Apparently, the terrible twos are a normal stage in a toddler’s development. It’s when they struggle between their reliance on adults and their desire for independence, but after having such a happy and even-tempered first baby, i thought it was all a myth! Oh, how wrong was I…
My son is now 2 years – 4 months, and my search history is filled with googled questions like ‘how to stop my toddler biting?’ and ‘why is my toddler evil?’ (yes, I’ve really googled that one). I feel like I’m living the Exorcist story, only it’s a little boy who’s possessed, where “No” has began to dominate his vocabulary and he insists on doing everything himself!
Whilst there’s no official motherhood manual, and your basically just thrown in head first. Once your doing it, you get it. Along with all the weird and wonderful things, here are just some of them you never thought you would be doing…
Carrying around random child items in your bag
No matter how old your kids are, and whether it be in your pockets or your handbag, there’s always that random toy or some dead flowers that were picked just for mum. Whatever it is, whenever we come across it on our own, it sure brings a smile to our face.
After a night of restless sleep and a wet bed escapade with a toddler, i was really needing that extra 10 minutes of snooze this morning. To be honest, i need that extra 10 minutes every morning.
The TV is switched on where the kids will indulge in a good 15 minutes of cbeebies, (yep 15 whole minutes, I’ve counted) before they’re fed up and next thing i know my sons trapped inside a pillow case. Whilst in this time, I’ve managed to scrub up and find a pair of matching socks. Go me!
When i’m in a rush to get the kids ready for school or for when i just don’t fancy wearing makeup, i always rely on these 5 products to get me looking put together and a little less zombie. My skin is usually dry, patchy, and i have really purple eye bags. So i really need a bit of brightening to help me feel a bit more confident when bearing a fresh face.
