PointShoot Post #13: Little Street

In keeping with the spirit of mindfulness, linking up to Catie’s Point Shoot linky  (Diary of an Imperfect Mum) gives me an opportunity to practice adopting a ‘gratitude attitude’.
Remembering, through quick snaps taken on my phone, the things I may otherwise take for granted in my busy life, if I didn’t take a moment to stop.
It’s a chance to consider those family moments that may otherwise get lost in the fast pace of everyday life.  The photos generally aren’t posed so don’t interrupt the ebb and flow of the day.  Instead they are a record of those tender and special moments that regularly occur, between all the tears and tantrums, but can all too easily be missed.
Hopefully these posts may spur others on to keep a ‘gratitude log’ or something similar too.
It’s about seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary.

My  last ‘Point Shoot’ post was about our trip to Margate earlier in autumn.  This one is about a trip to ‘Little Street’ in Maidstone a couple of weeks ago.

The highlights:

  • We got to hang out with our really good friends and I caught up with one of my besties as the kids played happily.

 

  • The girls and I got there really early so had a very relaxed 2nd breakfast together with the pain au chocolat going down very well indeed.

 

  • As soon as the girls got into ‘Little Street’ (basically a series of spaces where little ones can dress up and role play different everyday situations) twin 1 and 2 were in their element.  They headed straight for the medical centre.   Twin 1 loved it so much she has announced she is going to be a doctor when she grows up!

  • It was lovely to watch them move confidently around the place. They spent a lot of time in the construction area, café, picnic area and the supermarket.  Twin 2 spent a lot of time being in charge of the check out!

  • I love that twin 1 and twin 2 are drawn to lots of different toys and games and don’t always gravitate to what may be perceived as more traditional girls’ toys.

 

Would your children like ‘Little Street’?  

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    I like your idea of using #PointShoot as a gratitude log. Gorgeous pics of your little girls, they look so absorbed in their play!

    This sounds like an interesting place for little ones to play and I wonder which area my girls would love the most. #PointShoot
