Tears. Aches and pains. Worry. Nerves. Frustration. Hormones. Tiredness.
It hasn’t been a good day. All of the above have been showcased by my daughter. And some of them by me, too. The need for full scale bucking bronco toddler-wrangling hasn't helped, either.
I’m too shattered to think of a funny line to insert here.
I’m not sure why I felt the need to share this. I don’t normally mention the run-of-the-mill difficult days. 
They happen. Quite often, like today, on the fourth day of my husband’s four day shift. 
He’s off from tomorrow. Reinforcements are on their way.
But like the lady says in the soul-soothing song below, this was one day I really could have done with my firecatcher, rainmaker, soothsayer, guardian, plate-spinner, peacemaker and liontamer.

  1. Hi,
    Read through all your posts last night - wow....so moved and impressed by your writing. As a fellow PW Mum, it's like reading my autobiography. Will be an avid follower from now on. Much love and respect, Rachelxx

  2. Thanks, Rachel. I'm so glad it resonates with you. We're part of an exclusive club, us PWS parents. A club that on some days, like yesterday, I'd rather not be a part of. But a club that on other days, thank God, where the membership card feels like a Golden Ticket.

  3. Who forgot to put her Bravado Shield© on this morning? Keep on keeping on. x
