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.
“Stop faffing around with the lid Meemy & hand over my babyccino” 👧🏼 ☕️ Does your toddler throw these down like there’s no tomorrow? 😅 We were out in the big wild world today at a super cool launch event for the NI science festival (15-25th Feb) there’s tonnes on the programme for families so I’m really looking forward to it. In other news you know when everyone tells you toddlers are awful and you think to yourself ‘yeah, but mine will be lovely.’ It’s a lie, you’re kidding yourself, they’re the worst. Trust me 😂 #stubbornAF #toddlerproblems #belfast #northernireland #strongwilled
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.
