Thanks for sharing and understanding. I get so easily frustrated at being pushed and pulled in every direction that having some freedom this year has really amplified how much I need 'me' time and made me less patient when I do have an entire day with DS. Each day I vow to be more patient and a better more carefree mum, but each day I struggle to enjoy that and just can't wait for him to go to bed at night!
I do have fun with DS, but I also often find it tedious as I have so many other things that need doing. One thing I am grateful for though is how close I am with DS. We're like an old married couple, he is a great kid. I'm the one who needs to learn more patience and allow him to do things in his own time a bit more rather than boom at him to 'do it now please' all the time. Sometimes I think he is more grown up than me.
