Well, it has again been a while, I am currently listening to my youngest 2 children fighting in their sister's bedroom, somewhere they are not supposed to be! While she herself sits on the couch intently watching the television. It is common place in this house that she is sat in front of one Screen or another, she will no doubt yell at me at a later date because her brother and sister made the constant mess in her room, and as such she will not be the one cleaning it. No matter how much goes on it only takes 1 minute of someone other than her being in that room for her to claim it was all them and she WILL NOT fix it. There will be a BIG purge very soon of all things clothing and toys alike from her space because I CAN NOT keep looking at it, and she needs to learn to shoulder some responsibility for her actions. She doesn't look after anything even those things she absolutely LOVES, she has no concept of expense or gratitude at being able to have those things.
I have no idea how to parent her and I am losing touch with parenting all of my kids at the moment.
I am sick to fucking death of breast feeding the youngest to sleep EVERY FUCKING NIGHT... and even worse is that she just doesn't know how to fall asleep without the breast, she has started feeding when she gets tired and not falling asleep, which makes for a very LONG chewing session and an intensely painful breast and pissed off mumma.
The boy is becoming a struggle to keep entertained, and out of the 'not for you' zone.
Maybe playgroup once a week will help with that this year?
I have been creating a little today, it has been nice to find the time and mind space for it. It makes more room for new ideas to flood into my head and I am thrilled at the prospect of being able to implement some of them, although that may be a while off yet.
