{Living Arrows 2017} #25 Terrible Twos

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
Kahlil Gilbran

We are back with Living Arrows this week – I’m making it my mission to link up every twos weeks – especially since Ollie has started school, I want to make sure I include all three of them, and not just the littlest who is now the only one at home with me (sob!).

Talking of the littlest, since September hit, back to school started, and the seasons started to change, so has his mood. Mason has got a bad case of the ‘terrible twos’.

When I say bad, I’m talking full on melt downs, over absolutely nothing. Its a regular occurrence for his breakfast to be thrown across the room in the mornings. Having been through this twice before, I know the best plan of attack is to just ignore, but a couple of times this week he has got a rise out of me. It does get tedious, but I’m clinging on to the fact that its just a phase and ‘this too shall pass’.

This weeks photos are a mix – we had a smiley moment – and a moment of utter meltdown. This was because I told him he couldn’t have the toy that his brother was playing with.

I’m really hoping my happy smiley boys back soon – I miss him.

I’m hoping that once our new routine settles down a bit and he gets used to being the only one at home (sob sob), it’ll help. Until then – send me positive vibes!

    Oh bless him – we’re on the receiving end of some epic toddler meltdowns at the moment too, usually when he doesn’t get his own way about something! #LivingArrows

    Oh bless him! It can be so hard being little can’t it?! The moods! I remember T having complete meltdowns, massive meltdowns over pretty much nothing. I hope it passes quickly x
