Another weekend over then.

A lovely one though. Full of wine drinking, Doritos and cheesecake. Charlotte’s gone now.. the kids are raucous and bad moody, tired and grumpy and we feel much the same!!

Not enough sleep. But then, when is there ever? 🙄

We were just discussing my maternity leave and how weird the passage of time is depending on what you’re thinking about.

This weekend has gone so fast and yet the weekend itself seems to be pretty long lasting. Being that it’s just a mere three days instead of two.

We are in the process of trying to organise something not too special for my 30th birthday in about 6 weeks time and were just saying that the weekend in question will mark the first anniversary of the start of maternity leave with Ella.

How is that possible?!?! It was 5 minutes since she was born and now it seems so unfair that she’s already nearly one.. ella-smiley.gif
And yet.. that beginning seeming such a short time ago… in fact seems so long ago when I think of October 12th, the day before Rowan was 2 was the day that our new sofa arrived.. I remember Rowan walking in the lounge after her nap (it was delivered whilst she was sleeping..) she took one look and said… ‘oooooh Niiiice’ and chuckled this deep little chuckle.. it seems an age away and yet was less time… roo-smiley.gif

We were also just saying how lovely that Rowan says ‘Pee…tatoes’ and ‘Bee… nanas’… and such a shame that she has progressed from ‘bee-yay’ to boy and from ‘jay-yay’ to jelly …. slow down… I say little-nut-tree-smiley.gif This is the Little Nut Tree…

Thanks to BN for my little smileys…. so cool 🙂

    Hi–it is amazing how fassst they grow! I sometimes wonder if it’s all tooo fast.

    Sleep deprivation, the existence of a parent can really wear you out. I use to underestimate how being tired impacted me, now I don’t (smile).

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
