A New Series: The Rhythm Of Our Days
My days looked very different back when I worked full-time. Mornings were spent sleeping in as late as I could before hurriedly scoffing down breakfast and leaving for work in a flurry. Lunch breaks were spent supervising children in the playground or sitting in the staff room preparing lessons. Come the afternoons, I would run errands and stop for groceries on the journey home, often playing the 'what will we have for dinner?' game come five thirty.
When Grace came along several years later, my days changed dramatically. I had earlier starts which began with breastfeeding my bub in bed or on the couch. Breakfast was a slow affair, on warmer days enjoyed outdoors together on our patio. My lunch break became my 'me time' and whilst early evening was probably the most chaotic time of our day, thanks to my new habit of menu planning, it was undoubtedly more organised.
Over the years and through the seasons, each phase has come and gone and the rhythm of our days has adapted slightly. As the weeks slip by and my girls grow at a rate much quicker than I would like, I find myself eager to remember and record how our daily life looks at each stage in a way that can be reminisced upon down the track. As a result, over the coming months, I've decided to start a new series here called 'The Rhythm Of Our Days', documenting how certain parts of the week typically look here in our little family.
Time feels so fleeting lately and consequently, I no longer view insignificant daily happenings as mundane and repetitive but instead, see them as precious moments...
I look forward to sharing a little bit of that 'every day' magic here in this space of mine...
