The Joys of Sharing my Daughter

My daughter is much like I was as a young child, easy to be around and most anyone will take her. The boys, they only get taken by their Dad because after all him and I raised ‘em so we know how to deal with them. They are a joy too, but my family is just used to girls and the family that may know how to take the boys are either too far away or simply not up for an overnight with high energy boys.

The daughter though, is only super high energy when around her brothers. Alone, she is your average ten year old girl who loves being spoiled by her Great Grandmother or anyone for that matter. Girls just love that attention. So not only do I share my daughter with her Dad; two days a week and every other weekend, but I also share Miss Ki with Great Grammy aka Grena {my grandmother}.

The joy is that Ki loves spending time at Grena’s, it’s great for both of them to have a strong relationship and Ki gets to ride Daisy {Grena’s horse}. I am scared of horses, they are beautiful animals but just a tad too big for me and I am fearful. Ki is not fearful, she loves horses so much and this past week all I got to hear about is just how excited she is to be able to ride Daisy and get up, get dressed and go spend time with the horses with my Gram’s Australian Shepard at her heels.

Ki loves time spent at Grena’s, even though she loves being home too, it gives her some space from the double trouble boy team and allows her to enjoy some much needed girl time. So today is Sunday, and Ki will return and I can not wait to hear all about her wonderful weekend with her Grena.

playmobil 4As you can see in the two above pictures the Playmobil 1.2.3 Large Zoo has a lot of accessories that come with it. Unlike other products I loved very much, this set kept both of my sons busy without having to share anything, which meant more time for Mama to enjoy laughter and smiles with the occasional “neigh” in the back ground. My sons enjoyed setting up for the horses to be in their pens. Baby K all of a sudden has a huge interest in babies and so he had fun putting the people together and placing the baby in the stroller while pushing it around saying “baby baby” over and over again.

Playmobil 2The Playmobil 1.2.3 Large Zoo has been a hit in my household and is something that is kept inĀ  my living room so that the boys don’t lose all of the pieces. My sons will be 2 and 4 in August and enjoy playing with this set on a daily basis! Even sissy, Mama and Daddy get in on the fun so it’s an awesome product to not only encourage children learning and using imagination but it’s a great way to interact as a family with lots of smiles!

Last but not least I will leave you with the last photo I took while the boys were checking this product out for the first time …
