‘That’ Monday…

25 02 2013

I found myself gazing at the height chart in JJ’s room at the weekend, looking at the marks over the months.

JJ was hungrily slurping away at some milk when something struck me.

No, not JJ this time.

It’s only two weeks now until Wifey goes back to work.

It’s symbolic because it means our little baby will be one year old.

And I will have to start cooking during the week again.

I can only begin to imagine how emotional the weekend leading to ‘that’ Monday morning will be.

JJ’s birthday.

Mother’s Day.

Wifey goes to work.

I drop JJ off with the child-minder for the first time.

Then we both embark on probably one of the slowest days of our lives, wishing away the hours until we both dash home to cuddle our little man.

It won’t be too long until I’m feeding him again to see a new mark on the height chart.

“1 year.”

Where does the time go?

The thought of going back to work and speding time with a child-minder sent them both into a trance.

Hope he settles well into the new routine. It’s hard at first, but gets easier. Good luck.

Thanks – it’s funny how easy it is to forget that countless people before you have done it!

i have a son, and he’s almost 5 months old. you seem so dedicated to your little one. i guess their growing up is always going to seem fast-paced for us, even if they’re not little anymore.

It’s incredibly fast – someone mentioned to me today it won’t be long until he asks for my car keys. *gulp*
