If Mama Ain't Happy...

...ain't NOBODY happy! Isn't that how the old saying goes? Well, I think it's not like that at all. I think the saying should be "If EVERYONE is happy, Mama is happy".

The past week or two have been trying. Little Guy is going through a phase (or at least we sincerely hope its just a phase) where he's been disobedient and naughty. He's been mean to his little friends at daycare, and throws fits around the house for no reason that we can see.

This has had me tied up in knots. Like any Mom, I want my kids to be happy, healthy and well-adjusted. I want them to obey their parents and caregivers, and be the lovely little joys I know they can be.

Yesterday Little Guy finally came out of his funk a little bit, and is now having a second day of being a great little fella once again. Hurrah!! Now that my boys are both happy, this Mama is happy too!!

Happy Baby Boy (first time I captured his little smile on film):

Happy Little Guy (being his usual silly self):


  1. Wonder if it's just some jealousy showing itself. Ours have done that when a new baby has appeared, but you've probably already thought of this.

    Tiring, isn't it?

    Btw, the photos are adorable...and mothering 2 is certainly keeping you busier than ever, I'll bet.

    Take time for yourself. :)

  2. What lovely photos! Don't worry, I'm sure it's just a phase. I don't know whether it gets any better when they CAN tell you what is wrong though! My eldest is 16 today! Arghhhhhhh!

  3. PS My word verification was "monstere" so hope that's the end of any monster behaviour!!! Ha ha!

  4. Is he getting tired at school? My eldest went through a pahse like this because of tiredness. xxx
