So as promised, for those that follow my blog and social media you will know that I had been planning my best friends hen weekend for the past few months.
Sometimes, you have to pick your battles with children, and a football lesson might be one battle that I am not willing to fight at the moment. Maybe when he is a little older and not a devil child aka toddler going through the terrible two’s.
Being quite a young mum means that sometimes people may look at me and say I have my priorities all wrong. All I am trying to do is find a balance. A balance for me, my friends and my family.
So, when one day there was no parent & child spaces available in the car park, I realised how important they are to us parents. How are we supposed to get our children out of a car seat without smashing the car door of the person parked next to us?
I think we can all agree that there is nothing better than using a bag of chocolate buttons as a bargaining tool for a toddler. Yes I hold my hands up. I bribe my child with chocolate!
DO have fun. It is a wedding after all. Try not to stress too much as this may come across as looking grumpy or like you are not having fun. If there are other children there, try and introduce them as they can then play together and entertain themselves.
Of course I want to spend every minute with my little man. Well I say every minute….not so much when he is having one of his legendary tantrums. The ones that result in him running round the house screaming NO at the top of his voice while throwing anything he can get his hands on.
