I honestly cannot wait for it to be Monday tomorrow and as a working mum I can tell you that is not something that I say very often, never in fact.
This weekend has been hellish! No exaggeration. Nath has been in Marbella, on his stag do, since Thursday and little miss Ava has made sure that I've felt his absence by being a fully fledged demon child. We have had a melt down every day and battles over the smallest things, getting dressed being a new favourite. I had so many fun things planned for us to do. Baking, painting, swimming, bike rides, dvd nights...and while we've done all of those things they've mostly turned out disastrous due to a melt down from the small one.
This weekend I've also felt like a bit of a failure. I've been anxious about this weekend as Ava is definitely well into the terrible two's phase (please let it be a phase) and with my lack of patience I find it hard to deal with, but I stuck my happy head on and on Thursday was actually looking forward to some one on one time with Ava.
Thursday was fine, then on Friday it all went down hill. After a lovely evening having a carpet picnic in front of The Little Mermaid she fell asleep at 7.20pm having had no nap during the day. Result I thought, I'll get loads done. Nope, Ava woke at 9.00pm and that was it. Crying for 2 hours until I was near enough crying myself and had to call Nathan's mum for back up! I won't bore you with the rest of my mad weekend but that pretty much set the tone for the next 2 days. I feel deflated and disappointed. Deflated that the weekend didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped and disappointed that I lose my cool so quickly. Nath is definitely the more patient one out of the two of us and I think we've both been missing him like crazy this weekend. I have the utmost respect for single parents. You guys are total superstars!
It is my hen do on Friday and myself and a group of friends are heading off to Barcelona for the weekend. I'm really looking forward to it and after the weekend I've had I cannot wait to get my hands on a cocktail (or three).
