My Easter Tree
Hello all! hope you are all enjoying your week so far and looking forward to the Easter Break. Here we have been busy playing, crafting, baking and all other child friendly activities you can think of! I love spending time with my children but as I have mentioned before I do find it difficult to amuse two children of such differing ages, Little Mia is too young to do a lot of the crafting I do with Liliana so I try to give her something to do that is safe and for her age. Well that just does not wash with my Little Mia who is having massive tantrums at the moment, because she wants whatever Liliana has and when we say no she goes ballistic! and I mean BALLISTIC! I was blessed to never really experience tantrums with Liliana but then being an only child for 5 years she always got my undivided attention. These tantrums are really draining as I'm sure all you mums who have had the same experience will know, I'm running out of ideas to placate the little one and I do try to ignore a lot of the behaviour because I know she is trying to get attention, but I am reaching the end of my rope! I know this stage will pass and I am willing it to come asap! We even let her smear her hair in Vaseline! I know you are probably thinking I am mad, but she gets eczema on her scalp so I do rub a little on her scalp at night time, however Mia never does anything by halves and used the majority of the newish tub to do her new hairstyle much to the hysterics of my other daughter Liliana. I must admit it did raise my spirits to see her having so much fun and not be erupting into a tantrum. Here is a photo of her after having her hair spiked up by big sister!
Anyway enough of my complaining, on to creative things which will always cheer me up! Put the Easter Tree up this morning with lots of help from Liliana, bless her, she had totally loaded it up on one side and it was on the verge of collapsing, I told her how beautiful it looked and then discreetly adjusted to my liking, am I wrong? I do feel a little bad for doing this but I just can't help it. I tend to be a bit of a control freak and would rather do things myself, which is not good when you have little people always so keen to lend you their unique creativity to all your projects! The main thing is Liliana has not noticed and is taking all the credit so that's good.
Hope you all have a lovely week, and will speak to you soon! Lisaxxx
