A Tiring Week

This week has been a tough one, namely because BP has been away and doesn't get back until tomorrow evening. It has been so strange not having him around the house being grumpy and stomping around when he can't get his own way.

The funny thing is that I never realised what BP does for me without really noticing, until this week. It is Thursday morning and it's a beautiful day but all I want to do is crawl into bed and sleep. I am truly worn out. Keeping LP busy before and after school every day has been a tough job and I'm about ready to drop. Luckily this afternoon I have a little break while he plays with friends and I have a coffee with the other mums.

I have spent the majority of the week sorting out lego and building things with LP. We have built Mixels and are currently in the process of building a plane. A big plane, with seats and ladders and everything. It even has this tiny little drinks cart! Anyway, LP has requireI'd my attention all the time he's been at home and it's quite draining. Not that I don't love spending time with him but I feel like I've been smiling and laughing and using energy 24/7 since BP left.

My two boys love spending time together (some of the time!) and entertaining one another. They come up with games to play, sit together while playing on iPads or invent new secret handshakes. They have that sibling love-hate relationship and this week I've seen just how useful that is to me. Yes they drive me mad when they're at each other's throats but when they get on they can be left for hours on end while I cook dinner or even sit in front of the computer for a while.

I have missed BP so much this week and know that times like this will come around more often as he grows up. I know that I'm going to have to get used to him being away or being off on his own. I can see that coming and accept it. The thing I'm going to find hardest about it all is the fact that I will become the replacement entertainment for LP.

I think lots of coffee and/or red bull will be in order...
