Well let me start by giving you a round of applause for making it through the first week of January after the frivolities and festivities are finished. It won’t be long before the kids are keen to get out and get busy with some activities. Sounds like a great plan to me! The kids are entertained and have the chance to catch up with some friends + parents get the opportunity to go to the shops, tidy the house, meet a friend for lunch…who am I kidding? I’ll probably scroll through Instagram in peace and quiet then maybe nap on the couch. I love spending some quality time with my kids when the routine of school + work is removed but sometimes, just sometimes, we all need a break.
Whether your kids are big or little, like to make it or move it, there’s something for them on the Mornington Peninsula these holidays!
