My oven is still broken, I’m getting antsy now. I need to bake! Ah well, at least my starter is getting super active with all this feeding.
I’ve been reflecting back on the last year of living in this house over the past few days. What a year it has been, full of ups and downs – much like a rollercoaster. However you can either scream when you hit the bumps or hold your hands up and enjoy the ride!
I don’t want to come across as a militant single parent. Yes it’s tough at times but parenting is. Whilst I don’t love being the only adult in the house, I am extremely proud of how my little family are turning out, all of us are growing, changing, adapting. I love how we are very similar yet so very different. These differences are what make us special. We should embrace them, allow them to develop.
I hope I can bring a sense of belonging yet individuality to my children. I want them to know that it is ok to be different. I hope I’ve shown them how to respect the opinions and beliefs of others when they differ to theirs.
Being a parent is tough, fun, rewarding, exhausting, loving and hard work. It’s the best job in the world and I feel very privileged to have been given this chance.
