One Happy Boy

After feeling so bad yesterday, I felt much better today, hubby got up at7.30 to go o work and I could hear him talking with Munch in his bedroom, they both went downstairs and I had a blissful 1/2 on my own in bed. when daddy was on his way out to work, Munch came and got in bed with me and put on cartoon network, our peace didn’t lat long as daddy was banging around downstairs because he could not find his glasses and like everything else it was all everybody else fault bar his own, so we ended up getting up to look for the glasses.

Daddy eventually went off to work, Munch had an hour on the computer, then we got ready to go and do our bit of Christmas shopping in preparation for our visit to Grampy’s tomorrow, shopping was done, lunch was had in a nice little cafe, then we went to the card shop, at the till as we had a grand-dad card, lady said do you want this grand-dad mug for a £1.00, yes please said Munch, mug bought for grand-dad, as you have spent over £10 you can have this teddy bear for £4.99, yes please said Munch, now I was happy to buy the teddy for him, but I do think its a liberty the way that they are pushed in front of the children’s faces like that in these shops!!! Bit of food shopping and home, we phoned granny and both myself and the Munch had a nice chat with her and Munch is now watching Cloudy with Meatball’s, so I am going to get on with a bit of the housework whilst he is quiet.

Munch played and built some great things with his Lego after the film, we then had dinner and played a few games of Junior Monopoly till daddy came home and he took over playing with him. Munch was in a fab mood and was very giggly through out.

We had supper, story, snuggle time and Munch is now fast asleep. He was disappointed as Grampy had phoned to say that the weather forecast in his area was bad for tomorrow and as it’s a good 3 hour drive, we have decided not to go and he was looking forward to going, but we have said that we will go for a whole weekend rather than just a day in the New Year.

We have had a great day today Munch has been very happy today, very smiley, has asked for hugs and kisses, has been telling jokes and just been a joy to be with, it’s days like today that keep us going.

The Good, the Bad and the Good Again.

Well this morning started off very well, Munch came into our room a little earlier than I would have liked on a Sunday morning, especially after a lovely night last night filled with plenty of Bacardi, but he came in armed with a letter and had written to mummy and daddy I love you from Munch, what could we do after that, so we let him in, he watched Cartoon Network fo a while, then we put on the X Factor that we had recorded from last night, we watched just over half of it but Munch was starting to restless so we all got up.

I cooked a nice big Sunday breakfast of sausage, bacon, eggs black pudding, mushrooms and potato cakes. Munch did well, he ate some of his mushroom’s, egg, bacon and sausage, he tried the potato cake, and the black pudding but did not like them.

He asked to watch the Karate Film again, and went off to the living room to watch, when daddy went him, Munch was very rude and told daddy that he was not watching the film, daddy took offence at this and world war 3 broke out, daddy was shouting, Munch was shouting, which made daddy worse, now Munch has the upper hand and the control hat he wants, so out comes the language calling daddy a f—–g idiot, you f—–r, which enraged daddy even more, I dragged Munch upstairs and put him in his room and closed the door as he was being extremely violent. He was told he was not to leave his bedroom and he could stay there until told otherwise.

I was so angry with hubby, what was the point in all the work we had done with the play therapist, it is one of Munch’s little tricks to try to rile and recreate that chaotic , abusive lifestyle that to him was the norm for so many years of his precious life and hubby had played right into, what happened to our that is rude and not allowed – step.

Hubby went off in a strop with the dog because I told him what I though of him, Munch was upstairs wailing and that’s all it was a big noise and going on and on about wanting to go ice skating as that was what we were supposed to be doing today, but as a consequence of his behaviour was just not happening, I just said no we would not be going today, and he was to say upstairs until further notice.

Hubby came back with a face like a fiddle, I eventually let Munch down, he was acting like an angel and still though he was going to be able to go skating –  NO. He played on the computer for a short while, then engaged daddy in a spy game, by then hubby had stopped sulking, so off upstairs went they and came down with their spy costumes on, they did this for about half hour until Munch was bored with that.

Me and Munch went and made some jelly together to have for afters later, we then had lunch and got out all the paints and arts and craft bits and did some painting and sticking. After Munch had enough we went upstairs and played Junior Monopoly for an hour, Munch really enjoyed this and played it very well, we packed up in time for a nice quiet afternoon in front of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

After all the going’s on of this morning, I did not have the incline or the energy to do a Sunday roast, so am afraid Munch sat down to a Sunday dinner of beans on toast, followed by his orange jelly that he had made today.

Straight in the bath after were Munch played with all his toy mobile character’s as he usually does, he called out to me at one point and when I asked him what he wanted his reply was “love ya” aaaahhhh!!

TV, supper, story read and little man is now tucked up in bed, been a bit of a strange day today, daddy is in work, so lets hope he is in a better mood when he gets in, and tomorrow is another day.
