Just sitting and watching this fireplace whereas Freyja sat subsequent to/on me was so pretty and calming.

She was residence visiting her household, which is superior, however these of you which might be mother and father know the way laborious it may be to determine/line up again up care (particularly when it’s simply half time care)… the previous few weeks have been loads of piecing collectively varied sitters + my mother as soon as a type of sitters bailed final minute (thanks mother!), working within the evenings so much to make up for lack of labor time throughout the day, and many others. It might be good to be again into our regular routine with 2 constant full days per week of childcare!
