This afternoon was the most hectic it has been in a while. Faith had her school disco to attend so we were rushing around like headless chickens and we were out of whack with our routine, which Kiiara felt the most.
I made sure I got as much done as possible throughout the day so I wouldn’t end up having to do it all when the kids were in bed. I like my time of a night that’s kid-free, if I stay awake that is.
It hit the time to get the gremlins I call my children from school. Wyatt came out in his usual grumpy mood because Aurora had his toy dog which he’s had since he was a baby. He wanted it back. I told him that she would give it him back in a minute but he wasn’t having any of it and ended up having a meltdown.
On the way home even though Wyatt got his dog back, he was still not in the best of moods and accidentally bumped into Liam and the pram. As Liam said,
“Be careful buddy”
Wyatt out of nowhere answered back,
“You should walk quicker then!”
His behaviour has been hard to contend with lately. Sometimes I just get stuck at what to do with him. We decided to send him to his biological Dads place for an hour or so, just him to get his Dad to speak to him one-to-one and hopefully make him realise he can’t behave the way he does.
Prepping for Faiths Disco
After we dropped him off we rushed home to get Faith changed and all dressed up for her disco. She chose to wear a little blue dress. I put her hair in a ponytail, did her make-up and put some of my perfume on her. She even painted her nails! It’s very rare that I do her make-up with her being so young but when it’s a special occasion, I tend to let her wear it.
It was a special Mummy and Daughter moment. I forget that’s she’s slowly turning into a little lady – she’s not so little anymore. She even took her little handbag with her!
We were only home half an hour before we had to lug the prams back down the stairs to get her to the disco. Kiiara was a little cranky because she usually has her baby jar at 4pm but we had to head back out again so she was a little late for it.
We dropped her off. She got given a packet of crisps and a drink before she went in to dance the afternoon away. Liam and I popped to the shops to get some bits – we always seem to run out of something especially with 4 children!
When we finally got home, Faiths disco was supposed to be finishing in less than 25 minutes and I had Kiiara to feed and Liam needed to start the dinner. I rang my Mum earlier that day to ask whether she would mind picking Faith up but received a text afterwards saying she was running late and couldn’t get there on time.
I had to ring Liam’s sister Lisa to see whether she could collect her instead. We had so much to do and not enough time to do it in! Thankfully Lisa said she didn’t mind collecting her. I rang my Mum back and let her know that i’d sorted it and that Wyatt needed picking up from his Dad’s at 6pm.
Arriving back from the Disco
Faith finally arrived back home and she stomped in like a teenager. I asked her how her dance went and she turned around, threw her handbag on the floor and uttered,
“It was absolutely terrible!”
I later found out that she was annoyed, not because of the dance, but because she wanted to go to her Aunty Lisa’s house. She actually enjoyed her dance even though she said she fell over a few times, but overall she had a fun time – she was even kissing a boy. My little girl is not so little anymore.
Wyatt arrived home not long after. He didn’t say much when he got back but just went into the front room. When we finished our dinner and it was time to get them all bathed and ready for bed, I heard him in the front room talking to Aurora asking her,
“Did you miss me? I was at my Dads. I missed you.”
As he spotted me looking, he smiled. I’m hoping that with him being sent to his Dad’s on his own giving him time to miss his sisters and us, his behaviour might improve. A Mum can only hope.
They are all now settled in bed and i’m enjoying the peace and quiet with a good book before the madness begins again tomorrow.
