In once sense, this month has just flown by. It doesn’t feel that long ago that I was sitting here writing February’s Me and Mine post, and now it’s practically April. The winter to spring transition just seemed to happen overnight, and now, lighter, warmer days are upon us.
In another sense, this month has just dragged. With some of the worst sleep since I became a mother of two, and a long dose of solo-parenting added into the mix, I have felt exhaustion almost every day this month. March has been unproductive days and 8.30pm bedtimes (for me). My head has been in a fog, and I’m still waiting for it to lift, but I’m hoping the spring sunshine will help with my energy levels and my mood in general.
Here’s a phone photo that I took on the day that Sam left for his work trip. Arlo had
forced encouraged everyone to play one of his favourite games – he lines up the chairs and we pretend to be on a train: today’s route was Norwood junction via Tanzania.
You never see Arlo so animated than when he’s in the throes of imaginary play, especially if it involves travel. He loves ‘playing pretend’. It really is one of the things that defines him as a three year old, and the rest of us are happy to be along for the ride.
As per usual, I am sending you on to another of the bloggers hosting Me and Mine. This month it’s Katie, who I am sure most of you know already, but just in case you haven’t discovered Katie’s blog yet, and you’re in the mood for lovely photography and great writing on the joys of parenthood, hop on over to Mummy Daddy Me and you’ll be in for a treat.
