From then on she's got it in her head that I love fairies and has bought me more fairy books, statues, ornaments and jigsaw puzzles. They are just not my thing but I can't bring myself to tell her when she lovingly presents me with these items.
    Yesterday I was on the phone with her and she announced she'd found me another fairy book/ jigsaw puzzle. I feigned excitement.
    I now have fairy statues in every nook and cranny of the house and it only occurred to me yesterday that I've been polite and gracious but really don't want or even like them 😳
    Haha oh dear. When I first had DS1, I had a deep love of peasant skirts. My then MIL would not stop buying them for me even though the ones she picked were so not my style. Think sequins and mirrors!

    Go to sleep child! You know the rule is one story and one song in bed then quiet cuddles until you fall asleep so why must you test me every single night?!

    I got give a sixth foot freezer. I desperately want to bake fill it with school treats and pre made dinners. Here's the vent part. I have to wait for dh to do some stuff before I can turn it on. He won't be able to do it for 2 more days... patience isn't my best quality. Bad wifey!

    DD isn't feeding to sleep anymore so I'm putting her to bed awake and she cries a bit and goes to sleep. This is relatively new in our house.

    Nap times comes along and DSS tells me that I'm a bad mother, I don't care about DD, I don't take care of her and I mustn't love her because she's crying. Way to break my heart. I know he's saying this out of love for his sister but it cut deep.

    And she wouldn't be so bloody tired of he didn't wake her up from her previous nap 😡

    Bad day.

    Just to say the obvious - you're definitely not a bad mother.
    Learning new sleep habits is hard, and your DD won't like it. It will (hopefully) improve. Big hugs.

    Thank you

    It was just one of those days where everything got to me. I'm so utterly sleep deprived and have pangs of guilt about leaving DD in her cot - DSS struck a very raw nerve on a very tired/grumpy me.

    I totally get it. You're not alone. Mummy guilt is a monster, and sleep deprivation makes everything a hundred time worse. Be kind to yourself.
