I love my days off with Ava I really do and I look forward to them every week. Then I get to them and find myself wondering what to do. I’m not sure why really but we end up spending those days just us two.
If I think about it a lot of my friends have older kids and meeting up for a coffee was possible when she was a baby and is now totally impossible for any longer than it takes her to eat a snack. In other words not for long before I end up having to chase after her and ignore my friends.
We’ve lived in 3 different villages since having her and the toddler group in the newest one falls on a day I work. I have NO local friends as the boys still go to School in the first village I haven’t had the chance to meet anyone.
It does get lonely sometimes and I worry about her having friends. We go to a music group one of the days I’m off and the mums and toddlers are lovely but I haven’t made any friendships that continue outside of the group.
So when it comes to my days with Ava we do things together. Last week I took her to a local country park with her SmarTrike which she just loves. We had such a lovely time together and it made me realise that it’s ok to be spending all this time just me and her. Before I know it she will be at school and I will desperately miss just being able to go and do things, spending that quality time together.
I made a little vlog of our trip. If you haven’t already I would love it if you subscribed to my Youtube Chanel. I’m planning on having lots more content going on there!
