The holiday is over

Today was one of those cold, wet, windy, blustery days. I woke up this morning to the sound of the howling wind and the rain pattering on our roof. At that moment I wished I could snuggle back under the covers and go right back to sleep. But indulgences like that are no more for me… especially when living with a early and punctual riser in the nursery.

True to form, right on the dot we heard Nathan stirring and babbling in his room. Today was also a work-in-office-day for me, so no dilly-dallying – lots to do to get ready and drop Nathan off at daycare before heading off to work.

I felt the weight of the day start to press down even though it’s barely begun. I suppose it was mainly due to the somewhat empty feeling in the house since my parents left back for KK last night. It really felt like I was on holiday while they were here even though technically I was still running on a normal work schedule. How nice it is for folks who have parents or in-laws that live close-by.

Some parting shots of highlights from the remaining week of my parents’ visit…

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
