We did too much today. We’ve done too much all week to be honest. Slow mum has got the balance completely wrong and my children are consequently ‘overcooked’, overwrought and over tired. This evening bubbling over into tears and tantrums. School, nursery, clubs, play dates and birthday parties. It’s just been too much and we need to put the breaks on. I need to be confident enough to opt out every once and a while. We can’t do everything and have family time and slow time too. Children need head space and we need head space and we need to make sure as parents that we protect this time. I’ll be starting afresh tomorrow, rebooting and ‘going with the slow’ again and I’m really looking forward to it!
