When your feeling overwhelmed – read this

Heres just a little pick me up post for all you mamma’s and dads who are just down right overwhelmed. We all have those days, some days are just better than others. If it’s just a crappy day please read this to know that your not alone and your doing great – remember this too shall pass ❤️

Just BREATHE!

I once read that a noisy, messy house is a healthy house.

That children who play loudly, shout, argue, tease, are wild and full of energy bouncing round the house are the happy kids. The kids who know you are their safe place, they have to filter and control their behaviour in the real world and when they get home they can just let go of all that and just be themselves, because they feel safe to do so. Abit like us, when we get home we take the makeup off, throw the hair up, shove the PJS on and just sloth! We wouldn’t necessarily do that just anywhere. It’s where we feel comfortable and where our children feel most comfortable so they can let themselves go. It’s like their way of saying they feel safe and loved with you ❤️ Keep that in the back of your mind when they are driving you crazy 😉

It’s the withdrawn children who don’t engage in play, who don’t make eye contact, the children who rock themselves, the children who are silent that don’t feel safe anywhere they go – silence is the real thing thats most worrying when it comes to our kids. So embrace the noise and mess, it’s memories they will keep with them in years to come. No child remembers amazing memories of how clean or quiet their house was. After all one day our children will be all grown up and we would do anything to have one more day of the childhood chaos ❤️

This to shall pass.
