Some days in this life seem to go so smoothly. Others make me wish I’d stayed in bed until the sun came up 24 hours later. With a 21-month-old and a 2-month-old at my side, they are days of extremes.
A little while ago, when I was pregnant with Jasmin, I wrote a piece on what my ideal day would look like. Here’s another look at life in this way now that she is here. Take a read, it’s my dream day – versus the reality of 24 hours with Milin and Jasmin.
6.30am – 7am on dream day:
After an uninterrupted night’s sleep, I wake gradually to the sound of Milin playing happily in his cot. We go through our routine of getting dressed and brushing our teeth before he eats all his porridge while I read him some books. Once Milin is fed, changed, and entertaining himself with his Lego, Jasmin wakes for a feed. She has been asleep since 10pm, and greets me with a gummy smile.
