Im back..

I am sorry I have been away so long. If I’m completely honest, I have not been having the best time recently. Not physically and most definitely not mentally, but that is okay. Sometimes, you have to not be okay, to get back to being okay, if you understand that. Anyway.

Little update into our lives since we last spoke. I have fully finished my college course (woo!) and am looking forward to my new journey at university starting in April. This means both M and E are at home full time with me now, and nursery doesn’t start back up till university starts, so we are spending an amazing amount of time together, and I realise every day how blessed I am to be able to do this with my two. Even still, some days I fail; today was one of those days.

I am 5 days post surgery (CT surgery- I am planning on doing a full post on this once my hand recovers) and the pain hasn’t been easy, in fact, it has stopped me doing some of the tasks I normally do. I have had some wonderful help especially in the cup of the coffee department (come on, who doesn’t need coffee with a 10-month-old!) but my favourite part of the day that I still get to enjoy? Bedtime.

Not because the kids go to sleep (they don’t, ever) but because we sit down together and read a book. M has been into books since he was little, and E is really starting to get a liking to them. Of course, I do all the silly voices and sounds, is there really any other way to read a book to children?? 

But for me, it’s seeing his face when the character does something funny or seeing E’s enjoyment at helping her brother pick a book that just wipes the day away.

the fights

the tantrums (there were plenty!)

the tears

all gone in those five minutes, and I feel like no matter what has happened, everything is okay. And I get to do it all again tomorrow, lucky me!
