High hopes with the threenager

I always have high hopes for non pre-school days. I have grand plans to be an amazing not-grumpy Mum, not to yell, do baking, do some arts and crafts, make a delicious lunch, go for a walk. My expectations are high. Every time. 

Reality is, today I had yelled at Brooklyn before the clock even hit 8.30am. Not a great start. Cue Mum guilt. He then asked if he could go to preschool. I don’t blame him 😳 He then proceeded to pull all the couch cushions off the couches and barricade Marlo into the lounge. Cue crying baby, yelling Mum (again) AND crying toddler. Ugh. 

I then took the iPad off him, only to give it back a few minutes later because I preferred the sound of ‘Chase’s Corner’ over his whinging. And to top it all off, he’s told me that he’s hungry about 10 times in the last 2 hours. 

Its 9.30, it’s raining, I’m still not dressed, Brooklyn’s walking around with no pants on because I won’t help him put his undies on (which he is more than capable of doing himself) and I’m going in for coffee round two.

Some days are just write offs. But tomorrow will be a new day… And the threenager will be at pre-school πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™Š

Please tell me I’m not alone!

    Oh, I hear ya!! Wednesday’s are our ‘chill’ days – like you, I have hopes for PJs and some tv watching, then getting rugged up for a bike ride/walk up for coffee, home for a lunch of toasted cheese sambos, then nap/rest/movie time and craft in the afternoon, with a bit of outdoor play whilst I make dinner. Then into a warm batch, tired and content and off to bed. πŸ˜‚ There’s usually WAY too much tv, yelling, broken toys, broken souls, tears, wrestling and chicken nuggets at some stage to make everyone be quiet and eat something that might shut them up for 10 minutes! And me, rocking in the corner with a wine at 5pm!

    OMG I hear ya! I have a 19 month old and a 4 month old (yes a little cray cray having such a small gap πŸ˜†), on non daycare days I have grand plans of walks, mummy coffee catch ups so that the big babies can entertain each other….where in reality lukewarm Nespresso, PJ’s and iPad happen to keep us all sane. 😁

    Oh man so not alone. My threeanger and I are exactly the same. And my girl is going to be tough hanging out with him. I feel for ya. And I see your snaps you do lots of baking. Put me to shame that’s for sure x
