Its ok not to be ok....

April 20, 2020

I think we are all going a bit crazy, 
stuck indoors 24/7 there's going to be shouting and crying and it feels like there is no alone time.

You and your kid's routines have gone out the door and your lucky to remember what day of the week it is.

I'm currently near my boiling point with two kids and a husband at home, I can't really complain about the husband as I can just tap out and hide in the bedroom for a minutes peace.

To be honest I would be lucky to get 5 minutes to myself before the kids and dog find me and all want a piece of mummy patience.

Since the lockdown I think I've shouted more times than the whole year, the 5-year-old doesn't want to do any school work and the 2-year-old has decided that words are beneath her and screaming is the only way to communicate.
God forbid I forget the dog who needs something in her mouth 24/7 too and she doesn't care if those toes are attached or not.

Oh and sh*tting indoors when she's just come in.

I should feel lucky, my husband is home now as there's no work for him and no school run but I miss my family and those hours by myself.
plus I would love to cough without people giving me the side-eye.

My Depression is at its all-time high and the tablets don't seem to be working.

So this post has been sitting on my drafts for a few days as it just didn't feel like it was finished and I'm now sat here with one kid in bed and the other shouting at the game he's playing thinking to myself that I don't understand how I have made it this weekend.

Craig has been so ill that he hasn't been able to move from the bed the past couple of days so it's just been me looking after both kids and the dog and honestly I could have ended it so many times.

 I went and quit my job so that's going to be a bit stressful for a while till that settles down and I'm really hoping that the dog stops biting everything and lily stops her screaming.

How have people managed the lockdown with kids so far?

I would love some tips and tricks to keep my sane for however, this lockdown lasts.
