As this week has been ultra busy with end of year school functions and three craft workshops, I've been tearing my hair out with Henry Bear.
If I hear "Mum, Mum, Mum, mum, mum, mum........muuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmm" one more time I might just scream. Or my other favourite "good boy mum."
"You making dinner mum? good boy mum", "you close door mum? good boy mum", "you fix the clothes mum, good boy mum", "you did wees mum, good boy mum".
And then there is the mess.
Time management isn't one of my strong points, so life is a constant battle between mothering, housework, cooking and my art and craft. However, this week I just seem to be teaching Bear how to turn "his initiative" into "better initiative" :

cucumber echidnas > play dough echidnas

 life of the party > lights out

wall graffiti > rainbow drawings

silly games > excellent games

destroying > helping

eating > cleaning teeth

and then there are the other three:
One is VERY loud. all the. time.
One has a silly sense of humour and loves to prank.
One MUST have perfect hair.

And so with my sanity on the line, it was suggested by my sister that I download the new Play School App. It is the most basic of Apps, perfect for 2 year olds, but please don't tell the authorities my child has been on 'tronics' non stop these past few days! It has literally saved my life.
Do you have a hero? You know, someone who has saved you from the brink? My hero is a Play School App, hows that for different!
The past 3 days I have breathed on my own without sharing the breath with a two year old, and I am able to face tomorrow.

Thank you Play School and thank you Jess xoxo
With Love

  3. Ha! This made me laugh very loudly! Love the photos. Gosh I have nothing but admiration for you being mumma to four! So tempted to get the play school app for Lola :) and I'm praying she never wants perfect hair, coz I'm pretty hopeless in that area! Obviously you're not! Love reading your words x

    1. Just you wait until Lola when is a school , she'll want hair just like the others!

  4. he is sooooooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!! I must say that having 2 little buddies by my side every day does make it a bit easier because they play with each other all the time, twice the mess but twice the fun! such cute photos.........

    1. Yes, last year was a tad easier with Lulu at home, at least they were each others entertainer! x
