It’s been a little quiet here because it’s been a little noisy in my life.
Having two children under two is incredibly hard work. I knew it would be and I am not surprised. It’s no more difficult than I anticipated.
My head hurts. Trev hasn’t been home in time to help with bedtime for days, and Astrid keeps screaming and screaming and nothing calms her down. Iris has been suffering with constipation and keeps crying and saying ‘poo hurts’. She wakes up several times a night, very briefly, to cry out.
I have a million things to do, including finishing several blog posts that have been sitting in my drafts folder for quite a while.
I just can’t do it. There’s no time.
So forgive me, while I get better at this, for being so quiet. Don’t go away. I’ll be back when Iris has done her poo, Astrid has finally burped and my headache has gone away.
In the meantime Peppa Pig will be parenting Iris for me while I beg Astrid to just be quiet for just five minutes pretty please.
