I think we have a better handle of things. For example we have squeezed our budget so E does longer days at the childminder's. 9-4 instead of his usual 9-1.30. His daddy has more of a role in his day to day which is great. My dh is a very hands on dad anyways but he is practically doing this solo.
I am here for cuddles and soothing of egos in both directions.
I think I prefer this to E watching Mickey Mouse clubhouse for hours and me not joining in with his play.
I think I will feel less neglectful, less guilty.
I think E will be happier too although he hasn't been sad except when he crinkles his nose and asks " mummy you poorly?" And I say yes but I will be fine.
|The nose crinkle|
I pray that I will get over this and become more productive in our family.
Say a prayer for my Mr E if you get a chance, he is probably missing his mummy.
