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.
