Is it time to ditch the pushchair?

My little boy is a charming and cheeky two year old.  He’s inquisitive and can be adventurous when the mood takes him. He occasionally has the standard toddler meltdown, although I’m grateful these rarely take place in public. So far there’s been very few throwing himself on the floor, kicking his legs, drawing attention to himself, and in turn me, incidents.

The main cause for that though is not that he’s a complete angel or that I’ve got parenting sussed. It’s because there’s a knight in shining armour or shall we say on wheels? A secure chariot. His pushchair.

Movie of the week!

A grown up (well nearly) movie of the week this time!! On a day off we managed to get the DIY done quicker than expected and with the monkey at nursery we slotted in a date to the cinema. The actual cinema! 

Star Wars has been a long favourite of hubs and he introduced me to it as Attack of the Clones was released. Back then we binged watched them before heading to the cinema and have seen each one since, and repeatedly. We had planned to see The Force Awakens at the cinema but as many parents will know going to the cinema or out at all becomes something of a military operation! So, we ended up waiting until it was shown on Sky Movies.

We were keen to see Rogue One at the cinema so when the opportunity arose we made sure we did. 

I am so happy we got the chance to see it as it was bloody ace! So ace it's my movie of the week!
