Its starting to become a struggle

We are getting to the point where I am struggling, having my family here 24/7

This is not helped by the fact I am not sleeping properly, I am often going to sleep at 6am, my partner is being amazing and letting me sleep, but then I get up at midday and the whole process starts again.

OK, so I might not be around them 24 hours a day, but it is starting to feel like it now. Especially at the moment, when there is no school work to be done, as we are now on Easter Holidays.

On a brighter note though Monkey had a great birthday considering, he still managed to get 2 lego sets, which have kept him entertained now for a few days. The sun is shinning and we have a balcony, alright its small but its better than nothing, at the very least we can have the door open to let the air in.

Next Monday the UK government are going to let us know if we are going to continue the lockdown, I want them to say nop, go back to life as normal and have fun, but given that our death total is rising still I think we are going to be like this till the end of April at the least, with possibly further measures taken, as for some reason people seem to think its alright to go and hang out at the beach.

    Thinking of you! It has been dark and gloomy here except for 3 days of this 25 day shelter-in-place. It doesn’t help at all! Hoping for an end to this soon for everyone.

    Please hang in there- it is needed for your own safety and for the family- but I can understand having a child who doesn’t understand that he can ask for help from the dad too- I have been there – my husband has a habit of switching off, so my kids used to prefer me as I am alert and have eyes at the back of. my head as do you too. He just trusts you for answers.

    Perpetual parenting pandemic… Mom gets little solitary time…Eagle has a great book from last birthday called You Rule. Concept is the kid makes their own country, decides the name, government, rules, passports, traditions, etc. Is there a corner of the living room Monkey can claim as his Legolandia? Or maybe it’s mom who needs her own corner! 🙂 R
