Sometimes I'm really glad when we don't have to ‘BE' anywhere on a weekend. It was Mother's Day here but i was happy just to be able to potter around inside and also get outside with the girls in between rain showers.
There were no expectations of grand gestures…it was the simple joys that i remember from this Mother's Day weekend.
I can't remember…when does that stage finish? Just between us I'm a little over it now !
The girls' favourite activity this weekend was also the simplest! I found this silicone bath mat in our $2 shop and knew it was just the perfect for their current obsession with marbles!
I was really pleased with how well the activity kept Ruby's interest as many fine motor activities don't interest her for long as she has difficulty sitting and concentrating for the length of time required and can get frustrated very easily.
Picking up the marbles and placing them into the holes was a simple, repetitive action that she seemed to find calming and it really worked her fine motor muscles and grip.
This is a great idea! I think my twinners would love this, too 😉
A very happy belated mother’s day to you, that flower picked just for you looks like an extra special one with Ruby smiling sweetly:) What a clever marble idea, you will be a fantastic family day care provide Jode. x

Happy Belated Mother’s Day to one terrific mom! Don’t you love the homemade gifts and cards? They are truly the best!
Wow! This looks like a lot of fun. We’ve done this with a little mat and my kids loved it. I’m just imagining how much alone time this would give me. Thanks! Hannah @paint on the ceiling
