It's been one thing after another this morning first my sons routine was put out of wack because his favourite breakfast ran out yesterday and I haven't had the chance to get him more so he went into tantrum mode and everything was a struggle his clothes were too cold put them in the dryer then they were too hot. His socks weren't the right colour, his shoes were too tight, then I had to bribe him with riding his scooter to school because it was after 8 o'clock. Everything was a tantrum. Granted he doesn't have the regular screaming tantrums other kids have, he sits on the bed puts the blanket over his head covers his ears closes his eyes and sings (baby shark at the moment but it changes). Finally got him to school and managed to be there on time so no tantrum there.
Got home and realised I left my keys in the house. Thankfully managed to open the window near the front door

Sending you much love @BabyDragon . Sounds like it was a bit of a "when it rains, it pours" morning, but you got through it (and the rest of the day). How was your afternoon?

It was definitely a rough morning but putting that aside the rest of the day went okay. Did food shopping and got his cereal thank God it's Wednesday tomorrow as he has tuckshop which means not having to do his lunch up tonight. And I found all of his socks today so he has the right colour socks.
Hoping tomorrow goes better but in saying that it is state of origin dress up day at the school tomorrow and he is funny about these days as he wants to join in but doesn't like wearing different clothes to school so we have discussed just wearing a maroons jacket over his school uniform so we will see what happens in the morning going to send his school jumper as well anyway just incase.

Sorry @Darcy I didn't reply sooner been really busy my Mr 6 wants to start a YouTube channel and with recent events he can finally do that so been going between house work setting up an account and preparing a first video for him to do which works in with my YouTube channel.
Other than that I have been trying to decide what to do about This

Taking on your 3 half siblings is a big thing, will you get any financial/emotional support with this? These precious little ones would come to you wounded and whilst in desperate need of appropriate love and care may take time to adjust/trust. Children however are remarkably adaptable, it might be harder for the adult/s in the house to adjust to 3 extras including a toddler.
Only you can decide this, perhaps connecting with your pdoc or therapist to get a professional opinion might be worthwhile especially if your heart is full of love for them. You might find if you do decide to take them, you might need some "preventative" therapy sessions to keep you in remission.
Is it possible to have them for a month for a "holiday" and see how you manage?
