School Holidays, Day Four
Me: * Constantly PMSing*
Briar: *Constantly yelling at Xanthe*
Xanthe: *Constantly annoying Maurice*
Maurice: *Constantly screaming*
Xanthe: Can we watch a DVD?
Me: Fuck yes.
Honestly, I feel like my family’s life would be 100% better if I was able to manage my PMS with medicinal marijuana.
Seven days a month, every month, with a psycho monster mother/wife is no way to live.
Today Maurice found a string of green beads, which he proceeded to put on and off all day long. I took them off him at nap time, for obvious reasons, but as soon as he was up again he went and tracked them down and put them back on.
This evening his dinner was a bit hot, so he blew on each spoonful he took before putting it in his mouth.
After he’d finished eating and was all clean again, he spun around and around in circles making himself dizzy.
I’m kind of blown away. It’s like he decided who he wants to be overnight or something, because all of a sudden he has these little quirks and desires. It’s so lovely. I’ve been struggling with him lately because of all the tantrums, but today was amazing. What a cool little person.
School Holidays, Day Two
Me: How about you guys do your new colouring books?
Two minutes later
I feel like it’s okay because a) it’s super cute, b) I’ll only use it when go to dangerous places like the beach where he’s inclined to try and run away and drown himself and c) he loves walking but hates holding my hand so actually we now have the best of both worlds.
Go ahead and judge me. Just make sure you have at least three children yourself.
