Needs banning. Or needs experience points and levelling up options to make it bearable.
And honestly? #1 Son was an angel comparatively and Tiny Tyrant wasn’t a total monster type creature.
He is now kitted out for school for a while. Multiple long sleeved tops, a few new trousers and a new pair of trainers. With. Laces.
That isn’t going to be a massive problem or anything.
He saw these and fell in love. Me, not being a total bloody idiot, tried to persuade him to have the black/purple/rainbow ones in non-Adidas.
It turns out the poor boy has inherited my wide feet.
They were agonising to him. Another mom told me Adidas were the only ones that helped her wide-footed offspring.
I couldn’t say no could I? So again, not having come down in the last shower, I asked the sales woman for tips to keep them from being immediately destroyed.
She sold me some protective spray (and two coats have already been applied) and some cleaning fluid. Who knows how long it will last? But at least I know I made an effort.
TT missed her usual nap (between 10-11 go down time) and cat-napped for about 20 minutes in the buggy. This was a first.
Unfortunately it backfired on us spectacularly and she refused an afternoon nap.
Which meant a completely irrational and inconsolable toddler from roughly 16:30 until bedtime.
Ended up giving her an emergency calm down bath at 18:15 to chill her the heck out.
And it’s been over a fortnight since she went on hunger strike. She won’t eat anything that’s not a breakfast waffle or soggy Froot Loops. Her solid nappies are not. And are green. So I got desperate.
Normally at weekends I leave the evening meal to daddy. But tonight I took over and created the only goddamned thing that she will eat.
Which led to the following musing.
Before I became a parent, I *swore* my children would eat healthy. That junk food would be an *occasional* treat.
That we would cook for them.
So I managed to make their baby food. That was it.
With one child neophobic (thanks autism) and one child on full out hunger strike (thanks teeth) I am making Kraft (box) mac and cheese with added cream cheese and full fat milk. And I’m doing a massive dance that BOTH children ate half a portion each.
I’m inwardly cringing at how bland and cardboardy it tastes but it’s food.
And my back has given out again. Imma gonna eat dinner, watch Game of Thrones and knit test swatches.
