Radio silence

I haven’t written much lately, probably because all is well. Not much is happening. We are creating a new routine, my son is going to preschool, both my son and daughter do gymnastics (because it was the only class not full that would allow them both to do something at the same time), things are good.

I get up in the morning at an ungodly hour, breastfeed my not-really-a-baby-anymore, then the boys wake up, I have a quick shower, we all have breakfast together and I go to work. When I come home, I switch clothes to something I don’t mind getting dirty and play outside with the kids until dinner. Sometimes I even get to chat with other parents. After dinner we put the kids to bed, do dishes, laundry, tidy up the house, and by then it’s usually 9, so we sit down for a few minutes to have a snack and off to bed we go.

It is busy, but happy. My daughter is becoming a real little person and is sweet and funny. My son is challenging, but mostly with us – with others he’s usually a very good boy. I suspect he’s just going through an age-appropriate phase of testing us – a very long phase. I don’t have much time to myself, but I love my work, which is rewarding. We have just reconnected with two couples of friends and are now finding it hard to schedule everyone in, which is very new and not that unpleasant.

So basically, we’re surfing a good wave these days. Broke, exhausted, but mostly happy. And when I’m too tempted to whine, I count my blessings and try to shut up.
