Little mophead ❤️ eating a lolly and playing in the garden so I can tidy the kitchen before I get ready for work!
Annie screams the days away at the minute. Nothing I do or say is good enough, she just screams. Constantly.
She has tantrums pretty much all day every day and I do not have a clue what to do with her.
I try keep her occupied and happy but nothing works. Of course we’ll have a good hour here and there where she’s lovely and such good company but then the rest of the time she’s awful.
Her behaviour in public is atrocious too. She’s always been brilliant and so well behaved but she kicks and screams and throws herself on the floor in the middle of shops and I just don’t have the energy to even deal with those situations so I don’t put us in them unless absolutely necessary.
I’m completely at a loss at the minute. I’ve got so much dragging me down right now and this situation with Annie is making everything worse.
She’ll be 3 in August. Is this the terrible twos finally kicking in?
I feel like such a shit mum. I try keep calm with her but earlier- after almost 2 hours of constant inconsolable screaming I snapped and shouted at her. Nothing “nasty” I just shouted that she needs to stop crying and tell me what’s wrong so I can help her etc.
I’m on the verge of tearing my hair out.
My phone charger stopped working last night so we had to make a trip into town to buy a new one. As I was about to get us ready, the electric went off too! So I had to get us both dressed in the dark and rush out to catch a bus! Obviously Annie had to stop and jump in every puddle! We’ve got to go catch a bus over to my mums soon as well so she can watch Annie while I have my driving lesson! Manic morning so far, hopefully the day will calm down and nothing else will go wrong!
Can’t sleep so I’m totally watching serial killer programs.
There really isn’t anything more fascinating than a criminal profiler.
I can’t wait for my referral to come through. I’m in more pain and I’m more exhausted every day. The entire right hand side of my body is so painful all of the time. I cant even write anymore, I can hardly hold a pen properly. I’m barely even coping anymore. My house is an absolute state, my child is a nightmare with tantrums and my boyfriend is at work almost all the time. Then there’s work- sure, it’s only 16 hours (4x4 hour shifts) but it is breaking me. Then my days off are spent recovering from work, trying to keep Annie happy (it’s getting more difficult to do so) and doing the absolute bare minimum of housework because I just can’t manage doing more. I need like, 2 days completely alone to get all my housework done and catch up on some sleep. If only 😟 I really hope these specialists give me a diagnosis. Then I can focus on ways to help myself feel better and they will know what to give me to help with the pain. I feel so bad for my poor girl having to put up with me at the minute, I’m miserable all the time and we rarely leave the house unless Ian’s home (which isn’t often) because I physically can’t manage it alone. Sorry for the ramble, I just really needed a good moan 😢 also- I’m so completely run down- hence my lovely droopy eye.
awkwardmum I found out that they do an “egg run” and take the donated Easter eggs (they have a trolley inside tesco to donate them) up to the hospital! I never knew that, so lovely!
wolvernome no it’s Scunthorpe tesco haha. I’ve never even heard of Helsby 🙈
We went to Rand Farm Park today! It was lovely. We saw lots of animals and fed them, Annie even held a Guinea Pig and stroked a rabbit! Then we played in the park for a bit and finished the day off with a Tractor ride before we came home 😊
What the fuck is going on at Tesco?! 😕
There was a time when you couldn’t have paid me to watch a James Bond film then all of a sudden they cast Daniel Craig and now I’ll sit and watch them out of choice and thoroughly enjoy them.
We had a lovely day.
Lazed about and had some chocolate this morning. Then we woke Ian up about 3 and he took Annie for a shower cos she was so sticky and gross. We all got ready and went out to the fair!
Then after the fair Annie said she didn’t want to go home yet (I think she was enjoying listening to the Frozen soundtrack!) so we went for a long drive through the villages.
We got to a village called Crowle on our way back round to home and Annie started crying and said her belly was hurting and she needed a wee so we pulled over into a Co-Op car park (the co-op was closed) and as soon as we pulled in, the poor thing was sick everywhere! It was like a fountain. I still can’t believe how much sick actually came out!
She was absolutely covered. Her car seat, clothes, the car, all down the inside of the car door, her blanket and we were about half an hour away from home with no bag, no wipes or tissues or anything!!!
LUCKILY there was an ambulance parked just over the road. One of the paramedics came over to us when she saw us stripping Annie off in the car park and brought us a big roll or tissue, a big handful of wipes, 2 cups of water, a bin bag and a blanket that she told Annie she could keep to make sure she’d be nice and warm in the car on the way back! So I set to work scrubbing Annie down (it was all in her hair 😭) and Ian scrubbed the car seat and car (most of the sick was on the seat liner luckily so once he took that out, it wasn’t too bad to clean) it took us half an hour though!!!
I dread to think what would’ve happened if the ambulance hadn’t been there and the paramedic was the absolute loveliest woman! The Co-Op was shut for bank holiday and we don’t know Crowle so didn’t know if there were any local shops open and there weren’t even any people about to ask! I’d have been knocking on a bloody random door to ask for tissue haha.
Annie was absolutely fine, literally as soon as she’d finished being sick she was happy and laughing again.
So we got back in the car and Annie was singing along to Let it Go (she’s loving the frozen soundtrack!) but she still didn’t want to go home. She asked to go see Nanna instead. So I rang my Mum and told her to get a bath ready! So we gave Annie a quick dunk. We left the sicky clothes, blanket and car seat liner there too for my mum to wash haha (our washer is half knackered so I don’t trust it to wash those things full of sick!) and then we finally came home.
Annie’s tucked up in bed now and she had a really good day. Even being sick was exciting- she loved seeing the ambulance and getting attention from the Paramedic!
Now Ian and I can finally relax. Chinese and a few drinks for us tonight ❤️
We took Annie to the fair for the first time today! She absolutely loved it. ❤️
Ian was on nights last night so we were gonna go to the big park for a late picnic lunch and a play and then over to the fair later but it’s so miserable here today and I’m positive it’s going to rain!
And we were going to the beach tomorrow!
Stupid weather 😟
