I have not got my shit together at all. School is back and I don’t like it! I’m disorganised, frazzled and often overwhelmed by how much there is to do once I pick the kids up from school!
The kids are shattered. We’re all moaning about homework – they have SOOO much! I haven’t managed to do my weekend cooking to make life easier during the school week so I’m completely frazzled at dinner time. I’m no gourmet cook but I like to put something decent on the table.
The other night my little fellow wanted to show me something at about 7:30pm and because he was supposed to be in bed, I said no. I was tired and just wanted to flick through FB in a mindless haze. When I went to do my nightly check on the kids before I went to bed, he was on the floor camped out. I felt like a crap mum…he obviously needed some help with getting to sleep (he’s been having that problem since going back to school).
My second youngest is a perfectionist and because of that he gets frustrated easily (we’re working on it – but I’m a parenting “expert” so I should have this sorted by now!!!!). Fortunately my 2 eldest kids and husband seem to have it together..for now.
I could go on and on but I guess you get my drift. I know I’ll get on top of it but right now, I’m most certainly not and I feel crap.
