The almost 4 year old and her tantrums.

My dear daughter is 4 in a couple of months. We are deep in throwing tantrums over to most, what would seem like ‘nothing important’.

To her, she has all these ‘BIG’ feelings and is struggling to express herself with words.

Tantrums can be exhausting and frustrating to any parent. But ask yourself, how would you explain your feelings if your vocabulary was limited and your brain was overcome and overwhelmed with different feelings and thoughts?

This is a typical day for a developing child. They have limited vocabulary. Struggle with day to day feelings and the smallest things to them can feel like it’s the biggest thing in their world.

Welcome to 3-4 year olds.

For example, yesterday my almost 4 year old had 2 tantrums within perhaps 20 minutes of each other. The first was because her 6yo brother was watching something that she didn’t want to, and instead of her watching it in another room. Miss decided to scream, stamp her feet and yell all kinds of things because ABC kids was not playing.

After we dealt with that in a calming manner, explaining to her that there is another TV that we could put that channel on for her to watch, she decided to calm her ‘Big’ and ‘important’ feelings.

The second tantrum was because she wanted avocado toast just as we were about to leave for her brothers martial arts class. As I explained to her that she can have it once we get back, that was not a good enough answer for her and she proceeded to sit in the pantry and pull out all boxed items, creating a ‘wall’ so that I could not see her. All whilst screaming at me to stop talking to her.

With this I walked away and let her calm down and within a few minutes it’s, she came over to apologise.

These are only a few examples of what we have been experiencing over the past few months. Prior to this, my little miss almost 4, has been quite well behaved and mannered.

I don’t remember my 6 year old boy behaving this way at her age.
Is it a girl thing?
Is it a second child thing?
Or is it simply because my two children are different people?
It could very well be a combination of all of the above, but in any case, I’m hoping that these tantrums start to dissolve soon.

Below is a link that I have found quite helpful.
Hopefully you will also.

Just remember, breathe and know, this is just a phase. You will survive, and you will both thrive from these ‘adventures’.

Stress free toddler!

Being a parent is the hardest job I’ve ever had, however by far the most rewarding.

All the academic qualifications can never prepare you for being a parent. A new adventure and or challenges on a daily or sometimes hourly basis.

Hold tight though, they are only little once and these ‘testing’ times will pass and perhaps we will look back and wonder why we thought they were so hard?

So much happening!

So much happening!

Firstly my apologies for being a little ‘vacant’ lately. I think it’s been 2 weeks since my last post? I try to post weekly but there has been so much happening I’ve been distracted.

Where to start then?

Well we are renovating and I’m more than happy with the progress. We have painted our ‘timber’ kitchen white and the finished product is awesome! It feels so clean and fresh! It’s amazing what a ‘lick of paint’ can do to a room. It’s a small cost for a huge change!

We are also extending our back deck. It was 500cm X 300cm. Once it’s finished it will be 700cm X 360cm! Giving us a much better use of space and a better view of our back yard. The old deck was also a semi circle which wasn’t very user friendly. The new one will be rectangular. So excited!

I’ve also been busy getting other quotes for other various works that we would like to do to our home.

Had a little bit of family dramas, hubby has been over seas for work and I also recently joined a gym. I haven’t trained since I found out that I was pregnant with my little guy. When I worked it out, I haven’t done any proper exercise or a ‘work out’ as such for 44 months!

All this and still being a SAHM (stay at home mum) to my little man who has just turned 3 and my little girl who is now 5 months old. Where has the time gone….?!?!

I’m loving being back at the gym however I have been suffering ‘mummy guilt’. I try to do 2 classes per week and as I don’t have any ‘help’ as such as hubby works long hours, my little ones go to the crèche.

I feel horrible doing it but I try to rationalise with myself. They are both with me 99% of the time. My little girl is always with me but my 3yo goes to preschool 9am – 2:45pm one day per week.

I guess most mothers go through similar emotions right?

On the other hand though, I never have time to myself. Which I’m not complaining about as I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂 but I think doing 2 classes per week is ok? Each class is only 45 minutes. Is that mean on my behalf?

