“I never want to go to the beach again!”
Sometimes I don’t get some of my boys. Despite spending hours of fun on the beach, it apparently was the worst part of the day (for Oisin) and crappy enough for both Aidan and Oisin to declare that they will not join me to the beach if there’s a next time. I blame it on the sand.
Thank god I have the photos as proof that they’re lying.
While we are on the side of beautiful photos, here are some photos of the real deal, adjustment.
Good lord, it’s hard. Really hard. Oisin is dealing with it the hardest, which surprised me because I thought Aidan would. Aidan already expressed extreme homesickness BEFORE we left (and he’s doing fabulous so far). Oisin? What happened to my sweet child? He’s been very stubborn, impulsive and easily angry. I know he does well with structure, but at the moment, that’s not possible because our schedule is totally schizophrenic of late. I just miss my baby boy.
When he’s finally is in a good mood or cooperating, it’s the OTHER kid who’s being bloody difficult. They take turns, I swear. Last night, I was at the end of my rope and forbade any of them to sleep with me (they argue on who’s turn it is). The night ended, finally…
Yet, I felt so alone and was so tempted to pick one of them and carry them over to my bed and to sleep with.
I can’t win. #mommyhood
just a mother who fled from society's constraints and is super excited to wake up to the outdoors, remain braless daily and teach her boys the art of boredom and discovery.
