This is how most mornings start for Grace and I. She occupies herself at the kitchen table colouring in while I get our breakfast ready. Then we sit down together, eating our toast and cereal and chatting about our plans for the day ahead before Sophie wakes. I enjoy this quiet one on one time of ours together.
Slowly, we are beginning to have a bit more of a rhythm to ours days and while we aren't in a set routine just yet, I know roughly when Sophie will be due for a feed and when she will be due for a nap and so our days are becoming that little bit easier to organise.
This week it's just been us three girls at home as Paul is away on a fishing trip with some mates. We've been managing well so far and are enjoying simple days at home together. It's hard to explain the concept of time to a two and a half year old though. "Will Daddy be home after my nap?" Grace asked on the morning Paul set off. Tears welled in her eyes as I tried to explain that he would be away for longer than a day, longer than 'tomorrow' even. She's definitely counting down the days until Daddy comes home.
Hope you are all having a great week so far.