So this post is basically my apologies for not writing sooner and to ‘dob’ myself in. I am a dedicated person and do ‘stick’ to things if I start them. I am also more likely to stay on track if I have told someone about my plans. I guess that’s my personality also, I don’t like to let others down and I like to do what I say.

I will also write about my fitness progress and as I experiment with new healthy recipes, I will blog them.

No this won’t be a ‘fitness / diet’ blog. I will still write about anything and everything but I will also keep you updated on my progress!

Until my next check in 😉 xx

My life as a mummy of two!

My life as a mummy of two!

So settling into being a mummy of two has been challenging. Loving it, but challenging.

Experiencing the love all over again, smelling and absorbing my new born and still being everything I can be for my 2 year old.

My 2 year old has been a little jealous and understandably. He has had his mummy all to himself for the past 2.5years, now all of a sudden he has to share his mummy and it hasn’t been an easy adjustment for him.

Throughout my pregnancy I was trying to help him adjust, I bought books about becoming a big brother, books about expecting a baby and we would chat about how he is getting a little sister and that it’s very special for both him and her.

I thought he would be a little jealous but I guess I wasn’t prepared for the huge change in him.

Firstly my little man used to be a fairly good sleeper. After night nurses and reward charts I had managed to get him to go down approx 6pm in his own bed, we would read 3 books then it was lights off. My little man would then sleep through in his own big boy bed until approx 6am the next morning.

Since I was in hospital for over a week my husband and mother were looking after my little man. His routine wasn’t really followed and for a few weeks he didn’t like to go to bed and wasn’t sleeping through, waking multiple times per night and insisting on sleeping with me and leaving his bedside lamp on.

The first few nights I was really strict and walked him back to his room, comforted him and helped him to go back to sleep but after 5 nights of the same behaviour I began to feel bad and allowed him to come into my bed and sleep with me.

Mainly because it’s a huge adjustment and in between feeding my little girl every 2.5 hours I have been pretty tired. Also secretly I love snuggling with him and he is my little man, my first born and always will be.

This phase only lasted approx 3 weeks though and now he is happy to go to his own bed, he isn’t sleeping through every night, however most nights he does, and if he doesn’t he is only waking once or twice and I carry him back to his room and he goes back to sleep.

He is really sweet with his sister and is quite protective and loving towards her. If he hears her cry he will come straight to me and tell me she is upset and he also runs to her room and says in the sweetest little voice ‘you ok Mila?’

He also loves to help me change her nappy and I allow him to choose her outfits. I want him to feel involved and part of her life. Although he is only 2.5years old I think that by allowing him to be a big part in the decisions around her will help him to adjust and accept her more easily and not have him be as jealous or feel left out or pushed aside.

My little girl though is a different story, she sleeps very well and I actually wake her to feed. During the day I’m feeding every 3 hours however of a night I let her sleep and she wakes me. She is only 3 weeks old though and I anticipate that this may change.

The dynamic in the house has also changed, it feels complete now. I feel like I’m whole. My little man and my little princess have completed me, of course with my husband. 🙂 I was once told that to have one child of each sex is a ‘gentleman’s family’ or a ‘pigeon pair’ which is apparently quite well looked upon in the eyes of some. I feel blessed that I have been able to create this little family with my husband and also be able to give him a child of each sex.

Being a parent is a constant lesson, I’m always learning more about myself but also about my children. I’m feeling very blessed at this stage in my life.

I’m sure with each step and change in growth patterns with my 2 children things within our home will change also with dynamics and learning. I look forward to sharing these moments with you.

Meeting house Preschool

This wonderful new preschool have recently reopened its doors in the Lane Cove (Sydney) area.

Its teachers are lovely and it boasts wonderful new equipment / facilities!

Absolutely  worth a look if you have a preschooler.

There are still positions available – it comes highly recommended!

Nothing better than a recommendation from a mummy whose children already attend the centre.

