Unfortunately it has been a rough few weeks here with the toddler twosome and i haven’t been able to get creative (or even uncreative to be honest) in the kitchen! These are the sort of times it is great to have a well stocked freezer though!
Although i don’t have any new recipes to offer you from my kitchen this week i do have some wonderful links to share…these lovely family bloggers all have fantastic ideas with food for toddler and baby. I hope you find some new favourites!!
It has certainly been an interesting few weeks with teething twins and lots of tantrums…mine included i am afraid! Mother’s Day was perhaps the toughest day of all unfortunately….I’d like to do one of those I had a lovely Mother’s Day posts but i’m sorry to say i didn’t. It was a really tough day behaviour wise and there was no napping and much broken sleep at night….but you know what..that’s ok…because that’s the reality of being a Mum and i know that Mother’s day isn’t really about breakfast in bed…it’s about recognition that you have the most special…yet hardest job in the world…and you never take a day off….not even because it is a ‘special’ day. I had to come to that realisation after much ‘poor me’ type thinking! Once i took the pressure off how the day ‘should’ have been i found i became a lot more content within myself…..or perhaps that was the wine…..
Anyway…we got through, there were some special moments of course… my grown up teen bought me a lovely little ring with her hard earned after school job paypacket…very special and reminds me that she is growing into a beautiful young woman now…she even cleaned the pantry and fridge for me!(i suspect because they are 2 of the things i have been moaning about not getting to this week…ooops!) My patient partner cooked a lovely lamb roast and helped to mop up the flow of tears! I think it was just the culmination of a rough few weeks and i had hoped that somehow the toddler twosome would realise Mummy needed a ‘good’ day on Sunday….not to much to expect from 22 month olds i don’t think, hehe!
It was beautiful weather though and in the interests of keeping the toddler twosome with smiles on their faces i decided we all needed to get messy in the sunshine…so out came the slime!What else would you want to do on Mother’s Day but get slimed?
