Hey! How are we all?
So we are still on holiday, it’s very hot and very lovely but even though we are on the ultimate child friendly holiday I am still finding myself getting to the end of the day frazzled and in need of chocolate, alcohol and three days of sleep!
How is everyone else’s summer holiday going? Sometimes I wonder if I am totally nuts. I absolutely long for quality time with my family where we can bond more and spend time just us, then when I actually get it I find myself full of all of the anxieties I get but usually put down to shift work, home stresses and life in general.
What can my excuse be here? We have Disney, we have Universal Studios, we have now moved to a villa with its own pool so we can swim at our convenience, we don’t have to rush off anywhere unless we want to and we are mostly eating out. Oh and there is a dishwasher here! Do I simply need to acknowledge that having children is the most happy, rewarding and fulfilling experience but it’s also the hardest, most frustrating and tiring experience you will ever have too?
My boys make me laugh every single day and I cannot describe the joy I have watching them and how excited they get viewing the world around them and all the amazing things they do. I however do not enjoy the laying on the floor tantrums, the total tired flip outs when it all gets too much and having to try and move a four year old who has anchored himself to a lamp post to avoid going on the direction I am going in!
So this is me, accepting that life is beautiful, wonderful and amazing and it’s also hard, tiring and not always the way we would choose it to be.
Let’s enjoy it anyway!
Much love xx
