It’s been a little bit of a tough week to say the least. The children have been under the weather with coughs and colds. This has led to cabin fever setting in which in turn led to squabbles about anything and everything.
The children have been arguing over toys, television programmes, teeth brushing, and who’s turn it is to have raspberries blown on tummies. Although it’s quite comical at times it’s also frustrating and draining.
I’m sure it’s just that point in the summer holidays where everyone is getting a little fed up. We are all starting to crave a term time routine. I do my best to keep them occupied. There are only so many times you can visit the library and the park.When you have a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old the challenge is even greater.
I wondered if the solution was that we need to buy doubles of everything but I’m sure the children would just find something else to squabble about. I will stand back and keep acting as referee and hope that I survive with some of my sanity intact.
