Today started at 5am.
I spring cleaned my bedroom, took out everything stored under the bed and polished and hoovered within an inch of my life!
Got my daughter her morning fruit, made breakfast, provided more snacks.
Finally managed to get in the shower, and get out the door for 11am, I’m not totally sure what I was actually doing for the whole 6 hours but it didn’t involve enjoying a lazy Sunday morning with a cup of tea in bed!
Took my daughter to get her feet measured and bought her some new wellies, shoes and other bits, on the way home I had that overwhelming feeling of “I’m an actual parent, I have a daughter”. I still don’t believe it sometimes even though she’s 3 1/2. I also felt like a proper grown up, in charge of my life and providing for another human.
There are a few things that make me feel like a real grown up; buying stamps and having a booklet in my purse, and on a blowy day, thinking “oh good day for the washing to be out!
Home for lunch, Indiana got her arm stuck in a chair whilst helping, dealt with tears, then we walked into town for some stuff I’d forgotten. More snacks and a bit of down time for Indiana, I still managed to find “stuff” to do, when we got home.
An hour out with my sister and her kids, home, more cooking, feeding, washing up, more tears brought on by tiredness, stories, teeth, then bed.
Saying goodnight to my baby girl, and feeling my heart burst with love for her makes the challenges of the day fade into insignificance.
To all you parents out there, we’re doing an amazing job, even though it doesn’t always feel like it when we’re battling the daily storms!
