One equals Six and Three...

JJ is just one year old and she requires the same amount (if not more) work than my six year old and three year old combined.

She unpacks, clings, whines, toddles towards me with a big grin, plays games. She feels all consuming at the moment.

She is currently on my lap 'helping' me type!

Hence my quiet blog of late. There are just not enough hours in the day and there is only so much you can do one handed.

I don't seem to be able to find anything that keeps her attention. I know she is only one but am I missing something obvious that she could be doing?

Life is good but very contained to places were a one year old is happy, so mainly home.

A friends dad just told me that parenting becomes easier when all your children are 21 years old ...... only 20 years to go!


  1. I feel for you, hope things get easier soon (much sooner than 20yrs!!)

  2. It is a trial sometimes isn't it? Give her things to pack and unpack. The twins had each other to occupy themselves through that stage so I don't remember it being terrible. They are full-on at the moment though so I am sharing your pain x
