Today- The Day I was Pining

Today was one of those days where I was pining for time with my son. I think because on the weekend we were so busy with organising and building our shed, I didnt get to spend much good, quality time with him. And I miss him so much today.

Sparked by IG, I saw photos of other mums tending to appointments, school runs, shopping dates and hanging with their babies and I was really feeling sorry for myself.

As some of you may know, Ive worked full time since Little Man was 7mths old and normally it doesnt bother me too much. I mean, of course Id love to be at home with him but I do like my work and I know hes having a great time hanging with Daddy, my mum or his mates at child care. And I especially love the moment when we get reunited again at the end of the day.

Today I just wanted to be 'Homemaker Mummy'. Waking up to his smiley face, getting his milk and having those morning snuggles. Feeding him brekky whilst I enjoy my morning coffee. Chinking our drinks when he cheekily says 'Cheers'! Letting him loose outside, whilst co-ordinating hanging out a load/s of washing, going for a walk to the playground, reading books, pottering around whilst he naps, getting dinner ready and doing some baking.

Im not trying to make it sound being a SAHM is the easiest gig around. I know I probably have it easy some days being at work but somedays you just wish more than others, to be at home with your kids. My ultimate work/life balance would be a PT worker then I could kinda have my cake and eat it too :)

Anyway, back to the grind again tomorrow. Maybe time to book some more holidays!!


  1. I think you are such an awesome mama for making the sacrifices you do to create the family life you have - I know it must be so hard, and I think this makes what you're doing even more admirable. Hope you find some time to catch up on your 'Mummy and me' time... Maybe you might wake up feeling poorly tomorrow? ;) xx

  2. Aww Thanks Buffster! And you on the other hand, are the awesome SAHM kid wrangler extroadinaire!
