When I have had a good sleep I am so much more patient and calm and kind. I turn into a bit of a grumpy monster when I haven’t had enough sleep, which is going to make me no fun to be around for the foreseeable future. I was thinking about it this morning when my boy was tormenting me with one of his games. I realised the same game the day before had brought out a totally different reaction in me. He had a couple of spoons and was roaming around the house banging on different things and saying ‘music mummy, music’. Yesterday I was feeling well rested and I thought, how cute he is using his imagination and being creative and isn’t that wonderful. Today I just wanted to scream ‘shut up with that awful noise, it’s giving mummy a headache!’ I restrained myself though and didn’t say that out loud. I just directed him to a new game that was less annoying.
After I’d had a nap I mustered up the energy to do some gardening with Little Man. We had a scrappy looking patch of dirt that I thought would be great for him to take ownership of and make prettier, or possibly make look worse, we’ll see! It’s nice for him to have his own garden bed so that when he’s outside he has a spot to dig up. We went for a trip to the nursery and picked out flowers and a strawberry plant and we’ll water them and watch them grow.if you liked this post, you may also like:/span>