Word of mouth is the best advertisement I say 😉

Check out its website – very cute!

Authors? Journalists? Bloggers?

Authors

Just putting it out there, I was told blatantly the other day that unless you have writing qualifications you shouldn’t blog.

I was taken aback but then thought how rude and self absorbed the person who said it must be. Are they are simply saying or implying that unless your a professionally or academically trained writer you should write? Or that what you write isn’t worth reading? Or perhaps they don’t care to know about every day life with every day people? Do they think they are more superior? Who knows!

I get that must blogs are written by journalists or perhaps published authors but the cast majority of blog are written by everyday people for everyday people.

Which brings me to my next thought.

What is a blog?

Many people have different ideas about what a blog should or shouldn’t be. After much internet searching I’ve discovered –

blog
blɒɡ/
noun
1.
a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.
verb
1.
add new material to or regularly update a blog.
“it’s about a week since I last blogged”
“he blogged the Democratic and Republican national conventions as an independent”
Origin

1990s: abbreviation of weblog.

Or definition by Wikipedia

A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog)[1] is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual[citation needed], occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently “multi-author blogs” (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other “microblogging” systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into societal newstreams. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

The emergence and growth of blogs in the late 1990s coincided with the advent of web publishing tools that facilitated the posting of content by non-technical users. (Previously, a knowledge of such technologies as HTML and FTP had been required to publish content on the Web.)

A majority are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via GUI widgets on the blogs, and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites.[2] In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking service. Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs, but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers.[3] There are high-readership blogs which do not allow comments, such as Daring Fireball.

Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries; others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important contribution to the popularity of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (art blogs), photographs (photoblogs), videos (video blogs or “vlogs”), music (MP3 blogs), and audio (podcasts). Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts. In education, blogs can be used as instructional resources. These blogs are referred to as edublogs.

On 16 February 2011, there were over 156 million public blogs in existence.[4] On 20 February 2014, there were around 172 million Tumblr[5] and 75.8 million WordPress[6] blogs in existence worldwide. According to critics and other bloggers, Blogger is the most popular blogging service used today, however Blogger does not offer public statistics.[7][8] Technorati has 1.3 million blogs as of February 22, 2014[9]

So my interpretation of this and again many people will see it as they want to, a blog is something someone or a group write which allows them freedom of speech. They write about their passions, feelings, experiences, hobbies, anything that they like.

Is this right or wrong?

There are many celebrity gossip blogs out there and many personal blogs out there. They can be written on anything from interior design, cooking, fitness, mummy tips, parenting tips, shopping, styling anything!

So my question is, if you get offended or assume something is written directly at you. Don’t read it.

Everybody is allowed their own opinions and for the most part as long as names are not mentioned a blog is almost like someone’s vent or personal diary. Their win right to post what they like.

There are many controversial blogs out there and there are many readers for many blogs. Each to their own I say and again, if you don’t like it, don’t read it!

Being a mummy.

I love being a mum!

I read many blogs and quite often find myself drawn to 2 in particular, yes MamaMia by Mia Freedman and Mouths of Mums.

As you know I recently gave up my career, actually let’s rephrase it ‘I’ve put my career on hold to have a family’. I’m sure I will go back to work at some stage but for now I’m a mummy.

I am also the first to admit that I struggled with this. Along with the complete financial reliance on my hubby I felt I was also giving up some of my independence. I’m not sure if other parents have felt the same when they made this decision however I certainly did.

It’s now been approx 4 months since I gave up my employment and I must say I love being a mummy. I have many friends and acquaintances who may not agree with me, they may feel like they struggle. I however am relishing in it and absolutely adore being a mummy. I absolutely adore my son too! 🙂

I have no deadlines, I have no immediate commitments, work to my own schedule and can sit around in my pyjamas all day if I feel like it. Not that this actually happens as our days are filled with reading group, gymbaroo, swimming lessons, play dates and general house hold chores including grocery shopping, washing, dishes, preparing meals and much more! But I still love it and feel grateful that my husband and I are in a position where I can be a stay at home mummy. I know some family’s simply can not afford to have one parent stay at home, I feel very fortunate and lucky.

