Painting has been in full swing over the last few weeks at Lumsden. The tamariki have been exploring various techniques of painting which has increased their engagement in art and also support their social and cognitive skills.

It is back to school today for us 🎉 and as fun as it was having my eldest home for 3 weeks, let’s face it....there was some time spent here in the ‘getting along’ shirt 😂👕 what are your go to survival tips for school holidays?
#mom#kids#instakids It is commonly said that let the child come...your life will change. True that!! It did.
And with 2nd child they will grow up together. Again right. But the point I am trying to make here is with the 2nd child the life changes once again drastically. Especially for working #moms With one child I continued working. I could give my entire time to him once I was back from work. With the arrival of 2nd one, I had to take an important call -whether to work or not? I was not ready to leave my children with a nanny and work for 10+ hrs a day. Also with 2 children your time and attention gets divided. Keeping all the factors in mind, I quit. I quit a high paying job, which otherwise today I could have been heading a function in media. More about my career saving it for another day. I believed Opportunities may come..but the early years with your children will never. Today am working again, of course with compromises but on my own terms. Few of you may not agree but this is what I believed in and followed my heart.
Snuggling up in bed with this one today who refuses to sleep anywhere but my chest for the first time in his little life. But after a trip to the doctors this morning diagnosed him with tonsillitis and croup it’s no wonder he’s feeling pretty needy and miserable. Still manages to laugh and smile even though he must be feeling awful. He really does have such a bright little spirit ♥️
Role play enhances a child's skill set. 🎭This means children develop their ability to broade their imagination, attention span, social interactions, communication, abstract thinking, language and their physical movement.
