So tonight I am writing my newest blog post at my breakfast bar with a glass of wine. I never usually have wine on a week night unless I really need it…and I definitely need one tonight.
It has been one of those weeks. Since Saturday, hubby has been here to help with little man for just one bed time – tonight.
I am officially exhausted.
Work is so busy at the moment.I said at 8am on Monday morning that it was going to be one of those weeks, and it is certainly living up to those unfortunate expectations.
Over the last few days, little man and I have become inseparable. From bed times to bath times, and nursery pick up and collections he makes me so proud when he looks at me all calls me mummy.
His little quirky mannerisms are all coming in to their own. He has such an amazing personality and it will only continue to grow.
I may be sat exhausted, moaning to everyone about how busy things are at the moment, but I wouldn’t change it.
Hold on, I would stop my obsession with Love Island. That is keeping me from getting my early 9pm bed time.
My boss’s wife had a baby at the weekend so he is now off for 2 weeks. I said to my colleague today, if someone were to give me a newborn baby to look after, I am not sure I would know what to do with it.
Looking back at everything that we have gone through as a new family over the past 22 months is huge. It is also a blur. Could I do it again? I really do not know.
The thing is – you find a way. You always do.
What is meant to be will be, and that is the bottom line. I could have another 1 child, or 2 children. Maybe no children.
We could move across the country, we could emigrate in a few years time to a different country. Who honestly knows?
So at the moment, I am taking the week in my stride – calmly and collectively.
This weekend my parents are coming up for the weekend which will be lovely. Nice for little man to spend some time with them, and also myself.
The following weekend, my in laws are on their way up to help with looking after little man. I have to work on a big event so they are coming to lend a hand with childcare and just to see their grandson.
So, we have a busy few weeks coming up. I will continue to breathe. To take time for me, but also to enjoy every part of toddlerhood. Because to me, that is the most amazing part of this crazy parenting journey.
