I have had kids on me all day and I need some space!

Today has been one of those gritty parenting days. The ones where the baby won't let you put her down, where the big kids won't stop making demands and where the hours seem to drag by.


I have cuddled, huddled, rocked, pat and even been rode as a pretend horse in the space of a few hours. I have been followed to every last corner of the house and screamed at to be picked up, put back down again, and repeated a dozen times. My point is, I have had kids on me all day and I need some space, because today, I am all touched out.

As much as I am looking forward to my partner walking through the door to help, I know I will be greeted with an affectionate hug. I love my husband, but today, I am all touched out.

I know that my baby needs me and that my eldest wants me. I know that my husband craves the physical connection. I know I am not alone and that this phase will pass but, today I am all touched out.

I have been here before and I know it will pass, so, for now, I will take a long hot shower, wash away the grittiness of the day and start again tomorrow. Because today, I am all touched out.

What do you do to get you through the tough parenting days? Let us know!
