Learning how to parent, every day. Yesterday was not a good day, to say the least. I'm. To even sure why, but we were all in bad moods and both boys were being particularly defiant, and driving me crazy. We all made some bad choices, and we all lost our tempers, but at bedtime we snuggled up and apologised. I'm trying to teach the boys about forgiveness at the moment, even at such a young age. Today was a much better day, we all took naps, listened to music, and played together. They boys ate all their dinner, and even got a treat for dessert for behaving while I cooked. I filled out forms and listened to them play in the bath with their Daddy, laughing and squealing. I'm learning that some days are better than others, and that that's okay. I'm learning just as much as the boys are in terms of behaviour and discipline.

Growing two healthy happy boys (a stretch, I know, but I have a seriously black thumb!) Though, granted, my wonderful Mama does a fair hand. I'm still breastfeeding Joshua, despite a few comments recently, but as long as he wants it I'm happy to continue. I think we'll go for two years then reassess, if we last that long. He's still content nursing, and it's the easiest way to settle him for a nap too. It's a pretty special bond, time just us two (he only nurses very early morning, after lunch/before nap and before bed, so Daniel's always asleep)

Buying fall "essentials". We went shopping with my parents earlier this week, shoes for Daniel, jumpers & hats, pyjamas for Joshua & cosy socks for Mama! I've also been super organised & started ordering Christmas presents already! I know, I hate me too!

Loving Justin Timberlake's new album, Vitamin Water (especially dragon fruit flavour) & oxblood red everything.

Wishing time would slow down just a little. This month is Daniel's half birthday, and I just wrote out his school registration. Hold me. Joshua's growing, & finally fitting in to 12month clothing and starting to show his quirky little personality a little more. Of course I'm biased, but he's crazy adorable!

Linking up with Randalin over at Harvesting Kale

Lots of Love

  2. Totally identify with your first paragraph, we had a particularly bad day yesterday too and I went to bed feeling like the worst mum ever, makes me feel better to know I'm not alone! Also with you on the bfing, Joshua is still just a baby really, so lovely to hear you are confident to carry on - the comments can be tough x

  3. My two are 18 and 12, and I'm still learning how to be a parent everyday. Lovely to hear that you are continuing to breastfeed as the right thing for the two of you.
