Yes I know we’re already a week back to school but it’s been hectic!!! Phew! 2 weeks off school with 5 kids has brought me to the edge of insanity BUT we got through it! Lol We’ve had tears and meltdowns (me and them), squabbling, screaming, fisticuffs and to top it off a fractured toddler elbow!!! 😩
Whilst other parents post pictures of their perfectly well behaved children doing something wholesome and outdoorsy every day, I’m a prisoner in my own home. Stuck in the house arguing with the big boys that it’s time to vacate their pit and switch the X Box off!!
The Little ones taking it in turns to cry, shit, sleep, repeat! 👶🏻👶🏻🤦🏻♀️
Seriously I’m at the end of my tether….. I’m not gonna lie these past few weeks have been bloody hard work!!!
My eldest has become practically aggro-phobic and doesn’t want to leave his safe zone at home. His anxiety has reached new heightened levels so it takes hours of persuasion but we eventually try leaving the house for a walk. Nice bit of fresh air in our lungs 🐾🐶🌲🍃 However as the end of the hols drew closer we did manage to get The big boys out swimming with dad, to a retro gaming cafe (more computers) lol. We hid a few decorated rocks on our walk to then post on Facebook and re-hid them for others to find …..apparently it’s a new craze. Who knew?! For more info See.Portsmouth Rocks UKFinally I braved it and took all 5 to the inflatables session….. which is basically loads of bouncy castles indoors and 30 odd kids running riot! Fun times 👍
So they did get out and do and few activities eventually.
In other news the twins are teething big time and I am seriously sleep deprived. Getting roughly 3-4 hours sleep a night is not really sufficient to survive 😴 Tommy has literally been beating me up out of frustration daily and sometimes quite violently ☹️ and in between cuddles But I grin and bear it, heartbreaking as it is. Poor me!
On Thursday the Tornado fell off the sofa (climbing again) so a 10pm little trip to the local treatment centre was in order. We thought he’d popped his elbow out if it’s joint again ….so they clicked it back into place. However this time something wasn’t right, he still couldn’t use it and was dragging his limp arm around like Woody from Toy Story! So next day he had to go to A&E. Finally the doctors find a hairline teeny tiny fracture in his elbow!! Poor little Tornado 🌪
However today the sun is now shining 🌞and I got 6 hours sleep last night! 😃 Bonus. I feel normal Service has now been resumed at the Madhouse! …….Oooh and We won on Euromillions last night 🎉 (a whole £6.80) but better than a poke in the eye. As the song says ‘Things Can Only Get Better’.
Life will improve soon I’m certain 😊 Gotta take the rough with the smooth and I’ll take whatever life throws at me!
Anyways I’m back in the game now! 😃💪🏻😘 I’ve missed my little ranting space. I’m So glad to be back to bend your ears! 👂🏻👂🏻
Also to make me feel better I am going ‘out out’ next month …… I’m gonna get shitfaced on jäger bombs and dance on the tables!! Ha ha! 🍹🥂🍾💃🏻😁
