How are you spending your maternity leave this summer? 

This summer I'm on maternity leave. Obviously we are hoping for some sunshine!

Now that I've a daughter in school summer feels so much more exciting. I long to give her the same feelings I had of long summers with plenty of sun. So we will be packing our BabyMule change bag ready for our days out.

This year also sees my last stint of maternity leave come to an end. Before I go back to the stress of how to manage a work load around the children I'll have some time to ensure they each get some focus. Days out will be planned in advance and I'm hoping the weather holds out for us.

We've planned trips to the beach, picnics in the park and maybe we will head to museums in the big smoke. Who knows. The world is our oyster and we are going to make the most of it.

I have started to think about weaning on the go and how much mess my little one will make. Will he be fussy like his sister or try everything like his big brother. Will we spend the summer trying out new places to eat?

Maternity leave is, for me, an allocated time to be just mum and as it slowly dwindles away from me I'm hoping that I won't waste these last few precious moments because by the end of the summer weaning will have started and my bed space will start to be just that again...mine.

So how will you be spending your maternity leave and this summer?
