parenting highs and lows vlog

I’ll keep the intro short here, because it’s a chatty video below and I don’t want to end up just typing out a sort of inaccurate, truncated transcript. So without further ado: things I’ve struggled with this month and things that have lifted my spirits. The Parenting Highs and Lows for February 2018.

    So sorry about your father passing away. My father died 7 years ago when I was 36. I had a 2 year old and 8 month old so I totally relate to your lows this month. It comes in waves. One minute you are at peace with it, the next you are agonising over specific things in the past and all the time you have to keep going with the kids. Driving in the car was about the only quiet time for me and I’d end up grieving then. Take care and hang in there; in time pleasure returns.

    P.S. I really enjoy your beauty tips so thanks so much for all that…

    I’m so sorry to hear about your Dad, it’s so hard. Mine passed away when I was 15 and I’m still finding my way through it. Hope you have lots of support and help, especially with the kids. It can be tough to be jolly for them when you want to sob into a duvet. I do a podcast where i interview comedians about grief and death, so it’s cheerier than it sounds. Might help if you’re ready to listen to other people talking about, might be a bit early, but here if you fancy it.
    p.s. i really love this blog and the work that you do x

    So sorry to hear about your dad 🙁
    I liked the reminder to stay in touch with our parents while they are here because is so difficult when they don’t live near you and especially hard when small children/work grab our attention constantly.
    Hope you have lots of support around you at the moment xx
