Spending quality time with your son: priceless
Exactly!Originally Posted by Johnie, post: 155159
You know toward the end of last term we actually had some parents come in to see the head asking what on earth they were going to do for 6 weeks with their children.
We live between the beach and the south downs with any number of parks and open spaces for the kids to play and none of this costs a penny.
Yes I spend money but I'm lucky that I can afford to and my boy will only be 6 once. :D
Hope you don't mind me asking Linda. How many Grandchildren do you have.Originally Posted by sunsetlakes, post: 155109

We have lots of people over. It never bothers me.how many are in ,as l can always send them home. We have a library at the end of my road and my weepy moment this week was when Lily "asked" to go and get 2 new books as she had read her two. I never thought l would see this day. She has struggled so hard with her dyslexia . She had a genuine fear of books,not as in screaming but would avoid them at all cost.
She read 2 very lower range books BUT SHE READ THEM and enjoyed them
I love seeing all the pictures of your trips and activities with him! He will truly appreciate these times when he is older. A day that passes is a day you don't get back.
That being said, I agree, thank goodness it's only one boy you are paying for...might need to take a second mortgage for a second child. ;)
