This week is half term. The children are off school until 31 October. It's like someone just added another ball to my juggling act.
I'm lucky to have a child minder who keeps an open slot for Sebastian during the school breaks and since she has Abigail in the afternoons it is not much trouble to also have her in the mornings.
I'm not entirely sure what parents do when they don't have a childminder. And after Abigail starts school full time next year, I'm not sure what we'll do. I'll cross that bridge then.
But I do want to spend some time with the children when they are not in school. Isn't that what half term is all about?
So now I find myself trying to juggle. Again!
