Gone are those days when I would clean the house and still be like I did not clean because Abigail is all over the house, toys are everywhere so are the pots, Yes the pots. She likes to remove stuff from the fridge we fight almost every day about that and is so unfortunate that my fridge can not be locked and that makes it easy for her to just open and grab whatever she wants.
September 13th was her first day at pre-school, I was nervous but happy that she is now starting this journey. All I want for her is to get used to it. When I went to drop her off I was expecting her to cry, she really surprised me that she did not cry but one thing that I am certain of is that she was curious about the environment. Later when I went to fetch her I thought she was gonna smile with me, but that was not it, she cried.
Now that I spend most of my time alone during the day, my focus is on my YouTube channel and my blog though I took a month without posting now I am back. After 13 months of being with Abigail, I decided to take myself out, I really needed a solo date and I am glad that I did just that although my solo date turned into a double date.
Having some time alone is very vital especially when you are a mom. I spend 9 hours alone during the week, which is very good for me because I can now go out, and attend to my personal errands, unlike when I would do that with Abigail around. Not that I am complaining but it’s very tiring. Like I told you that I never wanted a nanny to look after my baby, so wherever I was Abigail was around.
As much as I get enough time to myself, my morning routine has changed, I wake up at 6am, pack Abigail’s school bag, and at 6:30am I wake her up, feed her and bath her. Then at 7:30am I leave the house to drop her off. Her school is a 3 to 5 minutes walk from the house so there is no need for me to drive her to school unless is raining.
I missed having time to myself and do my errands on my own time. I am grateful that Abigail’s father and I took the decision to take her to school, though he wanted us to enroll her next year, it was a no-no situation for me because I was the one who was getting drained of being with Abigail the whole day.
