Well this morning was a doozy! 2nd day of husbands new job and things are a bit rocky in the morning with breakfast and getting 5 bodies out the door. Lunch boxes were filled with empty bread rolls and fruit and I can't remember what else. There's a list of things the big boys need to do in the morning and the two oldest managed to work through it but things started corroding when number 3 would rather start screaming than do dishes. Meanwhile the 3 year old discovered a Lego creation he just had to make and refused to put on all clothes. After giving choices and bribery I had to put them on however I could and then carried him after more choices screaming to the buggy. With the big boys out the door I now had a screaming 3 year old strapped into his seat and a bewildered 1 year old looking on. He screamed the whole walk to day care and I felt like one of those parents you look at in sympathy yet glad it's not your own.....I had a blank stare on my face the whole way haha!
Anyways we got there. Amazing daycare teacher intervened with their magical ways and I soon found myself free and walking out the door. Kinda feel like I've been hit by a bus but I'm alive.
It's my free day no kids for a whole day and hubby said I need to give myself a break. So I'm having a moment. Why do we not give ourselves enough of these? Maybe because some of the stuff that happens in between sucks all life so that your left feeling like a numb stunned mullet.. Anyways give yourself more moments I reckon (insert emoji of woman floating in coffee) instead I found this pic from the 'good' magazine I flickered through while having my moment, possibly a more mature response to life? Who knows...
Another fun fact, I have a pregnancy mask, that's where your skin is the opposite of the 'glow' promised in those annoying pregnancy shoots.
So over the last few days I've realised straight out that I can't do this health journey alone so Iv found myself asking friends questions about what they do and it's been super thought provoking - I'd like to say iv started blitzing it but I'm just scratching the surface so my bed reading is
... Yes it's all a bit random but hey it's a start right? Xoxo
