Look at that angelic face.
This week has had it's ups and downs. Life with two is hard and I have really felt it over the last couple of days. I try to be a calm Mummy as much as possible but I've found myself feeling frustrated and lacking patience. It's a constant juggle between the two of them and I stupidly decided to tackle potty training at the same time, which was not as straightforward as I had hoped. It's made more difficult because my attention is split, I'm sure it would be easier for her if I had nothing else to think about and wouldnt miss a wee opportunity because I'm settling Thomas or something similar.
Getting out of the house is great once we are there, but boy it's fun and games getting them both up, dressed, packed and out the door. I have some wonderful friends that make it all worthwhile once we meet up. Yesterfay Kate somehow emptied out the wipes, nappies and muslims from the change bag whilst I was putting Thomas in the car. This may not seem a problem except I only realised once we were out and Thomas needed changing. Today however, we had no plans to get out and it meant that our morning was slow but more relaxed. Thomas managed one nap in his bed this morning so I had some 1:1 time to play with Kate. It was magical ans she didn't want it to end when he woke and honestly, I didn't either. I put aside all the tidying and cleaning that was also sat waiting and just enjoyed the time with her. Today reminded me that it's ok to slow down, to enjoy the moments that we can get and survive by whatever means necessary *she says whilst eating her way through a large bar of Galaxy.
