The ups and downs of living with a teen

My Week – 30/05/16

These weeks are really flying past far too quickly, is it really time for another of my weekly update posts.

Well this week has certainly been a rollercoaster of emotions, my Daughter has still been suffering and going through a crash still, so has not been able to go to school, so we have been doing school work at home when she has been up to it.  She has been in a lot of pain again this week and relying on pain killers more 🙁

Wednesday, saw the #MillionsMissing, which was a global protest for ME/CFS sufferers, and those who could not make the protest, posted a picture of a pair of their unworn shoes with the #.  I took part, as you will already know from my post, and my news feed was flooded with pictures, it was heartbreaking, especially those of children. It really did affect me and I have had a down few days because of it.


This weekend saw me fulfil my happiest role of being mother hen, to all my kids, for the first time in a very long time, I had all 3 of my kids under one roof for the weekend.  My stepsons, came on Friday and went home today, which is why I have been so quiet this weekend.  I have been at my happiest (until they went home).  My Daughter has loved having both her big brothers here, if the boys went missing, you would always find them sitting with her in her bedroom chatting, or just relaxing with her, they have both spoilt her rotten, and when we went out for a family meal on Saturday their protectiveness shone through.  A very long way from the sibling arguments that they used to have none stop when they were younger.

Yesterday, one of the boys girlfriends came to stay as well and my Daughter was in her eliment, as she adores her and they get on so well.  I think it is a bit of back up having another girl here.

Bear could not believe all the extra people to play with, he has had such a great time, and Max has loved having his best mate here for the weekend.

Although, it has been a rough week for my Daughter, the weekend has really made up for it and my little family felt complete.

Hope you have had a great week x
