Once again I hired a mother's helper for one morning a week for the summer. It was my intention to use this time to garden, clean, mow the lawn....get stuff done. Lil' C had other ideas in mind and would not stop crying for me if I was in or around the house. For this reason, my plans had to shift.
I have now been driven from my house for the 3 hours and forced to spend some time by myself, doing whatever I want. I have to admit it is difficult to leave the mountain of housework and gardening behind but so nice to have some ME time :) Over the last few weeks I have spent this time getting a massage with my best friend La, spent lots of time in a coffee shop checking emails, blogging and reading, went to an appointment at Z's new school and have done some shopping :) It is heaven to have this time to myself and it is all thanks to Lil' C :)
I will have to remember this fabulous gift she has given me when she is a teenager and driving me CRAZY ;)
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
