I can already feel a change in the air! 2014 is going to be an exciting year, full of great opportunities and new horizons. I have spent nearly five long years putting myself on hold, and that of course is as it should be with young children. But now I’m feeling optimistic, hopeful and excited that things are finally changing for me and the girls.
The first major difference this year is their growing independence. I am sat here writing this while they are on a play date; I won’t see them till 6pm this evening… Yesterday after school, they sat in Monkeys room playing with Barbie dolls for over an hour. I cleaned up from dinner, packed up their lunches for the next day, then… SAT DOWN, downstairs, on my own, on the sofa, AND watched the news!
