BLOG BREAK

Hi everyone, I thought I’d better to a quick post to inform you of what’s been happening and why I’ve been blog silent!

Last week, the husband and children did a 6 hour road trip to visit the grandparents while I stayed home to attend face-to-face classes for one of my courses. I had 4 nights to myself and I have to admit that it was like a holiday without a husband and children. I got to eat whatever I wanted and whenever I wanted. I could throw my dirty clothes on the bathroom floor without worrying about being a good role model. I binged on chips, ice cream and takeaway. I went out to the movies and had dinners with girlfriends. I slept in! It was so nice being alone for a few days. But I did miss them and it felt weird not having any responsibilities. It was also strange not having a body to warm my cold feet at night.

A day after returning from the road trip, my 4 year old son threw a tantrum when I made him have quiet time and said no to screen time. He screamed “I know you don’t love me and you wish I wasn’t never born and that’s why you don’t let me do anything and I can’t watch tv.” Heavy, right? How the hell do you respond to that?! I tried giving him a cuddle to calm him down. Eventually, I asked if he wanted a bath and that stopped the tantrum and tears. We had a chat afterwards about how hurtful his words were. I’ll admit his tantrum had me wishing for an extended holiday.

Anyhow, other than being bogged down with studies and family commitments, I don’t really have a moment to spare. So this post is just to let you know that I’ll probably be absent from social media and blogging for a while. Until I post again, keep well and happy folks!

  1. Toddlers are so dramatic. I have a vivid memory of my mother telling me I couldn’t have something and then crying my eyes out while hugging the cat and telling him he was the only one who loved me. Parenting is not for the faint hearted. Hang in there!
