There it is..... Up ahead, I think I see it.... Is that light at the end of the tunnel!
To say that I have been walking around in a haze of dirty nappies, washing piles taller than me, a two year old who throws tantrums worthy of an Oscar nomination and days where I don't seem to have time to get out of my pyjamas for the last, hmmm, 10 weeks is an understatement!
Yesterday I finally felt like I had achieved something! And no, I didn't get the bed made, the washing done, the toilets cleaned nor did I have dinner ready and waiting when husband got home. What I achieved was so much better than all of these things put together.
This is what happened....
1 :: Baby H managed a car trip to Master N's swimming lessons without screaming blue murder the whole way, this made Mummy much less frazzled upon arrival!
2 :: Master N was actually excited about going to his swimming lesson and there was no screaming or clinging to me for dear life as I walked him out to the pool.
3 :: Baby H then sat peacefully in the car - no screaming - on our drive to the Shopping Centre.
4 :: Both the boys were very well behaved whilst I got everything done that needed doing - a stress free trip around Westfield, who would have thought!
5 :: Baby H then totally outdid himself and fell asleep in the car on the way home from the Shopping Centre.
Ever since we bought Baby H home from the hospital he has hated the car, the minute you put him in the car set he bellows like a little bull. So bad in fact that I generally sit in the back in between the two children to try and minimise the screaming. Him not screaming in the car was a huge step for us!
I am not a hard to please person as you can see, it's the simple things! Maybe I will now venture out of the house a little bit more!
