I don’t want to shock anyone, but I am not a perfect mother. Who knew?
But I have to say, I think I am on a roll this week.
Last week wasn’t so flash. 11 year old boy was being an absolute shite to one and all. Which led to me using a few choice words with my face very close to his, and letting him know that relationships are a 2 way street, not just a sphere with him in the middle. Middle child. I may or may not have blasphemed to/at him. What can I say…I can certainly coin a phrase when losing it with a kid who is being rotten. I was always good at English.
Whatever. It worked. He has been a doll this week.
And I am quite liking the other two boys as well. Hopefully these planets will all stay in alignment a while longer!
What is different from this week to last week when I didn’t particularly like any of them? Well a few things. I am back at work, and maybe that is making me appreciate my time with the boys so much more.
My Mum is staying with us and looking after them while I am at work. Maybe that is making them appreciate me so much more.
And my husband is away for a few days for work. Now that doesn’t mean we don’t love him and miss him. And he did only leave today. But what is nice is that it is a change to routine, and sometimes I think that helps too!
We have 3 ½ more weeks of school holidays. Count them. Three. And. A. half. I hope this family lov’n lasts that whole time…
Would this boy ever be rotten? Naaahhhhh…….
