Hello there! Things have been quiet my side for some reason. I haven’t been super busy or anything like that, I’ve just not been myself lately. I can’t pin point who, where, why or what but I think I’ve just been so consumed in my role as a Mom that I haven’t been concentrating on my other roles all that much. It’s also the last week of my time at home and will need to brace the big bad world again.
I am happy to go back to work but I’m starting to feel the anxiety of having to leave my little Aidy baby every morning. I know he will be in good hands. Our helper is really great with him (and Alyssa) and I feel blessed that we have her in our lives.
Aidan’s sleep patterns have been so weird lately too. One night he will sleep for a 8 hour stretch and then the next he’ll be up 3 or 4 times. This is so not going to be cool next week! Apparently it’s the Four month sleep regression and can last up to four weeks 😥 Even when he does sleep through I still find myself waking up wondering when he will wake up – and then I toss and turn until he eventually does. Let’s just hope that when I’m back at work, I’ll be mentally stimulated and tired enough for me to fall asleep quickly. I found this Sleep spray from Sorbet which actually helps me fall back asleep sometimes, but works best when I first put my head down.
Alyssa is doing very well and is so much happier than she was a few months ago. She just loves her brother now and he too is so fascinated with her. She is so funny – the other morning when i was putting her in the car to drive her to school, she said “Mom look there’s the moon.” Then once we got to school she spotted the moon once again and said “Mom, look the moon followed me to school” 😀
Her teacher has also mentioned that she is back to her confident self as it’s evident in her behavior. There’s ofcourse still the odd tantrum, but its nothing like those she threw a few months back.
Winter seems to be coming to an end and I’m looking forward to getting out of the house with the kids some more over weekends. We really have been hibernating! I’m thinking drives out to the winelands, soaking up the sun on the beach and trying out some new restaurants (kiddy friendly of course) – this is what I’m longing for at the moment. Some Vitamin D will do us all some good. My hubby absolutely hates Winter, he literally is another person in Summer and I’m looking forward to hooking up with that guy in the Summer lol.
So that’s it really, hirbernation mode is almost over and then I’m sure my mojo will return!
