Following on from yesterday's post, my heart is full with my eldest boy right now.
These photos were taken on his birthday, loving himself sick with his new bike.
He had his first play date this Wednesday gone – as in a proper, another mum picked him up from kinder, I wasn't there playdate. All by himself.
I told him he should listen to his little friend's mum, I told him to ask where the toilet was, I told him to have a great time.
He was so excited.
Having Luca gone all day should have meant I had a little more freedom to get stuff done but instead I found myself at a loss, distracted by thoughts of him, wondering if he was okay.
Later that evening, after he had returned home and gone to bed happily exhausted, my phone vibrated with this message;
Luca is a lovely lil fella & he is welcome here any time.
I am proud to be his mother.
Bless!!! Makes all those hard days where you think you’re going to strangle them worthwhile hey?
both posts really touched my heart, every day another step forward for both of you.
You are so sweet with your warm and fuzzies. And what a knack you have for blogging them. Just beautiful. X
This line, “Having Luca gone all day should have meant I had a little more freedom to get stuff done but instead I found myself at a loss, distracted by thoughts of him, wondering if he was okay.” pretty much sums up motherhood. If I have time without my kids, I will get nothing done unless I have a very specific list spelled out.
Yes! So worth it. And just lovely feedback to receive when you’re otherwise convinced you’re fucking things up royally.
Thank you, Carol. We’re trying! xxx
Thank you, Bec.
I love my kid so much. I hope when he gives us a parenting report card some day, it will show just how much.
I was so annoyed with myself, Victoria! All those hours frittered away. Of course, I still had two other little people to deal with but still…
