This weekend was lovely. It was busy busy busy on Saturday morning….getting cars serviced, library stops, shopping and all the admin of our lives. But it was fine. We were together.
Hubby and I had our meeting with the educational psychologist this morning. The relief I feel is so good. She said to us that she has not spoken to the teacher as she prefers to work without preconceived notions. (I feel better). She asked us questions about Honeybear and the type of child that he is and all the little things to get to know our little boy from our point of view.
It has been a while…but that seems the norm these days. I have been in the new job almost a whole month and I think it is going fine. The office is way way way more relaxed than the previous office. I have had two deadlines in the time I have been there, and even with work under pressure, it was still relaxed. Deadlines must be met, but neither are they the end of the world.
I still gets loads of calls from the old office and after the end of March, I am going to have to cut them loose. My friends from there are waiting for a dinner date so we can all catch up.
The new office also gave us all Monday off…had nothing to do with leave. I think getting into the relationships may take a while, because everyone in that office has worked there forever. I think that is a good sign, that people stay there. The old office had a very high staff turnover.
Hubby has had some compliments about the way he is managing his new position. I think it makes him feel relaxed knowing that he is making a difficult position work.
Honeybear and I spent some good quality time together these last four days. I think we both needed it. I have been working so hard on my private work. I try to work only when he is asleep, but it is not always possible. I also need to spend time with Hubby.
Things with Hubby is another post. I love him so much, and he is one of the most caring souls, and I am so lucky to have him choose me.
It is so busy at work I feel like I have been there forever. However, I am in my element and so far it is going well.
Honeybear, Hubby and I had a most relaxing weekend. We just became couch potatoes and spent time with each other. We really needed this weekend to be together and just to catch up with each other. Hubby is very busy at work too and we both realise that we have to make extra effort as a family.
The weekend cooking has worked really well last week and this week we have ready made meals waiting again. It is really great that instead of cooking, Honeybear and I have time to sit outside and play on the sand and jungle gym. We can build Lego cities and be with each other. Honeybear has been the perfect angel this evening. I can see a child who is happy that his mother is with him.
This afternoon I was feeling proud of myself. We have a talking walking speaking human being whom we are doing pretty well raising. I know he has tantrums, but he knows he is loved and is such a loving child in return. Hugs and kisses and the sweetest little smiles. It just warms my heart.
Hubby was so happy to wake this morning cuddled tight to this little body.
I think there is something about the love of a child that just melts me down from the perfectly organised ice woman most other people know me as.
