    Today I nearly cried in a car park. We had a trying morning. My tiny 3-year-old-turned-teenager was extra defiant. Everything I suggested (getting out of bed, putting on clothes, eating breakfast) was met with a shouted “I-don’t-want-to!” I’m not sure what’s causing these big emotions, but she’s certainly having trouble dealing with them at the moment. Clothes were argued over, breakfast was thrown on the floor. The baby decided to poop just after I’d got her dressed and was about to (finally) eat something myself. We were late leaving the house, the car park I initially chose only accepted change and I didn’t have any, so I had to move the car and find another one. And when I’d finally parked up and got everyone out, I suddenly realised I couldn’t find the adaptors to attach the car-seat to the pram.
    I nearly lost it.
    I had no baby carrier (usually it’s in the boot, but we took it out last weekend to use it) and no way of carrying the car seat and changing bag and keeping an eye on a toddler. I had a little count to 5 moment and double checked under the rain cover. Sure enough, the adaptors were there. Our day was saved. I’m not sure where I’m going with this, except to say that some days this motherhood gig is hard. Really hard. But at the end of the day, we muddle through and all our babies need is us. Not the play-dates and trips and all the other stuff. Just love and attention. And food, I guess. And sometimes we need that reminder! ♥️ #motherhood #honestmotherhood #unrelatedpicturethatmakesmefeelcalm 😂

    Ah I miss the snow! I miss the beautiful pristine whiteness, the softening curves that it covers everything in, the magical sparkles, that lovely muffled quiet it brings. But most of all, I love the hiatus it means from everyday life ✨ ❄️ (at least here in England, where everything grinds to a halt when it snows 🤪) #snowday #snowplacelikehome #adventureswithtuppence
