Confessions of a summer parent...The summer when rain reigned!

Summertime...birds singing, bees buzzing, long relaxing summer days with children playing happily in the sunshine. That's what happens in summer, right? WRONG! Being a parent is tough at times and even more so when there's a six week long stretch of summer holidays ahead of you.....

It's your job to keep the kids busy and occupied whilst still somehow getting through your own ever-growing 'to-do' list. 

But hey, at least it's summer. The kids can play outdoors in the garden whilst you get on with your jobs...preparing dinner, washing up, a spot of housework or catching up on emails. WRONG AGAIN.... We have to rely on the great British weather during school summer holidays and that can often mean a stretch of long RAINY days. What then? 

Well here's my summer parent confession, caught on camera in this video....
So as much as I'd like to pretend that I'm the perfect parent and that we spend any rainy summer days cooking together, reading stories, or doing crafts, the truth is that it isn't always like that and sometimes it's ok to do what you have to do to get a little break from the kids and restore your sanity to enjoy #TheGoodStuff together the rest of the time. 

This post is an entry for BritMums Confessions of a Summer Parent Challenge, sponsored by Anchor. Anchor kindly sent me a voucher for a pack of Anchor spreadable and a pack of Anchor cheddar. All opinions are my own. Find out more about the challenge here.
