The one week in the year when I finally have a driving test, when its only the 10th day at nursery for 1yo LO and the week when British Gas is going to take out my carpets and floor boards and leave us without a house from 8am-5pm. And he has taken off for work in India..miles away for the entire week. He had a choice of not going but decided he really wanted to go for this meeting.
My needs come last it seems. I am going to be anxious about LO. Its going to be hard managing the LO for the whole day when we need to be out. And god knows what the house will look like on our return.
LO's nursery is a 1.15hr bus ride one way for me. So I need to drop him , get back , give test, get back pick him up and get home and clear out furniture from one part of the house.
Friends all have various age Los all under 2. Have little family here, have one aunt who is on holiday this week. neighbours have inlaws around for a month!! He knew all this when he left. Sound stubborn don't I
Yes..I guess nursery is hard for me too. Never thought I would be so sad, anxious, hyper and just plain emotional about it. Leaving him and watching him cry in distress is hard. So the settling in is happening simultaneously and I am finding that surprisingly hard! Lovely nursery but just an overwhelming experience.
Ah cut him a bit of slack, i know it's an awful situation, but I get these "optional trips" in work, that aren't really optional at all, and it looks bad if you don't keenly offer.
When you come out of the week you'll feel strong and proud that you have overcome the issues. When my husband was in the army i had to cope with all these sorts of things and they made me a much stronger person.
