We’re having one of those nights
I’m about to lose my……..mind. I have heard every whinge, whine, cry and sook known to man and I am about to lose it.
So what do I do?
Share it with you!
Do you ever have those days when you get to 5:30 at night and you are suddenly contemplating sneaking the clock off the wall, moving time forward an hour or two so that you can send them to bed…...now?
I have counted to three about ten times. We have sat on the time out step. We have threatened with bed, no play dates, no ipads...the list goes on.
Bathtime was painful. Dinner was a nightmare. Bedtime is…...still going. We've had Mummy lay down, Daddy lay down, a drink, quiet music, a banana, a drink, the fan on, the fan off, a drink…...for Mummy.
I love my children and I know you love yours, but please, next time you are having a night like mine and you are about to scream (or lock yourself in the bathroom…..not that I do that, just saying), know that you are NOT stuffing up this whole parenting debacle and that your children are completely normal….or as completely normal as mine are anyway!
