It is day 14 of the Blogtober challenge and today is finding out the meaning behind my blog name.
I am sure my blog name is pretty self explanatory, ‘StressedMum’. Yes I am a Mum and I get stressed.
As you know I have 3 children my stepson D who is 21, my stepson S who is 18 and lives with us, and our Daughter C who is nearly 13.
When they were little, they would argue over stupid things and could not be left alone for 2 minutes. They were all horrible, and I tell them this.
Car journeys would be a nightmare. S would sit there winding C up, and stare out of her window, C would be going mad at him looking out of her window. The problem was S would do it to wind her up. Not just glance out, but how can you tell someone off for looking out of a window. We used to just tell them both off. Now they get in the car and they laugh and joke about it.
S and C have a very strong bond now. The banter that goes on between them could make a great comedy show. They are both so funny, and so protective of each other. Although they do still argue, and especially with C being unwell and suffering badly at the moment, so we do still need to step in at times.
D has always been the quiet sly one of the 3, and was a nightmare.
D will wind S up so much, and I am the one that has to listen to them moaning and complaining about the other one, they are both as bad as each other.
Being a Mum is stressful and never a day goes by without one drama or another. The day I decided to start my own blog and thinking of a name, was a very stressful day, and it just seemed so apt.
But all 3 are fantastic kids, I am a very lucky Mum and would not have my life any different.
