I had to write it down immediately, it's so nice to be appreciated by a five year old! I've been reminded this week how much they need me around and how little they still are. I'm grateful that I can be a stay at home mum, even now that they're both at school.
Being at home means that I have time to bake bread, I can do regular parent help (I get to know the boys' classmates), I can be there for school events and pick them up each afternoon. It also means B can work his long hours without the stress of finding a babysitter for the boys. I never get bored at home but sometimes a little lonely if I don't make an effort to get out. Having no extended family nearby is hard going, I imagine having a Nana or Aunty to call on would be amazing. There are things I could find to grizzle about but really why bother? Life is what you make it after all and ours is pretty sweet.
What are you grateful for today?
Leave me a comment, I'd love to know. x
