There are 2 things that I will take away from this action packed 10 days.
1. Being a mummy is knackering and
2. kids are assholes. (At least one of mine
These are both things that I kind of knew but nothing like a series of day trips to really hammer it home!!
I have discovered that my usually fairly feral but normally relatively well behaved toddler transforms into this shrieky disobedient little hellion if he misses a nap now which is not cool.
But on the plus side it appears that for every percentage increase in shitty behaviour there has been a new word or skill to compensate. So although I have a toddler that has flown right of the chart of 'pain in the arse' he can now tell me which colour crayon he has put all over the walls and calmly count to ten for me!
I have also discovered that sometimes the over whelming urge to slam a small child into a wall is completely to be expected.. But always to be ignored. They will do something endearing soon enough.
So if you have not at some point stood behind the fridge door eating chocolate or swinging from a bottle whilst flicking your kids a V one of you is doing it wrong!
If you have read this and think I am completely out of order and you will never be this kind of mummy... Give it time! X X
