Taking one bite and grumpy moodswings

Taking one bite and grumpy moodswings

I have literally spent the past week telling myself "What have I done wrong?". One minute Noah is caring, loving and absolutely amazing.

My kiddies absolutely love slime at the moment, playing with it and making it. So we jumped at the chance to review two new products: Slime Factory and Gross Magic. They are great and full of slime.

This has been the most stressful week for parenting!

I literally do not know what to do with myself this week. It all exploded on Saturday morning and things have been a rocky roller-coaster ever since. Noah, my 6 year old, has been on and off stroppy for a few months now. Nothing too major, throwing arms around when he doesn’t get his own way.

Noah – 4 years

It’s finally here, the little four, its crept up on us and is at our door. Many days and many nights, he’s been growing and has been a delight. He learns all day, he learns with pride, the beaming smile he just can’t hide. We love him so, you cannot deny, the happiness he gives us, why? Because he’s ours and because he’s a joy, my little Noah the birthday boy.
