Kid’s Clothes Week: Day 4 (an exercise in fatigue and frustration!)

Pretty much as the title suggests, KCW day four was a bit of a non-event here. I had good intentions but got thwarted at every turn – and was just so tired I couldn’t be bothered thinking my way out of it all. Leggings? Only had the wrong type of elastic. Dress? No dark fusible interfacing for the dark navy bodice. Agh. I did finish off the tutus for child care, but there’s no sewing involved there so I don’t feel like claiming them as KCW projects. You know I was tired because I don’t even have any photos for you!

I thought I would post, however, to say thanks to everyone who commented and messaged me privately with suggestions about Hugo and the medicine situation. We’re working our way through the list! We visited our doctor yesterday who pointed out he won’t remember us forcing him to take his medicine in a few years, and to just try our best to get it into him. I guess it’s all about perspective. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to share your experiences and for checking we were doing okay. We are okay – just weary.

The good news is that Hugo had a decent night last night and has been pretty happy today (even if he’s still not really eating/drinking/taking medicine well). The even better news is that today’s Friday and Alex will be around to take half the burden over the weekend!

Happy Friday, have a great weekend, and I’ll be back tomorrow with a post that includes both photos AND some finished items of clothing for KCW. I hope!

    Hang in there – it’s times like these that parenting sucks. It’s draining, you forget to look after yourself (and frankly don’t often have the time) and end up sick on top of it. If there is anything we can do let us know. xxx
