Today Won Me…


What an absolute shit Monday.

Pure shite.

One of those Mondays it just feels you did absolutely nothing right.

I was drenched doing the school run this morning because like an eejit I sauntered out in a light jacket with no hood… in Ireland…in November. Hello common sense??

The Youngest was like a bag of rats after pre-school.  Jesus I couldn’t do anything right for him. Even the way I presented him with his yogurt was apparently wrong!

The Pièce de résistance was the the Eldest telling me the teacher wanted a word. Heart sunk. It’s like being back in school yourself all over again and being sent to the principals office! Cue bollocking about how he doesn’t concentrate. 

Also cue me for the following four hours worrying, crying, freaking out and googling everything under the sun to find a “cure” for my child! 

I’ve since calmed down about that part. Yes,  he is absolutely shite at concentrating. But he’s five and a half. He’ll get there. I needn’t write him off just yet. Yes it’s frustrating as hell doing homework with him and there are days I want to crawl into bed with a bottle of vodka afterwards, but we get there..eventually.

We had about 572 tantrums between the two of them in the afternoon. 

The cat pissed all over his bed.

It’s 7.20 and I’ve already got the kids asleep because today just needs to end.

Screw it. I’m having a large glass of wine..

    Oh dear. That kinda sounds like my Monday, my eldest is always telling me ‘no’ for everything, like you infant even give him a yogurt right, yet anything daddy does is perfect…. We even ended up taking my youngest to a&e! All in all we had a rubbish Monday too.
