This weekend has been kind of amazing.
It’s the first time since February that I’ve had almost an entire weekend to myself. I got a massage, I had space to write and create, I even ran an event through Propelle.
It’s also the first time that I had this space and didn’t feel guilty about it.
Instead, it felt important. Important for The Babe to spend time bonding with her daddy and having fun. And important for me to take time for myself, nurturing my creative side and being pampered.
When I did get to spend with The Babe, it was filled with intense snuggles and a whole lot of fun. It was also filled with a sweetness that took my breath away and made me say, “that kid is seriously amazing” on more than one occasion.
After months of feeling angry and irritable all the time, it is such a relief and an absolute blessing to feel this level of contentment and happiness with my life.
At least for the time being.
Because let’s be honest, life with a toddler is one big roller coaster ride of emotions. Up, down, and upside down.
