Managing The Mayhem

Play dates – Love em or hate em?

Personally I love them, most of the time.

On a good day the little ones play so nicely you could almost forget they were there, leaving you to sip coffee and swap gossip with another grown up in peace – Bliss.

More typically however coffee sips are punctuated with shouts of “I’m not your best friend” “Mummy….” “I had it first” “Can I have a biscuit” Then there is the mess and carnage to deal with after. Recently Hubby and I had to re do every jigsaw puzzle that my 4 year old owns and out of 12 puzzles we managed to complete 3 without a detailed, forensic style, search of the bedrooms. We are still missing pieces for 3 Puzzles!

Me. He & Them

“She Ate Really Well Today…”

I am the mother of a fussy eater. Not sure where she gets it from but clearly not from me because I have never met a meal I didn’t like. I’ve read books. I’ve read blogs. Spoke to fellow mums of fussy eaters and taken on board their advice: reduce milk, no snacks, star chart, etc etc. Meals are a constant battle with the only constant being the pasta noodles with butter that she will eat. She’s also very fidgety, knocking food and drink onto the floor. So I have decided to extend her nursery day to include lunch; with the hope that Little Miss A will succumb to peer pressure and sit still. And eat. I get a report when I pick her and on this particular day I get nothing but rave reviews: “She ate really well today! Chicken! Broccoli! Almost all the rice!”. I must admit, I was a bit sceptical as Little Miss A despises meat but I thought I’d give them the benefit of the doubt; that’s what I pay the exorbitant school fees for after all. Until I got home and found chicken in the pocket of her school uniform.

Learning more about myself

Now, I attempted to blog yesterday but I ended up so busy I never finished my post and I’m very glad I didn’t. I was in a bad place yesterday, tired, upset and just generally struggling. It would have been a very depressing post to read. However, now I can post about how I was in that place and how I stepped out of it.
