Good cop, bad cop

How stressed out can you get mummy today???

Very stressed out…

Do you ever get them moments where you hate your children? You love them, but god they can send you into a metal home quicker than anything!!

So me being the good cop, I gave them each two pound pocket money, I suggested we walked down the shops to buy perhaps a small toy, I have come down the stairs ready to go….

Guess what….

You guest it, no ones dressed let alone got their shoes on!!! Even my neighbors got their shoes on after the final 1000 time I had shouted at the children!!

I knew from that moment that maybe going out was a bad idea!!

We get to the shops, we have melt downs, tantrums, crying on the floor, screaming as loud as they can. I was so embarrassed that I just carried on, safe to say they didn’t get anything from the shops so I will be using that £6 for a bottle of wine!!!!!!

I do get days when I think geeze why don’t my kids hate me, I shout more than Sargent major!!

There is also a soft play centre called the Mammoth Play Ark.

We had a fantastic day, We had cheeky monkey’s climbing all over our car, we had tigers brush past the car (he definitely was looking angry at us, as the park ranger told me not to stop and keep driving at him otherwise he will damage my car, that was a scary moment….

There is a couple of restaurant on site, but it is always nice to have a picnic.

Woburn offtern hold event days, we happened to go when peppa pig was visiting, Elle isn’t normally a fan of costumes, but today she decided she wanted to say hello.

Mikey was the most excited to see peppa pig, he ran up to her and he told her I love you, then shouting it’s definitely the real peppa pig Elle…. cuteness.

Swan Boats, first time the twins have ever been on boats, and what an awesome experience for them! It wasn’t for me, but for them it was great fun.

I can’t do small boats in water, specially when you have children like mine that have no fear, and start rocking from side to side ahhhhh.

It really is a wonderful day out, you can go around as many times as you want, and experience different points of the Day.

We saw some funny moments, specially when a bear was pushing a car, and some awww moments when we saw lots of baby monkey.

Easter Fun

Happy Easter to you all.

We have had an exciting fun day filled with chicks, bunny’s and of course lots of chocolate!

So far in three days we have made Easter bonnets, been to Stowe house and the le manior.

We have been lucky enough to go on 2 egg hunts in two very luxurious places on our door step.

The children made some special Easter bonnets to take to our egg hunts.

Easter isn’t about chocolate, winning egg hunts. It’s about being with loved ones that you take your journey with, making memories and being happy are far more important…

Happy Easter love me, Marley, Elle and Mikey ❤

How hard is it being a single mum to 3

No one said being a mother was easy, but being a single mother to 3 children definitely isn’t easy. It’s not like you can lock yourself in the bathroom for a five minute chill out, you sit in the bathroom, door slings open;

“what you doing mummy”

” Are you going to be long mummy”

“I need a pretend wee mummy”

” I will wait outside the door and keep asking you the same questions mummy”

It’s like my children think they will miss out on something, yes kids called being on your own for two minutes, it’s called piece and quite, it’s called LEAVE ME ALONE for two minutes…..

However I am lucky, my parents and sisters have my kids one weekend a month, so I can get my sanity back and survive the next 3 weeks! I would be lost with out their help and support.

Being a single mum is a very tiring and never ending job, it can be a lonely one to, there is no one to give you a break in the day, no one to help you with housework, cook dinner, you even have to run your own bath!!!!!

Many single mums cope, I honestly believed I would never cope as a single parent, it scared me the thought of being a single mother, what if I failed…..what if I got it wrong…..the truth is I cry most days because my kids shout they hate me, because their socks didn’t match, but I know deep inside everything I do, I do for them, their is days when I feel truly burnt out and don’t want to wake up the next day.

But when my three babies say they love me and I’m the best, I know deep very deep down they do appreciate everything I do for then, and know I try my hardest to get it right. ❤

Happy 3rd Birthday Twinkies

So we are back!!! 

Look who have turned 3 years old. I will never believe how fast time has flown. They both have their own cheeky personality. We are now coming back to the blogging world so watch this space 🙂 

Time should stand still!!

Why are the days, weeks, months even the years going so quick???
  Is it because I’m getting older?  Have days got shorter, everything feels like it is speeding up!!
  All these precious moments are passing me by to quick never enough time to enjoy it!!

Feeling sad that my twins will be one in 2 weeks, they were these small baby’s laying in my arms not so long ago and now they are these crazy baby’s that like to pull chunks out of your head, like to wipe there snotty noses on you when your not looking, thinking there giving you these loving cuddles, arguing, fighting over toys,  they are so demanding at the age of 1, were have those sweet and innocent non demanding baby’s gone!!!

  I felt tearful the other day when I was packing all there tiny baby clothes, you always wonder to yourself were they really that small?!  Do I really have to get rid of these beautiful small clothes, can’t I just have another set of twin baby’s……..No that’s it for us no more children, perhaps this is why it’s going so fast I’m trying to cling onto them being baby’s!!!

I can’t believe Marley will be 5 this year feels like yesterday I had him and the twins!!
This time last year I was size of a whale, complaining how uncomfortable I was, now I want that moment back, the moment I saw them for the first time, feels like it was last night!!

Mikey is now walking, and Elle just learnt to stand, it’s all moving to quickly.

Don’t ever wish life away, one day you be sat thinking wish the years would slow down,  before I know it they will all be leaving home and having there children…… 😦

Love you Marley, Mikey, Elle the 3 of you will always be my baby’s!!!
