Hello Monday… how in the hell did you sneak up on us so quickly. Perhaps it was the fact that I slept in until around 10am both mornings of the weekend. Can you believe it? I am blaming my new buddies Rach & Bobbie for keeping me up until 1:30 talking each night, ha ha ha. Anyway, I really did and didn’t feel one bit guilty. I can’t even tell you the last time I slept in that late.
I really am in the light at the end of the toddler tunnel my friends and I am that bloody excited it isn’t funny. It turns out I don’t cope at all well with the first 4.5 years of childhood. They really wear me down – yes I need to add a bag of cement and harden up, I know I know. When I am in that haze of toddlerville I feel like it is never going to end, but then all of a sudden they are toilet trained, in a big bed, feeding themselves and off to e-Kindy. I am there, I am really there… the toddler HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!!! Amen.
No more dummies…
I knew I was definitely in “the light” on Saturday morning when I didn’t get out of bed until 11am (don’t judge me!) and that whole time I was left in peace – that never happens, they usually come in about 8 times before 8am if I am trying to have a sleep in. Don’t worry, I could hear them playing, they were ok. Clancy even got himself some Cornflakes. He is definitely growing up. 4 and a half years old, the time actually does go by pretty quickly it just doesn’t seem like it at the time, when you are up to your eyeballs in nappies and tantrums. And even though he has a psycho Mum he has turned out ok I suppose…
That’s my baby… growing up. I am very lucky to have 3 happy healthy boys… I know!
This morning when my alarm went off at 5am I was more than happy to bounce out of bed, feeling very refreshed from my very quiet, slow weekend of doing not much at all. We need to make the most of these weekends because soon things will speed up and the year will disappear. The weekends fill up so quickly and there doesn’t seem to be a spare moment.
So tell me, please… are you in the toddler haze?
Or are you in the light like me?
Perhaps you are a really patient Mum who loves nothing more than having a toddler around – peace out to you I say, I really do admire you!!!
Did you manage a sleep in on the weekend or did you have a 2 year old climbing on you at 6am?
