Summer survival

As we near towards the end of August I feel the need to ask how all you parents are holding up?

Social media has been awash with anxious, frustrated, tired parents at the end of their summer holiday tether.

I don’t feel like that myself but I know that lots of people do. I personally really look forward to a different kind of routine over the summer holidays and more time being together and I think it’s something that is very much needed.

That’s not to say that I don’t understand the juggle that summer holidays can bring for many parents, of course I do.

Modern parenting is a constant juggle and something we are familiar with, but the summer holidays can increase that even further.

Often we are trapped between the necessity of working and the desire to spend time as a family and make memories. We are constantly trying to stretch the days out to cram everything in.

  • What a great competition. We have actually been ok (although my bank balance definitely took a hit!) this summer it has gone so fast!!! #sharewithme

  • What a fab competition. I love the holidays, we haven’t been able to do as many trips as I had hoped but that doesn’t matter, the kids are getting hyper this week though so definitely time to go back to school #sharewithme

  • I was looking forward to the holidays to begin with, but mum has been really tight, so not managed to do the things I was hoping we would do. But I am looking forward to next week, so we can get back into a routine and I can get my house tidied

  • I’m with you. This summer has been perfect for us in so many ways and while our little girl is raring to get back to school and showing signs of boredom, I’m loving the different pace of life that the holidays bring. Thanks for hosting #sharewithme

  • I love your photos! I’m really looking forward to getting Mia back into her Preschool routine as she has really missed being there and its been a struggle keeping her occupied everyday! Having said that, I have enjoyed our time together even though I’m home with her all the time, we have had some great trips and my partner has time off to spend with Mia too :)


  • The holidays always start with a collective groan of “it’s so long, how will we cope?” yet to be honest I find the time just flies by and as you say it is so great to have the chance to hang out as a family and spend some quality time together. Mine are now back at school and whilst I miss them I am loving some me time too! #sharewithme

  • I agree with you, I look forward to a completely different routine throughout the summer holidays and love the fact that we do things that we can’t normally do as a family because I am at university. Yes we go bed late, we eat takeaways, we go to the zoo and swimming and lots of different parks! I love it :) Love your photos #sharewithme
