Can you hear it?  It's silience.  And it's at my house!!
I dont get a lot of time to myself.  I had Lilli just before Corey went to Kindergarten and then I went back to work part-time when she was 10 months old.  So the only days I got to myself were actually spent working for someone else.

But since being made redundant in October 09, I still put Lilli into pre-school 2 days per week.  Sometimes I feel guilty, sometimes I don't.  She has always been my clingy baby so learning to play with other kids and respect other adults is a good thing for her. Right?

Anyway I took her to pre-school today and Corey is at his dad's for a couple of nights and I feel a little bad but I am really enjoying the silence. No arguing kids. No making snacks and lunches that won't be eaten, no picking up after anyone and no ABC Kids on too loud. Well not till 3pm!

And now I miss her and wonder if she is having rest time.  And I wonder if Corey is cold, I didn't pack him a jumper or warm pj's.

Ahhh motherhood, it makes sure you feel guitly about enjoying the quiet moments. 
You literally feel guilty for feeling guilty which in turn makes you feel guilty again!!
And us mummys wouldn't have it any other way.

Here's Princess Lilli back in September last year.

Have a happy day.

  1. Don't you just love the guilt trips?

    Love the shot of Lilli, it's so rustic and funky at the same time.

    hope you're having a great day/night


  2. Hope you enjoyed your quiet day.

    I like that shot - such contrasts of colour, texture and even mood.

    My 2nd youngest goes to Kindergarten this year, and my youngest will be at pre-school 2 days per week. I am wondering what I will do with those 2 'free' days? The first 'free' days for nearly 15 years.

  3. You must get over the guilt. :)
    This is the time for you...Mom's need time as well. The kids will survive.
    Great photo of your sweetie!!
