Hello out there.
So, I thought it would be a good idea to have some place online (we all know the only safe place at home is the toilet) where I can share my ups and downs with people who might also be going through the same thing. Hopefully share the same issues and giggles, stop me from bottling things up; if only feelings were as easy to pour out as wine!
I guess I should tell a little bit about me, I’m a working mum, too close to 30 for comfort. I like chocolate, wine, hotbaths and sunshine. Self diagnosed with depression…ooh bombshell! Maybe I’ll talk about that more later.
So onto the monster child…
My terror is 22 months old, a right Jekyl and Hyde character. At the moment we are suffering with ‘no nap after lunch’ syndrome. Symptoms include turning into the Taz of Tazmania with a Kevin (& Perry) style attitude, and the clumsiness of someone who’s been downing bottles of wine since 9am (wine might be a common factor in every blog!), all whilst groaning ‘ooooooowwwww’ on a constant loop. Luckily he hasn’t figured out he could climb out of his cot if he wanted too, so if my conscious is feeling strong willed we practice forced naps. Yep I camp outside baby jail, and celebrate with an air fist pump when all goes quiet (swiftly followed by a hot cuppa and geordie shore on catch up!).
Any advice on surviving this daily struggle would be accepted.
So there’s my first post. A little bit about me and the monster, and a request for help.
I better unlock the toilet door and go do some mum stuff…1 hour count down till monsters bedtime, yay!
