Welcome back to my weekly diary post of my Fridays with Kipper. Each week I document our adventures on the run up to him starting school. You can find the series here – Our Fridays.

A Year of Mudpie Fridays – Week 5

I am pretty fed up with all the rain we seem to be having and from what I am hearing there are no plans for it to disappear. Which means I better think of some things to do inside. Today we did something I try to avoid on a Friday which is go to a blogging event. Only because I feel bad that it means Kipper and I don’t get much one on one time. However this was an important one so I made an exception.

Plus they had kids entertainers so he had a brilliant time. I was a little worried he maybe a bit clingy but as soon as he saw the bubbles he was off. He happily played with the other children giving me a little chance to catch up with some other bloggers. Before capturing a couple of photos of him.

It was a big week this week as he got his pre school jabs and the online forms opened for school nominations. I have not quite brought myself to do it yet although I will probably do it this weekend. I don’t want to leave it too long. Tonight at bedtime he struggled to drop off, probably after all the excitement and he wanted me to sit with him. Which I did for over an hour until he finally did…. hoping that is not going to become a regular occurrence. Although he was pretty adamant that he was joining me in my bed tonight.

  1. The conservatory looks beautiful, the perfect place to sit and think and be calm!

  2. My kids are age 11, 18, 21, and 24, and I miss the innocence and simplicity of their childhood. Such a fun time in their lives. It’s nice to relive those days through a blog like yours. Thank you!

  3. Another gorgeous photo of Kipper. Hope the bloggers’ event was successful for you.

    When he’s a bit older i hope he gets to read your blog about him. This is a nice way to create fond memories of your adorable kiddo.

    And oh i hope the blog conference went well.

  5. Haha! Was entertained reading this. Bubbles is key. lol! Even I would be entertained with that hehe. Anyways, you got an adorable kid there.

  6. Those years of childhood are so precious. When my kids were that age, I always think it will be better if they grow up already. Now I miss these ages honestly.

  7. My son is three and so we are also looking for schools. It’s annoying that the town where we live all schools are over subscribed so it’s a little worrying as due to a weird border we’re not in that catchment area. Fingers crossed we can get him somewhere nearby where he will be happy!
    Where was the blogger event out of interest. I live in Sussex and would be interested in attending more blogger events in the future.

  8. That is so nice, that he could come with you and play a little bit with other kids.
    Thankfully we do not always have to wait an hour next to the kids bed.
    Too bad they don’t plan these days before hand.

  9. The rains are driving me crazy too! I just can’t wait wait to be done with the rain.
    anyways I love your content choice, it’s a beautiful memories you’re creating with your son.

  10. You are saying it is constant rain there because Atlanta seemed like it was going through a drought. Happy you went to a blogger event!

  11. LIttle sweetie pie. I remember when my little one wanted to sleep in bed with us. Those days are long gone now, so the truth is clear in ‘enjoy it while you can.’ They do grow up very fast.

    Kids & bubbles are a perfect mix whenever there’s an event with kids I always recommend bubbles they can entertain their-selves for hours it seems!
