After a two-hour nap, I sit outside in the sunshine, sipping on some wine, listening to my daughter’s joyous shrieks. Her brother is seeing his dad (Useless Boyfriend) and we are staying with some friends in England.
I cannot remember the last time I felt this relaxed, happy, or hungry – probably not this side of 2011…
My daughter and I used to be together most of the time, until she turned 13 months and our worlds got turned upside down. Then I got too busy sinking, she started spending every other weekend at her dad’s in January, and I started work in March.
I had not realised how much I had felt robbed of my baby.
I watch her babble and reverse a tricycle in a very skilled spot of parallel parking. She has changed so much in the last six months, and we have a lot of catching-up to do.