I truly believe that being a stay at home parent is not for everyone and some people need a career or something more. I did love my job but after long consideration do not regret giving it up for my little man. Each day he inspires me and makes me laugh. I often find myself just looking at him and wondering what I did prior to having him? Each day he teaches me something new both about life and about myself. The love I have for him is indescribable and grows more and more with every passing day.

Again not everyone wants to be a stay at home parent, not everyone can be a stay at home parent for what ever their reasoning. It may be financial, it may be that they are more career focussed, perhaps they are a better parent when they are also working. Whatever their reasons, it’s an individual choice and no one should judge another for their choices.

So this now brings me to another article I read on my favourite MamaMia blog. It has made me feel even better about my decision to be a stay at home mummy. I enjoy being a mummy and cherish the fact that I can actually have all this time with my little man, seeing him grow and explore and make his own adventures.

I’ve pasted the article below to share with others who may be feeling in a conundrum about their choices.

By ALISSA WARREN

I like being a mum.

There, I said it.

In fact, I’ll go one step further. I love being a mum.
For years, I’ve been a bit sheepish about admitting it. I’d go as far as to say I felt a bit embarrassed.

Admitting you enjoy motherhood is met with the same looks you might get if you mentioned that you wear a Batman mask for fun. Or you wash your bed linen twice a day.

Like, what?

Somehow, this innocent, OBVIOUS statement has become almost socially unacceptable to say out loud.

Those five little words.

I love being a mum.

I’ve thought about this a lot lately. About why there is a stigma to saying you love motherhood. And I think there are three reasons we’re reluctant to say it.

The first is that up until relatively recently, saying “I love it!” was the only possible answer to the question “Are you enjoying motherhood?” There were no other acceptable options. As soon as they had children, women had to hide their unhappiness, their frustration, their guilt, their anxiety and their boredom for fear of being labelled a bad mother or an ungrateful one. Being negative or honest was frowned upon so women self-censored. Post natal depression didn’t even have a name let alone any community or medical understanding.

Being able to speak openly about the hard parts of motherhood has been undoubtedly a positive thing. It’s a less isolating experience now. There’s a better, wider understanding of the challenges involved in parenthood. There’s no longer pressure to be a Carol Brady Stepford Wife who’s hap-hap-happy all the time!

The result of this though, is that the pendulum has swung too far. There’s a sense among some women that by being positive about motherhood, you’re somehow letting the side down. Which confused me for a long time. Because when I say I love motherhood, I’m not suggesting everyone should. Not all the time, anyway. I’m not undermining anything any other woman wants to say about the experience. I’m not implicitly criticising any other mother for being less positive than me.

But surely my voice and my experience counts too? Surely there’s room for a range of different expressions about the experience of motherhood? Why does one sentiment have to cancel out another? It doesn’t.

The conversations about motherhood are so often about the struggles, the tantrums, the balance, the homework and the no-sleep. Sure, there’s that.

But recently, it’s become ONLY that. Because sometimes it feels like mothers aren’t really allowed to say we love motherhood. With good intentions, the good stuff has taken a backseat for fear of offending people who didn’t/couldn’t have children and for fear of upsetting the mothers who were struggling.

Peversely, singing the praises of motherhood has pretty much become taboo.

Have we been shit-canning motherhood for so long and in such depth, that we can’t even remember – and savour – the main game?

I’m reclaiming the land. That doesn’t mean I don’t feel for women who can’t have children or that I think childless women are living incomplete lives. Nor do I want to be insensitive to mothers who can’t be parents, who want to be – a sadness I can’t begin to imagine.

But I’d like to put an end to the collective shaming of ‘enjoying life with children’.

Because I love it. And I’m not ashamed to say, these are the bits I love the most.

