I am having one of those days. A Bad Mummy day. The babies aren’t listening to a word I say, they just seem to leave destruction in their path hence my patience is running very very thin.
Five happy weeks have been and gone. Just one week left until the chaos of school descends upon us.
Yet another week has passed by all too fast. Sadly only two weeks left until miss 7 and Master 5 are back to school. Miss 7 started last night saying she is worried about going back to school. It breaks my heart.
Today I attended the funeral of my Great Uncle. He was my wonderful Nan’s younger brother by 14 years and my Great Aunts twin. They now are the only surviving two of six children. Very sadly one of their other brothers only died 3 months ago. So today brought back many emotions which are still so very raw.
Another week of our summer holidays has flown past. Soon the babies will be back at school and I can already feel that dread starting in the pit of my stomach.
In the early hours of Saturday morning my dear friends mum passed away after a very sudden illness. Saturday was also my dear friends wedding day.
Week two of the summer holidays is over already. Where is the time going? It’s been a bit crazy here this week. I had to work three mornings this week but the babies came along with me. It just meant the days flew without us doing much together. I say we haven’t done much but looking over the week we have!
World Breastfeeding Week is currently underway (1-7 August 2016) and it has got me thinking about my 3 babies. Breastfeeding is so important to me and I was lucky that I was able to feed each of my babies. Miss 7 was fed until 14 months and Master 5 and Master 2 until 1 year.
Master 5 and I have spent a good majority of the afternoon building Lego from a set he received for his Birthday back in June. It has been one of those activities where I have been saying “In a minute I’ve just got to do this”. Or “When we’ve got more time”. The list could go on and then in return I have been feeling massive Mummy guilt. Now we are into the second week of the summer hols and the children are coming down from school frenzy, we have finally sat down together to do his long awaited Lego.
