But then we went to the beach.
Olivia having the time of her life, my boys... whining...
The girls all playing nicely together, my boys in the background... whining...
With casts on her legs, which I am sure were awfully hot, and not being able to play in the water or the sand, Fiona still had a good time up until it was time for a nap.
The sun was shining, the waves were big (for the gulf), and we were surrounded by lots of friends. Really, quite the perfect set up for a photo-filled afternoon. Except that my models were cranky, tired, and freaking out about the sand. And I was tired and my patience was low- I just wanted to snuggle with my happy girl and talk with friends, as the boys got some good playtime in the ocean with their little friends. But my kids had a different plan for today- throw a fit and whine to go home and make life miserable for mom.
Its just been one of those weeks that I need a good two-day recovery from. I get woken up every hour by a whiny little boy or a hungry little girl. And now that the are sicknesses and fevers are gone, I have two boys who bodies are spent and just want to cuddle with me all day and night. Don't get me wrong, I love me some cuddle time with my babies. But its the whining to cuddle I just cant take.The house is in shambles and my head is just about to explode from all the whining.
Desperately need some good advice and some good books on how to make your kids stop whining. Because obviously telling them they sound like little girls and they need to grow up isn't working (just kidding!) Fiona gets her casts off this Wednesday for a whole week until her surgery. Planning on a lot of pool and beach time
for those sweet legs and praying my boys can get back to their easy-going selves so that its a bit more enjoyable.
