This Will Pass.


It feels like we've been battling the sickies in this house for forever.. Starting with James and his cold/tonsillitis, then Anthony and the flu, me and my cold and now Emilie has been trying to battle a stomach bug for over a week. For two days now I thought we were getting the better of it but today the vomiting and diarrhea has returned. Needless to say that for someone with Emetophobia like myself, I am literally living out my hell. 




Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all those blogs out there sometimes make motherhood look like a walk in the park. Happy smiling children, stress free parents and a perfectly clean home.. I've been guilty myself of posting the 'best' photos to facebook or tweeting the 'good' parts of our day. If you could see me now though. Hair unbrushed, my outfit doesn't match, a sleeping baby on my chest. I'm tired, stressed and I'm pretty sure I needed a shower yesterday. James has thrown about five tantrums today, his feet are dirty and he ate cereals for lunch. My laundry basket is over flowing (hence the mis-matched outfit.)  It's 3.30pm and I've got no idea what I'm going to cook for dinner. It's during the testing times that I have to sit and remind myself that this will pass. One day I will have two grown children and I'll miss weeks like these.. 

Being a mother definitely isn't the most glamorous job in the world but it's definitely worth it.

  1. It will pass, one thing I learned when mine were younger is you can get through more than you ever thought you could. :)
