Tried hard to focus all my attention on my children today. It’s the school holidays. Most of the day was just with my youngest son, as the older one was at a vacation care camp for the day.
I forced myself to get outside and do some gardening with my son. We also lay down on the sun loungers and just chatted together. We did some craft stuff and read some books. All things he loves to do.
Later when we picked up my older son, we went and had some dinner out, which was a school holidays treat for them. Chatted with my older son about the fun activities he did today, which he really enjoyed.
I pretty much got through today totally numb inside …. whilst faking happiness on the outside, for my children.
My youngest son, who is 6 years old, loves writing and wrote these for me today, which is so very sweet. He is such a loving little boy.
