I was woken early by a friend who needed a baby sitter for 8am! Of course I said I would do it. So she brought her daughter over and we hung out for a while. That was gift 1. Then after a lazy cup of tea and some chocolate we all went shopping! Two toddlers and a newborn in the backseat of the car at nap time... not the best idea as they were too excited to sleep (the baby slept though I dont know how)
I also lent her my ears... We went through pretty much the exact same situation when we had our first babies, and we have both had a really tough time ever since. Although hers is harder now that she has thrown a new baby into the mix! So I listened to the new list of troubles and gave the best advice I could. Hope it helps..
It was a long day of tantrums and pram escaping and three year old fights but my second gift for the day was to treat myself to some new warm clothes. I found everything I wanted at the prices I had hoped for! Brilliant. I also treated myself to a bath after my Quinn was fast asleep in bed xxx a busy but good day
