Back to reality

August 8, 2011

You know how some days you feel like super mum? Everything goes perfectly, the kids are well behaved, you effortlessly multi task. You feel you can accomplish anything. Be anything.

Well this wasn’t one of those days.

I should have been in a great mood beacuse I started the day with a lie in. When I woke up at 9.30 all was quiet and peaceful. But today I’ve had a huge work strop. No it’s not me going back to work – it’s my husband. He’s had two weeks off. We had a huge list of jobs to do and have, of course, done none of them. Instead we’ve had lots of time to play with the girls, and just enjoy time as a family.

I have no right to be grumpy. It was his turn – he had it pencilled in. We try to make sure only one of us is in a bad mood at a time. It’s made worse by the fact it’s a week of lates. We’re lucky at the moment that at least he doesn’t have to work nights. But with lates I have the whole evening on my own. Dinner, bath, bed – they’re all much easier when there are two people on duty.

So I totally over reacted over a broken cup. I only bought it a couple of weeks ago and it really cheered me up. I should have known I can’t have nice things. I’m really clumsy and break on average a cup or plate every two weeks or so. I kept the cup on the shelf for a few weeks and only used it a few times. It should have stayed there. I got over confident. Today I let one of the babies hold it, I don’t know why, she grabbed hold of it and I was only giving her half my attention. Of course it broke.

So was I upset over a broken cup – or over a return to normality? A mixture of both I suppose. I know everything will be fine. I’ll get used to the routine. It’s just – 3 children are so much easier and more fun when there are two of you.
