My four year old daughter turned to her little brother on Sunday and said with a happy smile on her face 'Mummy and Daddy are being nice to each other today.'
This follows on from the night before of her saying ' Mummy why are you and Daddy always angry? Be happy Mum smile.'
This comment certainly hit me. Hubby and I talked about it later that night realising that even though we thought we were doing ok with our stress levels around the renovation there was an obvious tension.
So Sunday we decided to have a bit of fun and embrace Halloween with the kids.
And since then we have been making more of an effort to remain calm, go take time out if needed and try and just enjoy the process. As they say 'life is about the journey.'
