It’s Not All Roses – Living Arrows 2/52

When I thought about what I’d like to publish on my blog this year one of the things I knew had to be a priority was sharing more family life. We take so many photos and it’s a shame to let them languish in the cloud! I decided to consistently link up to Donnas Living Arrows series – a weekly short post sharing a photo of your child from the week gone by. I had this idea that we’d capture and share so many tiny beautiful moments, it was going to be glorious.

But, life with a toddler is a little more complicated than that. This past week has been… tough. Lu has a lot going on, growing up is a tricky business and recovering from the madness of Christmas is taking longer than I anticipated.

We had two really awful days this week, both ended in tears but we made it through at least. Don’t get me wrong, she’s not a devil child but she is 2.5 and does not stop. The tantrums, the toddler anxiety, the questions, the jigsaws – it all gets a bit much sometimes.

Thankfully Matt is off this weekend so I have someone to share the load with. So here you have it, our week summed up. Highs, lows and babyccinos.

    Ahh you’re at that tough stage! I remember it well. My youngest had so many meltdowns it was unreal. Hope you had a lovely weekend, refreshed and ready for the week ahead. x

      ah thank you she seems to be coming out of it a little now. Being a toddler is hard work!

    Oh my gosh I remember this well. My kids have been ‘good’ kids. They have never had bad patches but they have had spells of finding growing up tough, finding their age tough and just finding life tough. Troy still has moments – at nearly five – where he has a meltdown if his socks are the wrong colour, if his favourite pants are in the wash or if, like last night, I forgot to pack slipper socks for a night in a hotel! Jeez some days are hard x

    Those bad days seem just awful at the time, don’t they. You’re right though, we do get through them! I hope this week has been better 🙂
