The Very Ordinary Moments {The Ordinary Moments}

Sometimes I fear that I paint to good of a picture. I worry that people read this blog and think, all she writes about is the good stuff. I have to a admit, when I started blogging, I had aspects of thinking, god they have a wonderful life, nothing ever seems to go wrong or they are the perfect family..Β Now I realise thats not the case.. Its very easy to paint a perfect picture of happiness and brush over the bad bits.

Last week we went to the Children’s Museum and on a whole Moo and H were so well behaved, but there were times when it got a tad hairy and resulted in me raising my voice. Its inevitable and its normal.

This particular picture was taken half way round the museum, Moo had seen an arty/crafty/toy section and wanted to go in it to play so she got a little whingy, which resulted in winding up H! H on the other hand wanted to drive the “car” and Moo got there first which resulted in H crying and Moo smiling.

With a quick change over and a slight unruly Moo for all of 10 seconds behaving likeΒ a monkey {quite literally!} and a tear stained H, this is what I captured.. A normal ordinary moment which I am sure happens to everyone! It lasted a matter of minutes and once Moo had had her time in the play section everything was back to normal!

  • Ahhh but it’s these things we tend to forget but they shape our little ones, especially in terms of bonding with their siblings! Popping over from the Ordinary Moments linky x

  • Ha sounds about right. I think reading people’s blogs and seeing their social media accounts can sometimes appear like they have a perfect life, but I think we all like to try and showcase the best bits don’t we? But parenthood isn’t always perfect and our children rarely are ha! xx

  • Know what you mean about people appearing to have ‘perfect’ lives, sometimes it can be refreshing to realise that they have off moments too. It’s great that your little ones were so well behaved for so long, and from my own experience as a child my sisters and I loved winding each other up, I think it’s universal with siblings!

  • Hahahaha that picture tots looks like my kids when we go absolutely anywhere! The world literally is their playground!
    I think many blogs seem like the perfect picture because the majority probably want to remember the good times or perhaps are proud of what theyre doing good? Don’t be afraid of putting the good stuff out there its uplifting to see and teaches other mothers what they can try too. Mine often has quite sad posts but thats just where we are in our life…

  • Oh yes we get this on a regular basis. You are right, it is really easy to just write about the good parts. I often try to say about motherhood being tiring, or mundane, or not so good at times, because let’s face it is. Good on you for writing about the not so lovely parts- just yesterday my husband took the girls to a party and they basically clung to him the entire time, whinging and not playing. So in the end he took them home half way through. πŸ˜‰
