The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

Holding onto the apron strings

Posted on


Sometimes we review on our blog, occasionally we promote and quite frequently we talk about life. This is one of those times!
Our schools finished for half term last week and given that mommy frog maybe *too* pregnant to go anywhere in the summer holidays, there was a last minute decision to go away for bank holiday weekend, so that 6 year old had a little holiday.
I am quite sure that I expect too much of myself, almost all of the time but sometimes when I want to take on the world, I sit and have a conversation with my little princess and remember that she is my world, so this break was all about her!
After browsing through countless web pages and holiday brochure books, we decided on a good old fashioned holiday park. We looked at the "designer" holidays, the "quirky" alternative breaks but at the end of the day, all children want is to play and spend time with you. So we packed up our bags (and some friends too) and off we went.
The weekend has been filled with laughter and despite the lure of the arcade games, it was the classic dancing like a lunatic to vintage party tunes that amused us the most.
Little lady wanted to be independant and I have to accept that she is not a baby anymore and even with another one on the way, she will always be a baby to me. I try to be the best parent I can and I know that I cant protect her from everything but I will give it a damn good do! (what was that I said about not expecting too much of myself?)
I used to curse my own mother for holding onto the apron strings too long with my brother and I but we are still a close knit family and no matter how long or short the apron strings, thats all that matters isnt it?
