I sometimes look at my personal facebook page which is full of smiling children painting, playing outside or making cakes and wonder what people think? Sometimes friends say things like ‘I don’t know how you do it?’ and I have to clarify that each photo is just a snapshot, each cake probably resulted in an argument over who got to stir or lick the bowl, trips to the park start with discussions over who is wearing what coat, shoes or wellies, it can take me 10 minutes to get everyone out of the house.
I’m not complaining, I know how lucky I am, but that doesn’t mean that some days aren’t frustrating and difficult. No family nearby means everything is down to us and sometimes we struggle a little bit.
Hopefully this video explains it better than I can.
