Yesterday I posted on learning to smell the roses and slowing down the pace of life....... And today I write in the same context , slowing down and enjoying our kiddies.
It's a tough job, yes, one of the hardest I know , but rewarding in so many ways.
Yes my house is always a mess, and I've become a constant cleaning lady. The clothes I wear are from way back when , my shoes are few and eating out is a thing of the past ( now it's a trip to the V&A for the vibe& ice cream), and tv - what tv?
but goodness me is it worth it. This stage won't last forever , it's a day to day phase for us to take in and appreciate .
Loving my job is waking up to cheerful little boy, begging to get out of his cot , giving me morning hugs and kisses with smelly Ellie in my face. But goodness me those sweet kisses are priceless.
Next it's bottle making, climbing into bed with Teletubbies, Thomas, pingu or Barney. All snug and warm .
I'm no fan of the new technology and yes I will have to overcome that one day, but for now it's sand&water, messy meals, play dough, baking, outings to the park, sitting on the floor with puzzles, yes on the floor, Duplo building and endless book readings. Old school is cool. Not just a saying but so true x
After reading some great articles recently , it's great to pick some of the best advice.
