I often read Five Minutes Peace to the kids not because I particularly like the book but I hope that one day they will get the hint! With Charley now a very confident crawler I have 2 little shadows following me everywhere. They have invaded my bed, join me at every toilet occasion and now both want to shower with me. I am a huge believer in keeping your kids close but this could be classed as stalking.
Room For A Little One ???
The situation hasn’t been helped by the school holiday’s & my hubby working away during the week. This has meant me and the kids have had LOTS & LOTS of time together. To keep them occupied I have accepted every play date, attended every free event and covered my conservatory in paint & glitter making crafts. I secretly think my hubby likes working away, staying in a hotel with a bed all to himself, no sleep thieves kicking him in his back and enjoying a hot meal & a beer every night without being interrupted 20 times for a glass of milk, to read a story book or stop World War 3 breaking out over a stuffed bear. Like Mrs Large from the book I would occasionally like to take a bath in the morning instead of 9p.m at night and eat a whole piece of cake to myself and God Forbid drink a hot cup of tea. With Harry off to school in 2 weeks & me going back to work my Five Minutes’ Peace is going to be non-existent as Harry will need to practice his reading and some type of musical instrument will be taking up home with us (Lord, please not a recorder) and the temptation for both kids too join me in my bath will be too much. My only hope is that I too can escape to the kitchen like Mrs Large for 3 minutes and forty-five seconds (before they find me!)
