“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” – Kahlil Graham
I have to admit this week has been a bit up and down. I am still struggling to adjust to this working lark! I’m constantly tired and just cannot seem to get enough sleep! Mum guilt has been a massive part of the past week too. I completely forgot to book James’ birthday off work so he spent it alone, the girls have been so poorly and I couldn’t take Baby L to her jabs because I was at work. But despite having to go into work for training on Saturday, I have had a near perfect weekend with my favourite people!
My poor Little S has been struggling this week. She came home from nursery quite poorly on Thursday and has been complaining of a ‘spicy tongue’ since! Thankfully she seems to be on the mend now. But I am struggling with her behaviour. She is such a creature of habit so I know she is probably struggling to adjust to our new routine! At the moment I am giving her the benefit of the doubt and explaining good behaviour gives her good choices.
Baby L is clearly more adjustable than we give her credit for. I honestly thought she would be the one who struggled the most! But this week was the first week she hasn’t cried on nursery drop off. James tells me she was an absolute trooper for her jabs too! We are still battling with her cough but she doesn’t let it affect her too much. Her new thing is telling Daddy “yeah” every time he tells her “no”! Cheeky madam.
I don’t really feel like I’ve seen that much of the girls this week so I’m already counting down the days until Saturday again! Please tell me this working Mum thing gets easier?
