“I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out”

I have been in tears today for two different reasons; complete exhaustion and complete joy. I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out. The same as every day at the moment with P1 and P2. There would be arguments, there would be tears, there would be fights between them and the battle would continue strong as …

A Letter to my Toddler Going Through The Terrible Twos

To my Toddler, As you throw yourself around the room with legs flailing because you weren’t allowed an ice cream at 7am, I feel myself getting frustrated already. The tears are falling from the argument we’ve had over milk and you have been shrieking for over 20 minutes. You smacked me square in the nose so I told you off …

The Traumas of February Half Term 2015

I’m asking you to think about the absolute worse tantrum you’ve ever experienced with your child or relative. Times that moment by about 10 and you’ll have a clear image of my daughters. I look at these photos of them that I captured the other day and wonder how such beautiful little creatures can be the devil monsters that they …

“She could of cut her foot open”

It’s 9am and this photo pretty much sums up my day so far! I broke a plate whilst washing up. Then P1 broke a glass that she accidentally knocked over. I told her to stay exactly where she was, so of course she jumped up onto the sofa! It’s simple things like that which push me to the limit. I’ve …

“I guess change really does effect children in many ways”

I’m experiencing some parenting troubles since the move. I guess change really does effect children in many ways. To start, P1 has really changed in her attitude and behaviour, not really for the better especially at bedtime. She’s doing the things she knows she isn’t allowed like turning the main light on. Although I’ve had excellent reports from her class …

“She was hysterical!”

We had the absolute day from hell with P1 yesterday. Anything we said to her just wasn’t good enough. She repeated over and over. Did things we told her not to do. And then when it came to bedtime… Oh didn’t she perform! Firstly, she took ages to persuade to go to the toilet. I had to repeat myself over …

Challenge Day#6

9AM – I raised my voice to about a level 6. All we argued about was putting shoes and coats on. That’s how blooming ridiculous it was. I probably didn’t need to shout at her, I could have dealt with it in a mature calm manner – but I just didn’t. I couldn’t. I’m just so fed up of her …

Challenge Day#5

Today was a bad day for yelling. It started off amazing! She was so good getting dressed, we were all laughing and dancing about. Then we went round the MiLs and it just went downhill from there. P1 finds it hard to communicate properly with her younger Uncle. He’s nearly 3. One minute they’ll be playing beautifully, the next Uncle …

You Will Obey

Last night P1 ended up in bed early. This usually happens once a month and it’s enough to get her behaviour back on track. Last night my OH and I were completely at the end of our tether with her. The “naughty step” hadn’t worked its wonders and we were still getting smirks from her as we told her to …

From The Monster Within

I was P1-free today. This morning I was really looking forward to it but by midday everything was far too quiet and I was getting bored of watching episode after episode of CSI! I was so excited to have P1 home but when she arrived I got told she’s not been behaving too great at my Grandparents regarding meal times …
