A slow summer with the kids

a slow summer 40 simple ideas, slow parenting blog on my x

This summer, I have nothing special on the program, nothing planned. With everything we've been through over the past year, job loss for my boyfriend and I, unexpected expenses and me starting a small business, let's just say this is clearly not our most successful year. So no travel, nor many outings, only this list of little pleasures.

I plan to live by our whims, watch the temperature in the morning and take inspiration from it for the day and I think it will be a wonderful summer.