1. It’s full.
My life is packed. Full of cuddles, arguments, questions like, ‘does God have eyes?’ and squeaky little voices. Their words fill the air. Always. Their little lives fill my heart. And literally, too. I have so many Nurofen syringes that I don’t have anywhere to put my kitchen scissors. I have so many colourful drink bottles busting from our Tupperware drawer that I had to throw out my extra tea towels. My days are long, my weeks are fast. They’re full. And fulfilling.

2. My kids have given me the greatest gift: patience.
Children don’t rush to put their shoes on, do a wee, get into the car, sit in their carseat or put their seatbelt on. This process once took me about 7.5 seconds. It takes my children a minimum of 17 minutes. This busy life has the slowest of moments and while it’s taken me a long time to stop nagging and embrace it. (However, I believe others may not be so keen to embrace how LATE we are).

3. It’s fun.
Oh, the horror. I just said motherhood was F-U-N! I can hear the sharpening of pitchforks. But it’s true. It’s funny and it’s fun. My kids’ little faces when I tell them they can have Weet Bix for dinner. Or the way they stare at themselves in the reflection of the mirror to see their little teeth. Or when they blame a fart on someone else. Or when they talk to birds. It’s humour at it’s purest and most original.

4. There’s no bullshit.
There’s no room for sensitive souls on the home front. Everyone gets a dressing down. There’s little space for a mum to have a ‘bad day’ and wallow around feeling sorry for herself. There’s no better pick-me-up than a forced one.

5. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.
Enough said.

But that’s the thing, there’s not enough being said.

The ingredients that make up motherhood should be celebrated for their simplicity and loveliness. Let’s reignite the love.

 

Mummy guilt.

Mummy guilt…

Let’s face it, being a mummy doesn’t come with a manual or handbook and nothing can prepare you for the unknown.

When I say unknown I mean, we all know that a baby cries, drinks milk and sleeps right? Yes we lean that from family, friends and pre natal classes. What we don’t lean is what each cry means and why they are constantly waking when they have a clean nappy, have a full tummy and are at perfect temperature.

If like me you have tried control crying, tried the shhh method, patting, night lights, baby monitors, white noise etc etc but sometimes after 2hrs of continuous toddler waking – for no apparent reason other than he calls out my name and thinks I should be sleeping in his room along side him. You snap…

Well last night I did. I had reached my teather of shhh, patting, white noise, coving in blankets and every other method known to mummy’s all over the world. I raised my voice at my 20 month old little man. The love of my life, my world. I told him ‘just go to sleep mummy is cold and tired and I’m over the constant waking’. He didn’t listen though and as soon as I left his room he started to stream and call out ‘mamma, mamma, mamma’. I eventually gave in as I often get ‘mummy guilt’ and feel bad for raising my voice at such an innocent little delight (delight when he isn’t awake at 2am!).

I gave in at 4am after 2 hours of back and forth from his room to my bed and put him in bed with me. He then slept until 8am. I know this is a terrible bad habit but I suffer ‘mummy guilt’ and this morning I feel terrible for many reasons.

1. I raised my voice at him
2. I ended up giving in to him and allowing him to sleep with me
3. I was to tired to get up and see my hubby off to work
4. It’s 8am when I’m usually up at 6:30am
5. His routine is now out by a couple hours all because ‘I gave in’

Does anyone else suffer from ‘mummy guilt’?

I’ve read all the sleep books, saving our sanity books, taming toddler books, healthy eating books but none of these methods seem to help my little one.

Perhaps he just has it over me?

I look at him with overwhelming love and stare into his beautiful brown eyes and feel besotted with love and adoration. Why am I yelling at him to sleep? Perhaps he is just ready to start his day? He did go down at 7pm. That’s 7hrs sleep, adults survive on that, is it enough? Then the little voice of reason kicks in, I hear it telling me – ‘no all the books say toddlers needs 14 hours of sleep’. So I’m confused and feeling ‘mummy guilt’ again.

