Fair warning, this blog may be very emotional. This past weekend was the last weekend before I am heading back to work. So, for a fair amount of it, I spent my time hugging my daughter, kissing her, and generally dreading the moment I would be parted from her. I wanted it to be a 'WOW' weekend, but my husband was feeling more mellow and that we should stick close to home. So we did a bit of both.
The rest of the day was really about being a family before we all head off to work or daycare. So, we went to our favourite park, walked around a bit, then lay down a blanket and just sat there as a family. With our little one climbing all over us we remembered that this time a year ago we had first brought her to the park. She was fast asleep then, so little, and we placed her on two blankets, on top of two other blankets, and just watched her. Today, she was walking all over the place, and we couldn't even remember what it was like when she would just sleep all day. She is much more fun now, much older, no little babe, a toddler. It's tough being a mom who needs to work to provide for the loves of her life, when I wish I could spend all day with them instead. It all makes us stronger though, doesn't it...
P.S. This isn't going to be my last post. A couple people suggested that I keep writing this, as a nice outlet for my writing and thoughts. So, I thought I would keep it going, not as frequently as before, but enough to keep interesting. I may have to subtitle it the Autumn Edition or something silly like that. But keep your eyes peeled for the next installment.
