|Moving house with a 3 year old!|
We now have a house filled with boxes and because of this I have been getting Max involved. He has his own boxes to pack. We have been getting smaller boxes for Max to pack away his hot wheels in, medium boxes to pack away books - which didn't quite go according to plan as for every 1 book we packed he wanted to keep out 5! They are still out at the moment, and I don’t know whether to try again or just to pack them when he’s not around.
Finally, we have some large boxes for the teddies – and as with the books, hardly any teddies get packed away, apparently they all need to be on the bed (they used to live on the wardrobe…..). I've been sneaking a teddy out here and there using them as padding in other boxes.
So far so good, but we have only just touched the surfaced.I had planned to put Max in nursery the day of the actual move... but we're moving on a Saturday now, and as much as I want him involved, I don’t think I can cope with keeping an eye on him, moving, the dog and any last minute mishaps, so we're going to go round grandma's house ;-)
I plan to show the house to Max again now we know for definite
we have it, and to discus with him what will go where in his new Spider-man room. I've been pinning ideas away on Pinterest so
may show him those too….. maybe….the boy can shop like his mamma so maybe not…..

So for a little boy who loves his routine this can be one big upheaval for him or he’ll take it all in his stride and show me once more I worry over nothing.
Right, I'm off to go find some blogs on ‘moving with toddlers’.
