Monday Monday

Me and Princess Lollipop took Drama Teen to college in the morning and then returned home and had a quiet day at home. I spent the day working up the courage to get Princess Lollipop in the bath and get her hair done. It wasn't quite as bad as I expected, although it did take quite a long while, with lots of avoidance techniques from Princess Lollipop. I'm going to make sure I do her hair regularly this week so it doesn't get so tangled and get it back to soft and silky condition.

Little Prince had Drama Club after school, so we didn't have to go and get him till later in the afternoon. He was in a foul and rough mood when he got home, so he had to have his evening medication, which we normally try to avoid. Princess Lollipop was fine at first then she started to demand to play on his iPod Touch and wouldn't play nicely. She had a complete and utter meltdown when it was taken off her and just wouldn't calm down. In the end Drama Teen took Little Prince upstairs to play while I got Princess Lollipop to sleep, she woke up an hour or so later in a much better mood, but of course didn't want to go to bed at a sensible time!

During the evening I got to have a long phone chat with a good friend. She is going through her second adoption and things aren't going smoothly at the moment, I hope the next meetings with the Social Workers help her to see which is the best way forward. Thinking about you...
