Not today thank you

Just today I was having a conversation with a friend and she mentioned how everyone (where she is) portrays motherhood to be a walk in the park when in fact it’s not. It can be really difficult. She has a 5 month old who slept through the night from 6 weeks to 3 months and then decided she’d had enough sleep and now wakes in the night.

Whether your child fights sleep, their food or are just going through their terrible two’s (which start way before two by the way), at some point I am sure all moms have felt like this (as above). Even if they won’t admit it…

I love S more than anything else in the world but he’s at the point where there is so much he wants to say and express but doesn’t have the words. Instead we get screams and crying. Some days it is exhausting. I can’t imagine what it’s like to not be able to express how I’m feeling verbally or why I can’t open draws, bang pots and climb on tables. This ofcourse is just a phase all toddlers go through and as I say with everything, this too shall pass 🙂

Today I’m not enjoying being a mammy! *Hears the shock horror mexican gasp around the world*

Yep there it is I said it out loud, I love and adore my kids and would die for them I love them so much. However today they are doing my swede right in!

Miss C is off form and I think it’s down to teething, I’m cuddling/kissing/ using teething powder at worse giving calpol. Nothing is working and I’m tired of the crying, screaming and the whinging when the above are not being done. I’m frustrated I can’t help her!

I’m tired of cleaning poop out of underpants of being told “No mammy, you not to touch Thomas” “No Mammy you not to blah blah”

I’m tired that I had to crawl out of the bedroom as Miss C will not go to sleep!

Thankfully the day got slightly better after I started…
