So, it’s 11:40pm as I write this. Clearly, I’M still up.
But, what makes the difference is I have had alone time since 10pm. This hasn’t happened in a LONG TIME.
For the first time in Forever… wait, I sound like a Disney movie. Start again.
For the first time in a LONG TIME, I managed to put baby girl down earlier than usual, since she missed her nap today, went to bed LATE last night, and also spent the previous night restless and unwell since she was complaining of a sore throat.
She went to bed with chills last night, she had two doses of medication during the day to thwart that and her sore throat off, and on top of all of that, being so unwell, she ate very little.
All in all, after her warm bath, she was tired. She was ready for bed.
So my reasons for being free don’t come from the best circumstance. But, now with her sound asleep (fingers crossed), I have been doing my thing – drinking camomile, writing lists, messaging sis, journal writing, and googling, and I haven’t even finished yet.
Just a bit more. A bit more of ‘me time.’ And then I too, will have an early night.
12am instead of 1am. It’s a Mum’s life.
