July

It's been a long month this.  One to erase from my memory.

In the midst of excitement having Gregory back home and starting some home schooling fun together, we got some lovely insects to entertain us.  According to all doctors & specialists they were bed bugs.  We have never seen the buggers so I will just leave it at that....  However 3 weeks later we are 5 days bites free.

To enjoy our victory, Gregory got some gastric flu.  And of course having a 2.5 year old in the house makes for some added spice to the mix of tantrums, not knowing what we want, wanting it our way and no other way etc.

I have to say I am fed up.  I am done.  I just want to close my eyes and sleep for an eternity.

Yet it is sweet memories of all these adventures.

Thankfulness for having a house and mattresses where to sleep and the means to clean them and our house to get rid of the bugs.

Thankfulness that my girl shows so much independence and fierce tenacity for what she wants.

Thankfulness and awesomeness that my 4.5 year old DOES realise when he is feeling sick, nauseous and also when runny stools are threatening and runs to the bathroom without enlisting my help.

Thankfulness and pride that throughout all this madness I have shouted, hit or been a less than desirable parent for only 10 out of 26 days.
