Ok so I’m a bit melodramatic right? In my defence, it’s a well-known fact that things appear a hell of a lot scarier in the silence and darkness of the middle of the night. It’s also a well-known fact that I can be a bit of a drama queen but I’d rather side step that one.
Things that didn’t happen yesterday: Boo didn’t cry. Not even once. Boo didn’t choke. Boo didn’t want her daddy and not me. Boo didn’t hurt herself. The house wasn’t falling down by the evening. Things that did happen yesterday: Lots of smiles and laughs. Lots of playtime and fun. Sleepy snuggles and story books. I managed to have a shower, brush my hair AND do my makeup. We had a lovely walk in the 20 minutes of sunshine in between the storms. Most importantly, we were both happy. I coped. I feel better than I have felt in months just knowing that I have the ability and the space to be a mummy.
