Ordinary moments: Our daily walk

Possibly the most Ordinary Moment is our daily walk. Even when we are both ill, grumpy and unwilling to socialise we still,most days, go for a walk.
 As you know, if you have been reading my adventures for a while, Fred is not a good sleeper especially during the day. He will sleep in his pushchair and if I'm lucky he will stay asleep in there for up to 3 hours!
I enjoy our walks, we don't go far, or anywhere special, but it is really sweet to watch him drifting off.

 First he gets a stare on, then after 5- 10 minutes of staring he starts to long blink. Sometimes it takes a while, other times he blinks only twice before his eyelids become too heavy to open.

As I walk I listen to audio books. It is great to have some me time at the same time as looking after Fred. 
And it is guilt free - new mums dream.

  3. Audio books whilst walking is genius! Am I the only one who is a bit jealous and wishes someone would push me around in a cosy pram in the fresh air?!

    1. I am very jealous, especially when it is raining! I think it would be so nice and cosy in there.

  4. This is lovely - I have loads of photos like this too, of Toby sleeping in his pushchair. I have to use a snoozeshade now though if I want him to sleep - he won't go to sleep when there's so much to look at outside!

  5. This is beautiful. I have loved going on walks with both my girls, it's harder now my biggest girl doesn't want to go in her buggy for a long period of time. When they were little I would walk for hours and hours. x

  6. Aww he's so cute in that hat! I remember lots of long walks with my eldest but now we go at a more sedate toddler speed - it's still fun though!

  7. Lovely picture! I love taking the kids on walks too. These days our walks mostly consist of the school run, but it's a 30 minute walk each way, so I get plenty of thinking time, especially when my littlest falls asleep on the way to school in the afternoon.
