permission to run around and play is exactly what childhood is about. My fondest childhood memories are those spent in campsites or on the beach just being me. Expensive holidays are wonderful, but you can’t beat just spending time as a family outdoors. Perfect.

  5. I love this post, it’s so true. The best days are those like today, where we’ve spent time with family in the garden. I love seeing families online just doing normal stuff, not just the instagram-ready pics #whatevertheweather

  6. I agree- it’s all amount quality time and experiences. I feel sad that many people feel the pressure that they need to spend money on someone to show their love. I disagree with this strongly. We live in a commercial world where we are encouraged to buy buy buy as a way of proving something.

    I was brought up in a very similar way to your children; out at fist light, home at dark, covered in mud!
