I also HATE dinner time. Its not just the dinner. Its just THAT time of day. Last night for example, dp didn't get home from work till 730. Started dinnEr around 5. Baby would NOT sit quietly so I'm cooking with her in the sling. Peeling potatoes, cutting meat. Everything. Ds wants to play dress ups and is standing at my feet whinging for me to change his masks and shoes and watch him. The baby does a massive poo explosion which goes everywheRe. Sling, clothes, ME. Dp gets home just in time for tea and we sit down. It takes all of five minutes for ds to announce its yucky. He has eaten maybe 3 bites. Sigh. It feels like I have made a huge mess in the kitchen and stressed myself to prepare something healthy and fresh for nothing!! Ugh.
I am sick to death of the battle to brush my daughters hair every. single. bloody. day!!!
I have been trying for the last 50mins so far this morning with little success and i need to go out to buy some things today - i refuse to leave the house with her hair completely matted into giant, boffy knots.
She runs, hides, shakes her hair up to re-knot it, screams.
I am so over it - i cut it bob length but it still knots terribly and i wish i could shave it.
All those out there who wish they had little girls so they could do their hair LMAO - i wish that were the case but not in this house. I can barely keep it brushed and as for tying it up - im-bloody-possible.
hi again, as the resident grandma,( I think I am anyway) the talk about homework reminds me of one Religion Assignment I did for my daughter in Grade nine. I got an A for it, woohoo!! I dont think I got many "A"s while I was at high school. I just wanted to post that for those thinking this will be better when the children get older. Marie.
I just had this convo with DD a week back
DD - Have you always been a mummy?
Me - No I used to work in a cafe
DD - But you don't know how to work mum...
Erm yeah, good one DD.
