Life at our house does seem to be moving faster now. I’m astonished at how quickly time is passing. In reality I’m pretty sure it’s just a reflection of my own increased busyness but it makes me very aware that I need to enjoy each moment – because nothing stays the same for long. I’ve been experiencing this funny time warp feeling as I’ve re-emerged back into some of my pre-kid world. Many of my colleagues and the families and children I work with are the same – just six years older. I have these regular flashes were I feel like I’ve been in hibernation fast asleep for six years while the world just kept on turning without me.
My little pinks seem to be adjusting well. (Yes they are lucky as they just get to stay at home with Daddy or Granny.) The two biggest concerns they’ve had is seeing my new name tag, (evidently this is of paramount importance when talking of working in the eyes of a six year old) and whether the baby the worker I’m backfilling for was having with turned out to be a boy or a girl. (t’was a girl!). I must say one of my favourite things about being back at work is the way they come running for me when I get home – it’s truly delicious! I honestly thought I’d be one of those teary messy emotional ‘return to workers’ who would take weeks to re-adjust. But no, despite those tears as I drove away for my first day, I really don’t worry to much about them while I’m away and I enjoy being with them so much more when I’m home. It’s been a life lesson learned for me ....... and of cause the extra money coming in is wonderful! Renovations here we come :O)
