Well it started great.

Then after lunch we went to play outside. Hide and seek resulted in tears. Bike riding resulted in tears. Scooter resulted in tears.

We're both knackered. There was shouting. Then more crying.

So we came in. So she drew on the dining room table (she's three). I shouted. She cried.

Very very rare, but today I just wished there was someone to take her away for an hour or so so I could just sit, recentre, and get some patience back.

I cried.

She's now in pyjamas having her dinner already, and will be in bed by 6.

There's wine in the fridge.

Fuck Saturday. Fuck single parenting. Fuck it all to hell.

They are tough days..Hopefully she is tucked up in bed now and go look at her if you know she is asleep I always think it helps looking at them looking angelic after a long day.

Thank you starry, you've brought tears to my eyes!

Yes I will do that x

Tomorrow is another day. Start with snuggles in bed then go out for the day if it's nice.

She won't remember what happened today - enjoy your wine!

I feel your pain sometimes it's rough like that. flowerswinewine

I don't mind being a LP, but I know I'd be a better mum if there was someone around to give me a breather sometimes

Weekends can be bloody hard. (Hugs) . Mine were sods this morning (9 & 7).

I realise this may be scant consolation but once she's school age there should be occasional party invites and maybe even a regular activity she can go to.

flowers Equinox, it's rough.

I'm month five of LP-ing mine and sometimes I find myself being so unreasonable. It's so hard.

Tomorrow is a new day and all that.

Do you have any LP friends? I find mine have become very important to me. Often wish we could all live together wth our kids in a massive house. I'd certainly be more sane.

Enjoy wine

Thanks, she's just started gym class and there are starting to be play dates etc.

Just one of those days. Happily they are rare now - funnily enough it's made me think back to when she was a baby and I realize how far we've come. I used to put her in bed and stand outside with a fag so I couldn't hear the screaming.

Yes things are definitely better!

No I have no LP friends. I don't know any others, not round here anyway. I live in a very transient community and if I do find a friend or two to support they soon move on. It is hard
