Period, depression and moody kids is not a good combination I know. As I said earlier I am struggling at the moment but if it wasn’t for my kids I think I would’ve been even deeper down…
My girls had to put up with my moodiness and my screams this week which I regret more than I could say in words. I guess as parents we all go through this kind of moments. The worse bit is the fact that I don’t have someone that can balance me around. I think that when hubby is around it’s a lot easier.
The weather was very kind this week though so we spent quite a lot of time outside – mostly in the garden but we did go for walks around the town too. The sun did help to keep us above the line and the girls loved spending time out…playing with the bowl, playing in mud and running around.
They play so nicely together. Well most of the time 🙂 when Kara is not annoyed with the fact that Anastasia wants to take everything she puts her hands on or when they don’t scream at each other. But kids are kids and things like this are normal.
I love the way they pretend play though…so many games! Playing school, going to the doctor,going on holiday…It is quite interesting to sit back and listen to the things they say to each other. Especially my eldest…a real statement to my parenting actually…and by watching them play I see the things I did wrong too.
I try to make sure my girls are never sad but then when they watch my sad moments it’s normal for them to copy me. I tell them always how much I love them and they both come and give me hugs and say the same thing. Even my 2 year old does it although from her mouth sounds more like “lobed you mummy” 🙂 She is such a happy child and I wish we could all have her smile and laugh.
“But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”
