It was a normal day in the mini zoo – a rush to get to school and grumpy children finding every little thing to complain about.
I pulled myself out of bed at 7am. Wyatt was already awake watching DVDs (we’ve had to hide the Sky remote hoping that it will stop him from getting up in the middle of the night). No such luck though, as he just puts the DVD player on instead.
I did my usual morning routine but from the moment I got up I wasn’t in the best of moods. Something went wrong straight away which put me in foul mood for the rest of the day. It involved our financial situation and the amount of bills I had to pay.
The rest of the day I just couldn’t shake my mood. I felt exhausted by around 1pm and usually Aurora tends to go for her afternoon nap, which she did but Kiiara, despite rubbing her eyes, simply refused point blank to go to sleep. Instead however she had been rolling around making noises until she uttered the words “Hiya dada”.
At first we really had to listen to believe that was what she said but then she said it again.
We were over the moon. Bless her, she’s only 6 months old and she’s learnt 2 words already! I still could have had my nap though but she finally decided to nod off at quarter to three which meant we had to go and pick Faith and Wyatt up from school. Mummys naps just don’t happen. It just meant I had to survive on my afternoon coffee instead.
The rest of the day was quite normal really. Faith and Wyatt ended up arguing which led to me shouting. Aurora seemed to get second wind and act like she had been on a sugar rush. She ran up and down the hallway (almost like a daily workout for her) which always puts me on high alert because she ran face first into the door the other day and ended up with a bump on her head.
She still got up and continued to do it. Kids ayy! They seem to think they are invincible but in the process they are giving Mummy panic attacks at the same time.
My Mum and Sister came over for a visit yesterday. My sister is 7 years younger than me and a complete phone addict, so we decided to have a bit of fun and take some photos with snapchat filters on. I’ve got to the age where it all seems alien to me. I remember the days when I was a whizz with the older model phones but now I don’t have a clue how to work them very well – things have definitely changed over the years.
I’ve finally braved it and starting the weaning process with Kiiara. She’s still mostly breastfed but i’ve started introducing smooth baby puree. As much as it makes me sad i’ve got to realise I can’t keep her a baby for much longer especially with her chatting away now.
After such a stressful morning the rest of the evening went quite smoothly which i’m grateful for. Back to the grind again today though. I’ve had an appointment with Wyatts speech and language therapist this morning too. There’s never one day that goes by that I don’t feel like i’m on overdrive. It’s all part of being a Mummy I guess.
