... tomorrow i will make time for DD1 to play playdoh

... tomorrow i will teach DD1 how to write the other letters in her name. Not just the "E" for Ella. which someone else has taught her.

... tomorrow i will sit and play baby games with DD2.

... tomorrow we will all make cookies (from the betty crocker mixture in the packet that's been in the cupboard for weeks) without me being a control freak & giving in to the mess.

... tomorrow i will not shout.

anyone else want to add???

Tomorrow i will try and be more positive if dd has any accidents in her pants. I will also read her more books and tickle her little feet.

Tomorrow I will not get shouty if my 6 year old DS has a poo accident in his pants again for the 4th time this week (ongoing issues)

I do wonder if we will reach a day of clean pants every single day. Sigh.

Tomorrow I will try not to laugh when two year old dd says "for fucks sake" under her breath blush

Tomorrow I will spend less time wielding my handheld dyson, pouncing on every little crumb that might be dropped and more time actually playing with my DC

Tomorrow I will try not to mutter FFS under my breath every time one of my DC does something even remotely annoying

Tomorrow I may also get the play doh out and not freak if 2 or more colours end up mixed together making a mucky brown colour!

MrsRV Wed 29-Jul-15 20:14:25

ah the guilt of shouting and being cross at accidents...! grin

i was told i'd need to reign it in when my daughter said "it's a bloody nightmare". that is reigned in.

Tomorrow I will not have to work all day while they watch TV.

MrsRV Wed 29-Jul-15 20:15:57

Tomorrow I won't leave CBeebies on all day because I feel rotten. We will go out.

MrsRV Wed 29-Jul-15 20:47:15

cbeebies do that mean thing where they repeat all of the mornings programmes too... i'm sure it's for added guilt factor.

Tomorrow I will not shout. Even when DS1 is winding me up I will walk out of the room and not shout.

Tomorrow (today!) I will not shout at my 3 DS's when they get games/toys out then fail to put them away.
I will play with them. I get the paints out ����

Ladymoods Thu 30-Jul-15 01:02:20

Feeling your pain gallivanting, 7 year old dd has the same issues.

Tomorrow I will put my phone in a different room to the one we are in.
I will sit and listen to them both read to me.
We will laugh lots. Hopefully.
