{Ordinary Moments 2015} – 13/52 – Relentless

One word to sum up the past few days. A few weeks ago Yve’s got chicken pox from Pre-school, took a while to heal and get past the sore stage, then we were in holiday prepping mode, then actually went on holiday, then Halle caught the chicken pox half way through, and then little Phoenix who has the worst case out of the three of them. We’re now on day three of full chicken pox and he has been so out of character at times bless him, he’s wanted Mummy to snuggle with almost 24hrs a day, he is absolutely covered in the spots, massive lumps on his head too. It’s awful seeing your little ones suffer and theres not much you can do to stop it. All you can do is comfort them in their time of need and offer the mini treatments as well. We’ve been doing lots of honey and oat baths, calamine lotion and plenty of fluids. They’ve coped amazingly considering the intensity of it all.
The tiredness got to everyone over the weekend, the switching off from holiday mode, trying to get the kiddies into some kind of normalcy once again all for it to change again next week. bonkers here right now. i’ve been moody, stressy and not myself to be honest. Tiredness can be such a major point in how your day is going to pan out don’t you think?
To go with all of this, we only got given to go ahead for our house move on Thursday – we move next Saturday and we have a week to pack our house up. Mr is at work until Thursday so I think it’s safe to say that it’s going to be busy, tiring and relentless this week also. Entertaining recovering children, whilse packing and trying to be supermum – it’s going to be tough but i’ll do my best!
In the whirlwind of extra breastfeeds to help comfort by boy through the night, the tired little girls wanting Mummy’s full attention, the feeling of being so helpless as a parent, the feelings of wondering if i’m doing a good enough job, watching the girls heal well, tiredness setting in on a regular occurrence, planning this house move, and trying not to lose my brain cells – I’ve embraced those extra snuggles, and am actually needing more myself too. Having the thought that my cuddles help to comfort them is the best feeling and over rides all those things just mentioned.
 The next few weeks are going to be strenuous, heart aching to leave a house we’ve made a home, adapting to the change while all this is going on too, but we’ll do it. Change is whats needed in life sometimes, and in this case, change is going to be good for our family, a fresh new chapter.
A fresh new page, together.

    Bless, so unfair, 2 of mine were like this also so little, I hope it really turns quickly xx

  2. Sounds very rough, but all worth it once the pox have been and gone (never to return!) and you're settled in your new home. Why does everything come at once?! x

    Oh my GOODNESS, those pictures are intense! Poor you and your poor little ones. I hope that all feel better soon!

  4. Oh bless is heart Nat it sounds and looks like he has got it so badly- Mads was the same but LL didn't get it. It sounds like it's been a tough few weeks for you, and moving house isn't fun at the best of times, least of all when you all exhausted as it is. Keep smiling and just think soon it will all be over and you will be in a new home ready for a new start. Sending lots of love. xx
