Aren't children great...



You're a new parent and you're chatting with "experienced" friends about bringing up little ones. So you take a look at their family snaps and most of them will look like the ones above, a lovely trip to the park with the grandparents. Feeding the ducks and taking some sweet pictures for the album. That's what they tell you anyway, for some reason we parents like to lull you into a false sense of security I'm not entirely sure why. I guess it's the same as when my friends without kids ask what labour's like and I say... hmm I don't really remember but it was the best day of my life (I do remember but I'm not going to scar you for life). Anyway I'm about to shatter all happy family day out illusions, time for the truth are you ready for it?

Yep 95% of the time we spent at the park that day was spent like this! I don't blame Ava, it's entirely my fault for letting her skip her nap (poor wee soul) but that is the reality of life. Children are only agreeable if all the planets are aligned in a certain way and every need of theirs has been met to the fullest. However they will teach you these lessons everyday there's no need to take notes just enjoy the ride! Having Ava WAS the best day of my life and seeing her joy at feeding the ducks was worth the rest of the tantrums I dealt with that day.
Oh and of course I scrapped it! ....
