I’m not going to get so deep tonight. I’m glad to get some of my angst out about being a parent, though. It’s not an easy job, but it’s one I love very much.
I’ve had a pretty lazy afternoon, if I’m honest. My hubby is back at work tomorrow and the festive period is now officially over. Monster doesn’t start school until Wednesday, so I have a chance to go out and do some bits with him, which will be lovely. It’s amazing how quickly time flies as you get older… It’s also pretty depressing.
I can’t help but feel like my son is growing up way too quickly. It doesn’t seem like yesterday I held him in my arms for the first time. I love watching him grow and develop, I do, but at times it’s so difficult to accept. The other day he said to me, “Mummy, can we stop the days so they pause?” I thought about this for a moment and I said, “I wish we could my lovely”… I didn’t actually elaborate as I was deep in thought, but luckily my husband stepped in to explain.
It got me thinking and it made me realise *really* I have to savour every single moment with him. He is my world and if I blink, I’m going to miss some of the most special parts of his life. Being a Mum is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced and I really don’t want to miss a thing.
Hoping 2016 has been a good start for you all. I have done nothing but reflect so far, but I’m happy. Next week I think I am going to take the time to plan a bit more. I have a new planner coming and I can’t wait!
Ta ta for now!
