5 year old twin boys, a stinking cold and general anxiety don't go well together. I've finally gone to bed and they're still up with their Grandad. My kids were very well behaved for everyone but one of the boys is.very cheeky. I've been very firm with him and if I wasn't feeling so lousy it'd be ok. I am though, fed up of their poor manners. Having to pull them up or choose to ignore cheek is very wearing. I suppose when my kids were wee I was in my 20s with lots of energy, no illness. and a code of behavior for them to follow.
They're staying overnight and usually sleep well. Their basic natures are nice enough. I'm not like a friend who adores her grandchildren and is happiest when with them. I love them and it's important to me that their lives go well but their upbringing is too different to my ideas and I can onlyydo my best.
Anyway, that's a rant over and I. tell them I love them see the good in them and kiss them goodbye.
I hope everyone has as good a break as is possible and we all feel better when it's by.
Love to everyone, Deb x