It’s not only with his sleep I feel guilt, it’s also with his eating. We all want our children to grow up healthy and as my father used to say ‘big and strong’ and we were drummed in that vegetables and meat made us this way. ‘Eat your veg then your meat’ my dad used to say every night at the dinner table and it was a ceremony of us all sitting down to eat together. So I feel guilty that my little one eats alone at 5pm as to keep to his nightly routine of dinner, bath, bottle, story and bed.

I feel guilty about what if he isn’t getting enough nutrients or fruit and vegetables? I still do purée veg for him to endure he eats veg every night and I do them in weekly batches and freeze then in Snap lock bags, mixing up the veg so that it’s not boring and ensuring he eats a variety of different things. I know a few children who are almost teenagers who still don’t eat veg and I think it’s because it wasn’t encouraged as toddlers.

Your taste buds and also habits evolve on a 30 day cycle so you can either beat a habit or learn to enjoy something if you stick to it for 30 days. Now I’m not saying eat the same veg for 30 days straight but encourage healthy eating from a young age and when ten reach 8, 9 or 10 even older they will enjoy certain veg. Don’t get me wrong we don’t have to love all veg but at least like 1 of every colour. He eats meat every night and I ensure he is having enough dairy such as cheese, yogurt, custards, milk etc. I don’t allow too much excess or un necessary sugars and although I allow treats, I try to minimise chocolate, chips, lollies and biscuits to a special occasion.

I’ve listed some veggie and fruit colours below that I try to have at least one veg from each colour in his weekly cook up. I freeze these in 1 cup lots then thaw for the day and cook fresh meat each evening.

Orange / Yellow = pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, corn, squash, rockmelon, oranges, lemon, mango, pineapple.

Green = broccoli, peas, beans, Brussels sprouts, green capsicum, spinach, asparagus, avocado, green apple, green grapes, limes, kiwi fruit, pear.

Red = tomato, red capsicum, radish, cherries, rhubarb, red grapes, raspberries, strawberries.

Purple / Blue = beetroot, purple asparagus, red cabbage, eggplant, blue berries, mulberries, black berries.

White / Brown = cauliflower, mushroom, onion, peaches, nectarines, garlic, banana, potato, ginger, brown pears, dates.
I know I’m not the perfect mother, I wish I was but what is ‘perfect’? I try my best to raise my child to be the best person he can be. Encouraging him to try new things, be brave, show leadership skills, be kind and caring, fun and happy, help others but most of all I encourage him to be himself. Strive for what he wants rather than what I want him to be.

Perhaps I just have too high of expectations on what is being a good mummy?

Transition into stay at home mummy.

Stay at home mum transition.

So as most of you are aware I became a stay at home mum – full time approx 2 months ago. After we moved home and intimations change our positioning.

I have had many inner demons questioning my decision.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my child more than anything in the whole universe however I sometime feel I’ve lost a part of me including my independence and self support.

Some of you may question this and ask why do I question it?

Because I’ve always been so Independant and never relied on anyone. Yes I’m married and yes my marriage is strong. In fact it was my hubby’s push for me to be a stay at home mum with his complete support both emotionally and financially that helped me make this very difficult decision.

I guess I’ve always had fear of being reliant on anyone so me giving this up was a difficult decision. I also felt that after a few years out if the work force who would want to hire me? What would I offer over someone who has continuously worked and is possibly younger? Well I know what I can offer and that may be life experience, motherly decisions / instincts, maturity, life knowledge, skill or happiness. I guess we will just wait and see how my life plays out and if in fact I do decide to re join the workforce.

I have however found many others in similar situation to mine. Here are a few of their stories that may also assist you. I know they have helped me to let go of the fear factor and know that no matter what, my hubby will always support my decisions even if I decide to never enter paid employment again.

After all why should we feel guilty about not working in a paid career? I believe raising a little person is the most rewarding career move I’ve ever made. It may not pay in cash but it certainly pays in unconditional love and every day I get to play, grow and learn from a beautiful human being that i made!

Needless to say being at home everyday and getting to share special moments with my little man is the biggest and best decision of my life!

I hope I’ve been able to help you come to terms with your decisions also, if so please write me your story.
