Two children down..

This weekend my mum has taken K and A, leaving Mr S and I with R..
Now usually when the older two are at home, it’s hard work, even with two parents, we are out numbered and arguments often occur..

I honestly forgot how easy life was with a single child at home, don’t get me wrong I enjoy the challenge of three, but it’s been so easy to run to the toilet without worrying what the three of them will get up to, washing has been put on and I managed to deep clean the bathroom, something that I shamefully haven’t done in a while..

I know by the night time, when I go to bed, I’ll miss them, they won’t be in their beds for me to kiss before I go to sleep and they won’t wake me up in the morning demanding breakfast at 5am..

I will just have R..

They are, or at least they can be, a great help too.. helping me get nappies, getting rubbish in the bins and helping me out with R..

But goodness they argue sometimes, with each other and with me hah!

I get them back on Monday morning when my mum goes into work, I hope they are having a fantastic time, they FaceTimed me earlier and A was cooking dinner (Lamb Mince with sweet mash) and K was busy reading Harry Potter (which I had passed down to him the other night, ‘I’m on chapter _’ he yells).

I love my babies so much but sometimes, I think time away from them is good for you, or you can become so stressed.. 

I am going to enjoy my two quiet evenings, playing some games and relaxing.

Until next time

Mummy Cat.

    I’ve been seeing more of how stressful it can be to have several children firsthand recently, since my sister’s just had her second kid. She already struggles enough with balancing out entertaining her nine-year-old and keeping tabs on her newborn between taking care of herself (of course, I help, but I’ve recently been gone more often because of life things). So, I can just imagine how it must be to take on that many. You’re super strong, and you deserve this break!✨

    Completely relate 🙂 when mother in law takes Damian out for the day I remember how easy I had it when he was an only child lol now that Emily is here it’s hard to split yourself in two/three and you often become so wrapped up in kid life that you forget what you time is all about, enjoy the break Hun you deserve it xx

    It’s so nice that you got a bit of time away! But you do miss them like hell!! I remember when me and my husband went away for a weekend on our anniversary and I missed them so much! But it was lovely to just be a couple again, like it used to be xx

    Oh wow I hope you had a wonderfully quiet two evenings, I couldn’t imagine the stress of having three children.

    I went out and about with just one child this weekend and I have to say I forgot how easy just one child is!

    Oh I totally agree every parent needs time to relax and de-stress. It’s my husband and I’s 2nd anniversary next week so we’re having a night to ourselves and I honestly can’t wait. But I’m sure I’ll miss my baby terribly!

    Aw I love that your child is enjoying reading Harry Potter, such magical, brilliant books. ☺️

    I’m glad that you were able to get a bit of a break that way! I know that friends have said the same thing to me in the past – they love their kids, but a day where they are down to one for whatever reason is such a nice break

    I hope that you had a nice time! I love that your child is liking Harry Potter, it’s always been my favourite series so it makes me so happy to know another generation is loving it as much as I did!
