Last night I saw every. Bloody. Hour. These girls just hate sleep for some reason. I’m exhausted beyond belief and my patience was thin today. Naps were random and short as my temper. The girls were grouchy too and there’s been a lot of crying and screaming. Then in desperation for a bit more sleep out of them I took them in the garden just before five. Bounce fell asleep after ten mins or so. Giggles was screaming so I took her out for a cuddle. Luckily this coincides with our next door neighbour letting his homing pigeons out to stretch their wings. She was fascinated by the birds flapping and swooping overhead and we shared a lovely 15 minutes watching them together. I’m amazed by how well she can see now as she spotted them from quite far off. I tell her about how they use their wings and that they always come home (though I have absolutely no idea how they manage this. Something to do with magnetic fields maybe? 🤷🏻♀️) I picture us having a similar moment when they’re older, watching the birds after dinner and talking, answering endless questions on things I know precious little about and my temper melts away. Parenting eh?!
