All these thoughts go round in my head on a daily basis. What can I do to get our good boy back? The boy I am proud of and don’t have to worry about at nursery – the one that plays nicely with other children and behaves appropriately.
So last weekend we went home for a few days. We needed to get out of the city for a bit, and have some time with the family. It has been a stressful and busy few months after Christmas.
The truth is, people of all ages can freak out when we don’t get what we want. The only difference with children is they don’t care who sees it. Their lack of communication skills combined with the desire for instant gratification is a waiting room disaster waiting to happen.
Right now, I am moving onwards and upwards and I am so excited for a new adventure to start so that it allows for greater opportunities for my family and I.
This weekend I found myself at a loose end on Saturday afternoon when the rugby was on. Hubby was watching that, and little man was snuggled up with him on the sofa playing on the iPad.
Whitestep have developed a quiz to help expectant and new parents understand the costs of raising a child under 5, and the implications that it might mean.
We arrived home at about 4pm, exhausted from a full on few days but it was lovely to spend some time as husband and wife, and not mummy and daddy.
It was the first time since last May that we had spent any time just the 2 of us, and it was much needed.
