Just when I thought today couldn’t push any more buttons

I’ve come down stairs after folding clothing and Alanah has removed a rather large section of that stupid gold piece of art.
I promised myself I would never smack my children, as growing up I was and for a very long time I disliked the person who did it and it shouldn’t have been that way.
Yesterday when Lani rearranged the piece she received a very stern talking to, but today I completely lost it and I smacked her. (The nappy softened the smack somewhat). I was just so incredibly angry. I feel like she’s doing it purposely. There was no denying my tone of voice yesterday, so to do it again today…. OMG SO ANGRY!

I’m also annoyed with Ross for once again not removing it. The bugger came home earlier last night and instead of removing it, he invited friends over to look at the house and then once they left (at 10pm), fell asleep on the couch till 2am.

I’m going to hide under the bed until Alanah is 18 and that stupid gold thing is gone.

OMG she is testing my patience.

I’m finding myself needing to walk away, take a deep breath and reassess, far too often at the moment.

Drawing on walls and furniture, pulling every wipe out of every packet, tipping the dogs water bowl over and losing her mind when we have to go somewhere.

I’m trying so hard, but this mum gig isn’t easy. The tantrums are unbelievable. The compromises are ridiculous. My mood stinks and her attitude sucks.

I NEED A HOLIDAY

The landlord left this super delicate, rather expensive, piece of art hanging in the living room. I asked if we could remove it and they said yes, but Ross has been working till super late and hasn’t had a chance to remove it and I’m not tall enough to get up there. In the mean time, Alanah has just “rearranged” a bit. Shoot me.

We tried Morrisons today rather than our usual supermarket. Aside from a remarkably quiet shopping experience as Lani passed out, we are never shopping there again; it was too confusing and not enough product variety.

It’s been a completely chaotic weekend while we moved house; so much so I sadly forgot that my mini mini is now 2 months old. Lucy has such an incredibly gentle ora around her, she completely amazes me. She smiles and loves to be involved in everything. Totally loves a chat and is just so tolerant of her big sisters antics. Lucy, you are so beautiful inside and out. These last two months, though quick, have been so humbling. We love you
