Just like most people, I have a never ending list of things I’d like to do more of / less of / better, etc.! And it seems this year, I’ve finally started ticking some of those things off the list. Now we’re half way through February, it feels like they are no longer just new year fads, but things I have added to my routine. New habits that I plan to keep up. They’ve all definitely had a positive impact and I thought I’d share them with you to maybe inspire you to do the same.
I’ve found myself recently thinking of more blog posts that are not particularly children related. This blog has been very much a parenting blog since the day it was created. I’ve used it to talk about both my pregnancies, the baby days, the toddler months, things we’ve done as parents, things that have worked, things that haven’t. And I do love writing about all that, especially as it forms a huge part of my life.
Since having Sienna, I feel more ‘mum’ than I ever have before! My life is certainly more dominated by my children, as it should be. But, I’m finding I want to be me a lot more too. When I only had Ella, I had a lot more time to be me. Her naptime was my time. At the weekends, she could spend time playing with her dad while I got stuff done, or nipped out somewhere. She slept through the majority of nights, so I had a good rest.
