Going Grey

So I know I've been missing from blogging lately - life happened and I just couldn't keep up.

The last 18 months have been rough emotionally, draining to the point all I want to do is crawl into bed and sleep a lot. My best friend moved to the UK, there's a hole in my life that I can't seem to fill, well that's a whole different post altogether.

Today I'm going grey because my child has turned into a nightmare. One would think we don't discipline him at all, 2 weeks ago i get a note, he doesn't know bathroom etiquette, wetting the floor, grabbing towels from people and possibly even weeing on the floor. In response to which I made him clean our bathroom at home for a week.

On Friday he wears his new watch to school and after warning him not to take it off - he came home without it. It's gone. He also mentioned that he magically has no pencils or twisties left - after I replaced them at the beginning of the term (3 weeks ago). Today he came home with a note that he's not listening to the teacher and blatantly disrespecting her. So now he will have no TV for a week and has lost his tuck money for Friday to buy new twisties with.

I actually don't know what to do anymore, he's cheeky to me as well, so cheeky that i am sometimes in tears about how rude he is to me.

Please tell me I'm not alone in this and that this is normal behavior for a 6/7 year old? Is this what the next 10/15 years of my life are going to be like? Because if it is I will certainly be grey before I turn 32 (I just turned 31 a week and a bit ago).

HELP ME ......


Photo Shoot 2016

So as per our annual tradition we had another photo shoot this year - I'm stunned by how much the children have grown. This year was special because my bestest was here from the UK and we included her in the Shoot.
