Self indulgent rant

Rant away my dear

<makes soothing noises>

Had planned a day out to the zoo for me and the DDs and up until 5 mins ago the 5 yr old was still having a fucking tantrum about sleep. I can't take her to the zoo tired, she is a nightmare. She will be up by 6 sad she is normally asleep at 7. 2.5 hrs less sleep will be painful.

Why is it every time I look forward to something it gets fuxked up??!

Och still go, it'll be fun

Grit teeth, rictus grin, jolly hockey sticks, channel PollyAnna

Also, take chocolate. For you!

She is just awful when tired. And at the end of a long day I don't want her tantrumming on the train on the way home sad

I'm so fed up. I was so excited to go.

I think it's the weather ours took a couple of hours to go off too

oh dear sad

We had the same with our four yr old last night...10pm she finally went to sleep.

We dug up the garden to flatten it for the paddling pool today, that was fun with her stropping about the place hmm

Part of me also thinks she needs to learn that she can't still throw fucking tantrums at 5!! sad

I thought the same about number two, she's starting reception in Sept...I'm dreading the first "can I have a word?" from her teacher when she throws a wobbly about something minor.

Never had this with dd1, she's always been fairly easy going confused

DD1 has always been highly strung like her mother smile

I just don't know what to do. Not go to teach her that she cannot behave like that? Or accept that it's hot and she was pissed off that she couldn't sleep?! Arrrgh. Parenting is shit sometimes!

We did and you know what, we had a bloody amazing day! You will read about in the next pen pal letter no doubt smile

(Dd1 is very slowly working on her letter hmm Probably be on way tomorrow or Tuesday so we'll look forward to hearing about it grin )
