A far cry from halcyon days of skipping about in woods and playing by rivers. My 13 year old is currently having a wild time struggling with everything, and last night after we turned off Netflix she became so enraged she emptied everything on to her floor and screamed how she hated us all. Classic 13 year old times a million because there’s now no escapes from the mundane.
On the flip side I had the 3 yr old toddler in bed with me all night refusing to accept I no longer wanted to breastfeed him. Like his sister, he won as I gave in.
At least we got sleep until our 10 yr old, middle child, woke at 6 am having a paddy about pretty much everything from her fringe to her constant hunger for sugar, and wanting to see friends now!!
