|Going down the slide without any trousers on- standard Elijah behaviour|
Playing in the garden, sounds so fun, so easy! You are SO wrong! It requires much planning and I wish it was just a case of lobbing him outside with some chalk. You would think as you are at home it is a familiar place, with food, toys and nappies on tap it would be great. However, it can also be bloody stressful here is why;
1. The minute I get the hat and sun cream out Elijah throws a hissy fit and runs away.

The weekend rolls in, with the sunshine still present (that’s got to be a new record? 4 days in a row!) I have even shaved my legs and got last year’s flip flops out! The factor 50 has been purchased. The battle between me, Elijah and the sun hat has been raging on. We decide as the fair is in town it’s the perfect way to spend Saturday Afternoon (and daddy’s money). I have bundled Elijah in the pram, packed the reins and go to meet our play date for the afternoon. I mean what could possible go wrong? Two toddlers, one (teething) 7 month old and three adults? Surely the odds are in our favour?

|They look so innocent... right?|
|Literally having the time of their lives|
|He doesn't normally like ice cream, unless it's mine.|
So there we have it, the adventures that this NICU Mum, her toddler and the kitchen scissors had last weekend.
P.S in case you were wondering since coming to write this post the sun has now disappeared and it has rained all day. That was the Great British Summer of 2016. I am off to put the flip flops and jelly shoes back in the cupboard for next year. Bloody annoying when I have spent a small fortune on factor 50 sun cream for Elijah! Grrrr.
