Parenting can be such great fun and can certainly be very rewarding but I also have very ‘scream in the pillow’ and ‘grey hairs’ kinda days/weeks.
My son is 7 going on 17 and yes he knows EVERYTHING and strops like you won’t believe. Drives me up the wall, but of course I love him so very much!
My daughter is 4 and yes she is such a little princess lol!
I am a SAHM and I love spending this time with them, picking them up from school/nursery, going on play dates etc but I do feel like my brain is slightly shrivelled up and I don’t quite know who ‘Shannan’ is anymore. All I seem to be is MUM not just SHANNAN!!
As much as I’d like to go back to work, I can’t as Caitlyn’s nursery haven’t any more space for her to go longer in the day. This month we find out about schools-can’t wait! September can’t come any sooner but the. I also don’t want my last little ‘baby’ to grow and change into a ‘BIG GIRL’ as she says.
I do find I have days when I’m constantly shouting, screaming and moaning. The kids don’t want to listen to me, are cheeky and are just playing up, probably because I’m so moody and shouty. Half the time I know it’s premenstral but deep down…I’m tired, bored and need to find something for me to do. That’s why I stared blogging.
Do any of you mums know what I’m talking about. I’m always looking up ways to find calm and patients and Pinterest is always a good guide.
Here are a few ideas Iv found for me to look through!
- How to stop being an ANGRY MUM!
- How to stop yelling!
- How to thrive as a mum!
- 6 ways to STRESS LESS as a mum!
It’s the holidays and sometimes I really looking forward to them and look forward to fun days out…but sometimes I feel nervous (am I going to shout all holiday?) why can’t I say to myself “relax women and enjoy” is there something wrong with me?!
How can I be cross with these two!!
But then on dodgy days I’m like…⤵️
I think deep down I must be too hard on myself and yes I must calm down a little…they are only little for such a short time!
Hope you enjoyed the read! XoX
