Well it's nearly lunchtime and I have spent the last 2 hours contending with a very stroppy 15 month old who refused to sleep or do anything without holding on to "Bawoon". It's his red balloon with a face that I drew on to it. He is completely obsessed with it. So I performed the horrible mummy job and left him in his cot to cry himself to sleep but he would get himself so worked up and start gagging, virtually hyperventilating, so I had to get him up once or twice. He still didn't get bawoon though, I gave him a ball as a compromise and in the end it was his morning tea time, when he would normally be getting up from his sleep, so he had morning tea, a drink and a quick play and cuddle and back to bed again. Fingers crossed it appears to be working.
I think Mr Bawoon Face might have to move out... He might take a needle with him and "pop" out for a bit while Dex is asleep. Sheesh. I'm so mean. But look how manky he is. Bits of bananna on him and his eyes are getting all smudgey.
So the toddler tantrums are definitely on their way, right as we decide that we could be convinced to have another baby in the near future. Timing is everything.
My first article on Kiwi Mummy Blogs is up today, it's on Time Management. Something that is pretty dang important to me at the moment. I have been trying very hard to take my own advice and work on keeping house tidy, getting jobs done AND working 8 hours a week and having some mummy time and mummy/daddy time. It's a work in progress but I am getting there!!
Anyway, check out my first article here, at http://www.kiwimummyblogs.co.nz/go-ask-your-mother/mummy-time-management-finding-time-for-you/ Love to have your feedback!
I also have a goal to get to 20 followers by the end of the year. I may well be pinning my hopes a little too high, but hey, a goal is a goal. So if you have a blog and you like my blog, would you put me on your list so people can see it? If you let me know, and I will do the same for you, although I think most are on my main page already.
Better go do something productive before tornado child is up again.
