My what I wore this week posts are actually a round-up of what I wore over the course of last week but I think you get the gist :) It was quite nice this week so we did a lot of walking around the area. Even though my 5-year-old can take what should be a 20 minute walk and turn it in to 1.5 hours to get to the destination. I miss the days when she sat in a stroller and I could walk anywhere as fast or as slow as I want, stop where I want, look at what I want. Now I have to watch the light change 3 times before I can wrangle her up to cross the street, pull her out from under racks, and watch her like a hawk because she will be gone in the blink of an eye. My oldest was so easy compared to her, I guess you don’t get that lucky twice? (kind of kidding, I love her dearly and wouldn’t want to change her or crush her spirit. I am learning to embrace her obstinateness) I know we should bask in the joy of discovery and wonder in our kids, but I’m not a super patient person at all so I end up taking a deep breathe and internally chanting “they are only a kid once….”. We went to Ikea on Sunday which is one of my most favourite places, I made Merle sit in a cart because I spend more time chasing her and telling her to walk beside me than actually being able to look around and enjoy myself. You would have thought that I committed a serious crime by the way she carried on through the store because she was in a cart. Her butt hurt, she couldn’t see, she was bored. I was tempted to check her into the kid play centre but knew they would be calling me on the PA to come get her within minutes. Then we bought her a hot dog and all was right in the world again. She is only a kid once….
Do any of you have a child that keeps you on your toes 27/7?
