{The Ordinary Moments} #14 DIY Softplay

Life has been upside down lately – anyone who has had work done on their house, knows it is disruptive, and manic, but even more so with three little people trying to live amongst the chaos.

Ollie has really struggled with seeing the kitchen ripped out, and all our stuff disappearing – he has got quite confused, and has gone back to waking during the night, and being very hard work during the day. My mum said it mirrors the reaction that I had to us moving house when I was little. I suppose to their little brains, everything is changing and it must be hard to understand.

We have had a ridiculous amount of deliveries of cupboards, sinks and worktops and as a result a large amount of packaging and cardboard to recycle.

The other day, when our new ceramic sink was delivered, it came in a huge box, full of these blue polystyrene pellets – the boys thought it was hilarious to jump in the box – and so we had an at home DIY Softplay. It kept them amused for a good chunk of time, and they thought it was hilarious.

Side note: I may have got into trouble with Ell when they got the box back open that evening, ripping it in the process, whilst I was getting the washing in, and the pellets went EVERYWHERE! Oops.

I am excited for life to slowly return to normal, although we are by no means finished – all the upheaval will be totally worth it, as the new kitchen  is looking amazing. I love these photos of my mad boys – its is so lovely to see them growing closer as Mason gets older – and although they can be mischvious, you could forgive these cheesy grins anything right?!
