..as now my ‘baby’ is about to start school.
I am filled with emotion; sadness at losing my time with her, delight I had all this time with both my kids, relieved we managed for so long on such a reduced income. I’m not 100% sure what I’m going to do with myself yet but there is something I most definately do need to do. I need to say thank you.
I want to say a really big thank you to everyone who supported my being a stay at home mum journey. It was a brave path considering our finances and many people advised me not to give up work. But many more of you cheered us on. Each and everyone of you know who you are and I appreciate you for so many things. For meals at yours and pre-loved clothes, swimming lesons, advice, lifts, new hair stariaghteners, old magazines, haircuts (never let your hubby cut your hair!) days out, free proof reading, holidays in your house, money, a tent, emotional support, passed on books, writing support, IT services and free babysits, I could go on and on and on. How lucky we ARE to have been so loved and supported.
It is said it takes a village to raise a child. Well it has took a whole host of good frieneds and family to enable me to be a stay at home mum and I value, thank and love each and everyone of you for giving me this gift of precious time.
I know it isn’t for everyone but despite some bleak times (not to do with the kids) these have truly been my favourite years of my life. Thank you for believing in and supporting us.
Jonny., my wondeful husband, thank you most of all for working so hard for us.
Bless you all – you have given me a wondeRful, wonderful 7 1/2 years.
