Little things 

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say as a parent I have times when I feel guilty about the kids.

The days when all I hear is the sound of my own voice and feel like I’ve not done anything but moan!

The days when I feel like they’ve watched too much tv or had too much screen time.

The days when I’m tired and grumpy and not as patient as I could or should be.

After having what feels like the exact same conversation with my teenager daughter for about the millionth time and after me sighing and walking into the kitchen shaking my head also for about the millionth time this weekend, I stopped and thought~how awful all I do is moan.

I then proceeded to put the pans away that I had used to make them chocolate chip pancakes this morning as soon as I had stepped out of bed, I looked into the garden at the den I had helped to build and started to get my bag ready for our afternoon trip to the beach, and I thought hey do you know what? It’s not been such a bad day so far has it? 

My boy helped me make the pancakes and there was laughter and giggles from the den. We will all enjoy a walk/scoot along the seafront later and the fresh air will be much appreciated.

I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t let the negatives overshadow the positives, parenting is in my opinion one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever undertaken but it’s also the most rewarding. 

We did have a lovely afternoon and now we are home, the kids are getting bathed and I’m cooking a roast dinner.

Everyone’s happy~I’m looking forward to a relaxed eve with them before the madness of another week begins, where I will undoubtably be feeling the same as I did this morning. However I will also try and take five minutes to think of the positives of which, how ever tiny they may seem there are always lots of.❤️x
