We are just about holding it together at the seams at the moment. Unlike @daddy_freckle's jeans which did not withstand some vigorous bouncing in Sunday, and buckled under the pressure and split. But after a few unsettled nights with the kids (one teething and the other hot as a pancake) Mike and I have found ourselves quibbling over who's turn is it to make the packed lunch and throwing accusations about of who is guilty of leaving rogue socks around the house (Mike). Easily done when you are both have zombified and fed up of the baby monitor lighting up like it's Christmas come early. I am hoping tonight we can sit down, order a takeaway and catch up on suits. Now for a day of washing and looking after two poorly babes. #wishmeluck

    That is hilarious on the jumping out of his seams literally. We are the same here battling all sorts in this house between me and the kids and daddy the list of vertigo bladder infections double ear infections blood noses jetlag EOE with my son and then a vomit bug to top us all off we have been to pharmacy and doctors everyday last week. 😳😳😳😳 falling apart here

    Aw hope the wee ones are better soon. My husband is home briefly at the weekend and I am hanging on in there for my take-away and handing over parenting duties to him (for the 30ish hours he is home 😩) x

    Bless you all nothing worse than when they're all poorly and we always take it out on the ones we love!!! Feel it becomes a competition as to who is more tired when me and hubby are in this situation! Get well soon Edith and flo xx @mother_freckle

    Sending love and get well vibes to the girls. Everyone is always far more stressed out when the kids are sick. You've got this and I hope you get a little alone time with @daddy_freckle later today without the monitor going off. ❀️

    At least you guys have sleep deprivation to attribute blame - most couples (myself included) have these arguments regardless πŸ˜€πŸ’• hang on in there x

    @franklylisa99 Ahhhhh we would argue before kids but it's definitely more frequent now! How are you anyway? Is it freezing up there? Xx

  • 38w ago mother_freckle mother_freckle

    @selfless_mama thank you lovely! Aww it's always so much harder isn't it? Xx

  • 38w ago mother_freckle mother_freckle

    @mrsdodeshall yes! Who has it worse off! We are terrible for that! Thank you lovely I'm hoping they are better soon xx

    @chelle_catherine77 that is so true! I've got it firmly in mind, although it seems so far away!

    With you in spirit, sister!! 🌟😘

  • 38w ago _hollygoeslightly _hollygoeslightly

    Oh bless you! Hard enough with one let alone two, but you guys totally boss the parenting! Just try and have some time together, even if only 30 mins (as me and @richtwood often only get!). A takeaway and trashy TV makes the world of difference after sleepless nights and baby tantrums lol xx

  • 38w ago franklylisa99 franklylisa99

    division of labour ends up being my husband and I's most frequent argument. All good here - weather has been great - we were out playing tennis after school yesterday πŸ˜€
