I guess I'm not gaining the mother of the year award anytime soon, as I failed miserably whilst D1 and little J were here. It was a VERY LONG two weeks and I have to admit my patients wore really thin. D1 needed some mummy time as she was in a bad head space. So from the day she arrived we pampered her and little J in everyway imaginable. After the first week I started to be a bit snappy, Bear gave me walk by swats to calm me down.
By last Sunday we had both lost it. Running late getting ready for church, little J announced to his Mum "I'm hungry". D1 had taken herself off to bed, so said ask Nanny to make you something to eat. Snappy Nanny yelled I don't have time we need to leave in 5 minutes. So D1 said something in retaliation which I didn't quite hear. On returning home we had a sink full of dirty dishes to face. Bear was ropable as his usual Sunday is to come home and make scones for lunch. Then something else happened which I didn't quite see. Luckily little J was in the bedroom with his mum as Bear let the C**t word rip as he almost tripped over something which was in his way. That is one word I CAN NOT stand, he was so angry he said he wouldn't make scones for lunch yet reneged after a while. I washed all the dishes whilst he prepared the scones, leaving some on the sink in his way. Cheekily I said I better dry them before you call me a C**t for being in your way. Oh boy I lived to regret that, he took the wooden spoon and let fly on my poor bottom... whack, whack whack.....OUCH! Thank goodness D1s hearing isn't very good, as its a wonder she didn't come out asking what was happening. The next three days went by in a whirl before we sent D1 and little J home in better moods all round.
Bear and I went inside after waving good bye with a sigh of relief. Then Bear dragged me into the bedroom for a well deserved spanking with the cricket bat followed by some tender loving care.
We really do love our daughter just that its trying having to do absolutely everything when she visits. Guess that's what families are like though.
At least I made it back to blogland in time for the cookie exchange which was heaps of fun. Found so many delicious recipes which I'm keen to try. Will catch up on reading everyone's posts over the next few days.
Enjoy your weekend.
Hugs Lindy xx
