as we were leaving for the indoor soft play my front door went funny and I couldn't lock it, so with Ellie screaming in her buggy outside I had to get a screw driver and fix the door.
Then as I was so harassed I left without my keys, when we got home I realised (also desp for a wee!!!!) and had to ring my Mum and wait outside the house for ten mins for her to bring the spare key
Ellie started to smack her face that hard again and again that her mouth was bleeding, the screams from her were HORRENDOUS. Really cant describe how bad it was. At one point she clawed at her face. Mum arrived and I went inside and sobbed.
Maybe I could have stopped her by letting her out, but then I would have been chasing her by the road, or I could have carried on walking (but was desp for the loo!! and would have had Grace joining in with the crying) but I was so tired and upset, really didn't have the energy to deal with it, I just wanted to pack my bags and walk away (but had no key to get into the house to pack!!!) I just sat there holding her hands to stop her.
Just wanted to tell some one and have a bit of a moan!
anniebear- much sympathy-- my sons reaction would have been the same- there isn't anything you can do to make it right for them at the time- it just all flies out.
Hope you had a relaxing evening
(don't worry about ss- once I was driving to pick up my husband and my son flipped because something was wrong- think the red light stayed on red too long or something- he was in the seat behind me so I couldn't see him, when I did catch a glimpse I almost passed out - he;'d given himself a HUGE nosebleed there was blood everywhere- he was caked- I was convinced I was going to get the SS call!)
