Well, as you all know it’s been pretty darn hot this week. Some of us love it some of us hate it. Me, I do love having beautiful blue skies and the sunshine but the humidity, and the fact it does not cool down at night is the hardest bit.
Trying to dress accordingly is difficult and keeping the babies cool too and out of the sun. Clark refuses to wear a hat which is difficult as he very fair like me and prone to burn and sunstroke. Nearly all week he’s been plastered in sun cream also on his head. He’s an outside boy so its even harder to keep him in.
I have tried a few things to keep them cool-er: paddling pool, cold lollies, letting Clark run around without nappy on and his favourite thing was the washing up bowl full of water and bubbles! Played with it for ages whilst Cain and I sat in shade watching on. Amazing what that bowl of water did for him with his stacking cups and mega blocks.
Night-time has been very warm but our boys have done well throughout the week. Still settled ok and slept until normal times. Both their bedrooms were 31 degrees on Wednesday night, hottest I’ve ever known it. Again, to keep cooler both have a fan in there rooms and not dressed in much other than nappy and vests or shorts for Clark. We racked our brains to think of how else we could cool the rooms but nothing really worked. I’m very thankful they slept as we did not!! Especially Friday night with a big storm hovering around. I was dreading it if they woke up to hear big claps of thunder but thankfully they did great.
I do hope you found a way to keep cool too or if you did find a trick please share it with us.
Enjoy more sunshine ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️
