How's your afternoon going? Once again, we are feeling the burn from overscheduling today and little Miss is feeling pretty manky!
What do you do when the kids are just over it and crying every few minutes?? At these times, I find that screen time is our very worst enemy!!! So in goes my peace and calming into the diffuser, and we run a bath.
Read this if you’re having one of those days!
Most days I am a confident, fun, competent and loving mother. I can handle anything my three kids throw at me (figuratively speaking!) I am the Mum who conducts experiments with them, jumps on the trampoline with them and bakes with them. Other days, like today, these kids get the better of me and have me doubting my competence as a mother. I forget all of the above and am deflated. Today Jack and Mia have whinged all day and have thrown at least 500 tantrums over silly things like the way Mia looked at Jack or the way Jack passed Mia’s baby chino to her 🙄, William has cried ALL day and I am utterly exhausted. I don’t know whether I want to go straight to bed once we get them to sleep or whether I want to stay up and just have some time to myself!
If this is you today or it has been you just remember that tomorrow is a new day and going to sleep tonight will reset your mood and see you as the competent, strong and lovable mother again tomorrow.
We have the essential oils diffusing tonight, I have bathed all three kids in vetiver oil hoping it will keep them all asleep tonight and am looking forward to that 7pm bedtime! .
One of my favourite #veggiemost dinners. Pre packaged cauliflower fried rice with shrimp, chicken and egg, topped with green onion, sesame seeds and of course sriracha 😍 now to see if the offspring will eat it...
Today was tough... but so are we ✨👊🏻
Not everyday is perfect. Some days are overwhelming, they feel impossible... the key is finding that moment and a way to turn it around 💕 #bringonbedtime#tomorrowisanewday#mindset
We had the pleasure of guests yesterday at the beach, today we ticked of the Park, a boat ride and the pier. Who knows what we shall do tomorrow, the days seem long enough to do everything and anything we could ever dream 😂 #bringonbedtime#myboys#whitby#holiday
School pick up happy snap.... reality - I had just screamed at the boys in the pick up line through the car window to hurry up and they were not happy with me; Hugo and I are going on a max of two hours sleep from last night and we were in the zarrafas drive through for coffee to keep me awake, and cookies to keep them quiet 😩; the boot is loaded with wine in celebration of the end of dry July! #reallife#mumlife#mumofboys #😩 #😜#bringonbedtime
So this morning my car wheel fucking exploded while we were driving up a country lane because some idiot driver ran us off the road! (we’re all okay thank you to those who have been asking & I had a spare tyre in my car, luckily ❤️) Delilah has also been in the absolute wars today, she fell over and scratched all her face and then later on, when we were out for dinner, she ran straight into a table with her nose 😭. My poor baby! 😫 Tomorrow is a new day 💆🏻♀️💆🏻♀️💆🏻♀️. #bringonbedtime#exausted
They may look cute and like butter wouldn’t melt. But wow, they can fight like cat and dog! 🙈😳 Fingers crossed they get more sleep tonight and we have happier children who aren’t constantly trying to upset each other. 🙄🤞🏻 Everyone else’s kids seem to be wonderful friends, but surely there must be some like mine? That play happily for a short time and then suddenly decide to wind each other up and start fighting?! Argh! 🤷🏼♀️🤔😳 #ukparentbloggers#feralkids#bringonbedtime#summerholidays#pinklinker
Dinnertime in the Bryant-McPhee household 🤦♀️ these kids aren't coping well with the heat lots of tantrums from the little one ( harlow aka bam bam) and Jackson is just tired and grumpy until the appearance of an ice cream 😂
