Today marks 4 years since we found out I was pregnant with Toby, and also 18 months since Martha was born. Today I’m off work because Martha is ill, and today I’m feeling incredibly sad.
I love baking, believe it or not, however attempting it with the kids just breaks my soul and so to avoid the stress this Halloween, I opened the cupboards, saw some perfect snacks that could work together, and we made these very, very easy no bake Halloween toddler treats!
I should add ‘sleep deprived’ into the title too, because essentially the tiredness and the juggling of toddler-ness make working full time so much harder. Working makes the sleep deprivation and the toddler-ness much harder. Double-edged swords and all. So, how to survive it.
It’s been 3 weeks since Martha’s last drowsy 4am feed. 3 weeks since my body last gave her nourishment. Yet after 17 months, my body has adjusted as if nothing had ever happened. I’ve not really felt anything – emotionally or physically – and when I tried to write, it was numb and lacking any feeling. I may as well have been writing about the weather. Then today, the emotions have flooded through me and I need to write.
