Those lovely images you have in your head of your child sleeping through the night, eating all meals you have lovingly prepared and being an absolute angel at all times then slap yourself upside the head cause you are dreaming.
Anyone thinking of having a baby should have to spend dinner time and bedtime with a toddler going through terrible 2’s. How is it possible that your child can be hungry all day yet come to dinner time hate all food including foods they liked the previous day.
Bedtime is no better. It is like putting a mini drunk person to bed EVERY night! Come bedtime they will be really hungry and really thirsty. And there will be a lot of singing.
I guarantee after an afternoon with a 2 year old going on 22 that is going bat shit crazy because you gave them water when they screamed for juice and your lovely little pre child bubble will go pop.
But don’t let it put you off. For all the tears and tantrums (yes sometimes me) it is the best thing I have ever done and ever will do.
This will be my last post until 2017 so I am wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
