The card above is what JJ made for my mum for mother’s day.
There are some mother’s day crafts hidden around the house that JJ made at after school care and school. He’s really excited about it. He’s also not been backward in coming forward in telling me how I could improve my parenting. We all need feedback right? If you’ve read my last post I copied out what he’d written to me not knowing then that it was meant to be for mother’s day.
Friday night was my saviour. I got to go out and be an adult. I dropped JJ off at the overnight babysitter’s and came back to my house where my two girlfriends were cooking nachos and a glass of sparkling red was awaiting.
We then went to see a friend’s band and The Kill Devil Hills from Perth. It was the perfect night out for me getting to see live music. I was sitting down for the second band and I ended up getting up to dance. They were great. So great I bought a CD and got the six of them to sign it for me. It’s only a day or so since I got the CD but I’ve already listened to it at least five times. I’m a bit like a kid with the latest Wiggles video.
I said Friday night was my saviour. I must have really needed a night out to let off some steam because despite being a bit tired the next morning I had a fabulous day. JJ was a dream. We chatted about my parenting and about how he responds to that and I think we reached an understanding and a truce!
I felt so good and had so much energy I blogged, twittered (see right hand side of my blog), took photos (to come), cleaned my room and a cleaned out a couple of my drawers, changed my bed’s sheets, did housework, washed and hung out two loads of washing, cooked dinner, washed dishes, mowed the lawn, filled up the big wheelie bin with cuttings, walked the dog and the kid, and hired a couple of DVDs.
I think I must have been in a slump for a while now because I haven’t felt as good for some time.
Welcome to my world as a mother. Happy mother’s day to me and to all the other mother’s out there (especially my own).
