Over the last few months, life has started to become easier here in the Softthistle household.
Max is sleeping through, and is able to use his visuals to request things, meaning he’s a happy, calm little guy who’s coping really well with life once more.
Zack is able to *play* with his little brother finally, and is really coming into his own these days. Wanting to be more independent, reading Proper Books and enjoying school as well as now starting to actively want to do chores around the house.
As for me?
I can breathe again.
With the end of the sleepless nights (mostly!) has come the emergence of *me* again.
Something I hadn’t really been in a while.
I’m going to bed before midnight, and not getting woken until around 7am.
I’m drinking mostly water and am feeling the benefits.
Turns out that drinking all that coke was giving me headaches, and making me plunge into a sugar-coma every afternoon.
I have this thing called energy again.
Oh how I missed that feeling!
I’m able to get up in the mornings happily rather than being desperate to stay in bed just that bit longer.
My home is becoming tidier on a regular basis again, instead of just when I had the energy to clean.
I’m enjoying my evenings to myself again, instead of asking friends to come over to keep me company. (she says while sat opposite her girl @jenxon with Oprah on in the background)
I have the energy to play with the kids and go out and I’ve even started to pick up my big girls camera again.
This is definitely a time for new beginnings, and we are making the most of it!
