I made a promise to myself. The one day a week we spend as a family on a Sunday, when we do things together, I will not utter the words ‘come on’ or ‘hurry up’ to little man. I will walk along side him and walk without a purpose for just one day a week.
Then it came to me. I would leave my little man in the car without even thinking about it – maybe that’s bad? Maybe I am just a mother who doesn’t think about the negative impact quite as much as I should?
So Sunday I was definitely more excited than little man. We opened all his presents and then decided to go to Newfield Ice Cream Parlour for the morning. It had an amazing outdoor area for the little ones and a huge variety of ice cream.
After the weekends birthday events for little man, I had failed to remember that it was also my 1st blogging anniversary on the 21st August.
The last 2 years have flown by. I never knew I could feel so many different emotions as I have experienced having my little boy in my life.
Your life will become your idea of normal – it may not be everyone’s idea of normal. You may come up against families who do not agree that you should leave your child in nursery full time Monday – Friday.
I have felt slightly envious of everyone having time off in the sun – even though sometimes it can be more stressful looking after the children than sitting at a desk in an office for the day.
