My How they Grow Up

Today I was reminded just how quickly children grow up.  It seems like just yesterday that I was pregnant with our first child and today well look at her in the school production.

I can't believe that is my child who opened the whole show up on stage by herself, who was so scared this time last year that she was unable to stand in front of the school and deliver her speech for the Speech Finals.  This is the child who found it very difficult to stand in front of her class and do anything in fact.  My DH and I thought that her fear could be debilitating and she needed some skills to get her over this phase so we put her into Speech and Drama lessons 3 years ago.  Wow just look at the benefits.  I am so proud of her.

Lifes Little Challenges

Life has been very challenging lately.  Packing our house, moving into temporary accommodation, buying new house, organising finance, sharing a house with others, working....phew the list is ongoing.

Through all of this my time has become increasingly important.  Not that I get a lot of this but the little I get is vital to my sanity.  Today was a typical day of how buy life is.  DH is away for 12 days and nights at work, McKenzie is performing in a school production show in the evening, Andre has hockey practise and ofcourse I have been working.  Lets not forget that Haydens bed needed to be striped because those incontinence nappies leeked through 3 layers of beding so there was a full load of washing and.  I got out of bed at 6.00am and finally sat down at 8.00pm.  I had 30 minutes at home and thankfully Haydens wonderful carer helped me out with him for a little time and my mum went to the school show tonight and bought McKenzie home. 

Phew and that is all in one day.

So heres to my cabin, my bedroom and little space of sanity for the short term (well actually that is another story), my relaxing music.  I must treat myself to this just a little more often.
