Thank you for all your kind words after my outpouring of frustration on here the other day. Things can seem pretty bleak when you’re sleep deprived and stuck at home with a poorly one, whilst also having to balance the needs of their sister, plus work obligations. There’s no such thing as time off when you’re self employed and in the middle of trying to remortgage your house!
I’m delighted to say that Master C finally seems to be over the sickness bug that knocked him low for a week. As a result his general mood has improved significantly, making life somewhat easier. Eating is still a battle – magnified by the fact that he’s trying to build himself back up after a week of being ill. He’s therefore constantly hungry, but only wanting to eat a very narrow range of things. Frustrating for both me and him.
I am also now armed with a couple of new books that people reading this recommended to try to help me understand his behaviour better. Just as soon as I’ve caught up on sleep I’ll be sitting down with both of these and trying to get my head around why he does what he does, and what I can do to help him more.
One of the nicest thing to have come out of the last week has to be this postcard which appeared on my doormat yesterday. Sent by my wonderful sister, it’s a perfect reminder that all us mums that are trying to keep it all together when everything goes to pot around us are “doing a grand job”, even if no one stops to tell us.
Thanks Sis for the reminder. x
