And for the sake of balance…
We were up VERY early, the kids are waking when it gets light…and the baby had woken multiple, multiple times in the night.
I yelled at my daughter cos she wouldn’t keep her shoes on, and so she whinged walking bare foot over the stones to playgroup, where she clung to my skirt driving me mad. And she slammed the baby onto the ground and lay on top of her whilst she screamed. The baby whinged the whole time I was hanging the washing. And I’m going to have to cook something else for number two’s supper cos she won’t eat chilli. And the kids spend their whole time calling each other “stupid, stinky idiot”, and they’re now watching TV… So it’s not perfect, we’re not perfect. This is cherry picking the good, the wonderful good of which our life is full, though there are plenty of stinky bits thrown in to chomp on. But let’s celebrate – all is well in my world!
