New

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

because it is the new year, shiny and sparkly 2018! Happy new year to all my readers, let’s have a good one or just a week to get over the b***s**t!

I received as a present four tickets for me, hubby and the boys to go to the panatomine. Now, I haven’t been  before for a couple of reasons. 1. it is bloody expensive and 2. the times I thought about it was with my eldest but there was no way in hell he would spend ten minutes sitting down. He would be a nightmare and potentially run around everywhere.

So, this year we went to our local theatre and watched Cinderella (in all honesty I am envious that my mum who got me the tickets opted for herself tickets to see madness. I think she had the better deal of getting to seeing Madness tribute act. Which I am pretty sure both my kids would of enjoyed, lol).

Anyway, the boys still loved it as it was entertaining for them. Here is the thing that annoyed me when viewing the performance,  considering that it appeared that most of the audience was a younger then say 10 they said, ‘smash your face in’ and ‘stupid’ which I am not sure whether it was really appropriate, maybe it is, I don’t know. But for me I felt a bit uncomfortable that one of the actors said it to a six year old, now I have a six year old and lucky it wasn’t him because I  would not of been happy at all. Still, it was an experience and something different especially after the christmas climax.

The lies you tell as a parent

Hey readers,

Do you ever tell little white lies as a parent because I sure do, anything to keep my life a little bit easier. I am now going to confess some of my little white lies I have told my children.

Santa claus is real so you best be good because he is watching you. He is everywhere and knows everything.

Things that you think are so easy but when you are a parent things happen to be totally different. Take for instant the tablet and ok I do actually only have one as hubby won’t let me get two because he wants to teach the boys to share. I on the other hand would totally buy another tablet because you know what my ears can’t be arsed to listen to the petty squabbling. I like a simple life, call me what you want, life is much better when it is quiet. So, if I can’t get a second tablet then alternative to get a quiet life is to sometimes tell a little lie, ‘sorry but the battery of the tablet is died.’ Even though the tablet itself has 90% battery life left, I just simply can not be f**ked with it sometimes. I would rather watch a repeated episode of Topsy and Tim, that quite frankly is saying something!

Sometimes, I can’t face living my home with two kids because it is a chore or I can tell they are going to be grade A a**eholes. So, I may *ahem* say I can’t do xyz because we have no money.

This is more of a seasonal white lie but around Christmas time the main threat that are give my children is that if they do not behave then I will ring santa and he won’t deliver any presents. It is a beautiful threat because it is actually one that they take very seriously, mhahahahaha!

My youngest hates anything veggie or fruit if he can visually see it. He asks when we have spaghetti bolognese is there any vegetables in the food, of course there is none it is just the sauce.

When I am struggling to stay awake I stick a movie on for the kids and snuggle down with them whilst sneakily getting some shut eye. I don’t know why but kids have this super sense when your trying to sleep to jump all over you or constantly ask questions, such as. ‘are you awake mummy?’ I reply, ‘ of course I am awake I am just resting my eyes’. Honest!

When you don’t want an argument with your child but they want an answer, simple just say, ‘we’ll see’.

When out and about particularly on public transport the child asks when will we get there. Always respond with we’re nearly there, even if it is another 20 minutes to reach the destination.

Anytime a child touches something breakable or anything fancy, I reply if you touch it will break.

Well come back another time is a typical response to a question when you know damn well there is no change we will.

The child asks, ‘what are you doing mummy?’ mummy replies,  ‘i’m only having a drink I will be in a minute’. When secretly I am scoffing all the chocolate 😉

Sometimes, to get back at daddy because the sod has had yet another glorious lie in I tell the kids, ‘wake up daddy he is much  better at doing xyz’ and I sit back grinning on the sofa whilst over hearing the boys come running into daddy’s bedroom screaming at the top of their voices and bouncing all over the bed. *evil mummy8

Over! 

Hey readers,

My word of the week is: 

because just like that Christmas is all done and dusted for another year. We had a lovely time at home with the boys. They loved getting new toys.
The eldest being autisitic struggled at the end of Christmas day. The reality of this is that he had a meltdown for three hours screaming, shouting, spitting, biting. This is the reality of living with an autisitic.
However, Boxing day was much perfered for him as there was no surprises and I focused on a routine for him so he felt safe. 

We now are working our way through building all the Lego! 
It also has been lovely to indulge in the food and I have eaten a fair few mince pies this week that I suspect that I may turn into one, haha! 
Hope you have had a lovely week,

Tired 

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

tired 2

 

It is the final week and like every end of term I am exhausted. I think my eldest is too and could do with a break from over thinking everything.

A positive for us this week is I got to see my eldest perform in his play and he even had two lines. He was dressed as a shepherd. He looks so sweet when on stage.

My youngest at nursery christmas had a  sing a long, which he absolutely loved as he love  Christmas songs. He is a massive fan of music and dance, he really puts his heart and soul into it.

Yesterday we made some cute and fairly simple reindeer cookies, which was fun because it got both boys in the festive period.

Now, all I need to do is get cracking on with all the wrapping, which we be mostly done tonight hopefully whilst watching The Last Leg.

How to make it

1) Glue the ends of the popsicles together then stick them together in the shape of a tree.

2) Then add your glitter and sequins. At this point I found some stick on stars to put on top of the trees.

3) I then put the trees in the oven for the afternoon set at 45c, that allowed plenty of time to dry.

4) Next I put punch hole on the top and then threaded some string through, tied it into a not.

5) Voila there you have a tree decoration to hang on the tree.
