Its good to be a mum!
Today I had one of those moments, when you stop and look, think, I love this, it is wonderful to have George in my life! He is smiling and talking, trying to roll and even sit when lying back on my pillow.
He slept while I weeded the garden, he slept when I did my phone consults and then napped when I had friends for a cup of tea! I am grateful for the knowledge I have, to have spent the time setting up his sleeping routine so that it does make my life easier and does give me time to sit back and reflect on how lucky I am.
Today was day 2 of being home after a work road trip to Wellington, it was a mammoth trip but worth its hard work. I took a seminar for parents and teachers, focusing on the 1-4yr old age group, which was a breath of fresh air from winding and settling!
I had a few nerves in the morning as it has been a few months now since I have taken a seminar but it only took a few minutes before I got back into the swing of things. I do love working even though now with having George in my life it’s hard to juggle it all.
It all has been made much easier having my mother able to help. She came on the roadie to look after G and help ease the load of driving. The joy that Grandchildren bring for our parents and older generation is so special and unique, the love they have is so genuine because they are connected but without the same responsibilities. Well that is for some Grandparents, many now and in the past played much larger rolls, if not the main care-giving role of their grandchildren’s lives.
