I've been single-parenting on weekdays for 5 weeks now. This is my 6th week. James is HOME on Thursday 5th April. I CAN'T wait. I think it might be strange having him here everyday again. I'm really settling into a routine being on my own with the kids and he is going to come home and spoil it all. Ha!
My bedtime has become 9.30pm. It means I get an extra hour and a half of sleep (Nate wakes for a feed at 11.00pm) and I find that I am SUPER tired if I don't get that extra time. Our day starts at 7am, so going to bed at 9.30pm means I get about 8 hours sleep! I can get both boys asleep in their rooms for 7.30pm now! I'm a professional.... Haha!
I had to take both the boys for their jabs last week. Ollie had his pre-school boosters (he won't need anymore until he is in secondary school) and Nate was getting his 8 week jabs. My mum came with me for emotional support!!! It went ok though.
I am LEAVING the boys for 3 nights on Friday! I'm going to spend the weekend in London with James. We've never ever been away together for a mini-break. Not once since Ollie was born. I'm really looking forward to it being just us.... full nights sleep, lie-ins, fancy food, cocktails, The Hunger Games, London Aquarium.... oh and a full body massage at the spa! I'm nervous to leave the boys but am looking forward to alone time with James.
