I don’t want to do it…but I have no choice.
It is time to say goodbye to you.
Yes you do make some random appearances but I will miss your regular visits.
You have been my faithful friend on a daily basis, giving me breaks from the destructive whirlwind that is my toddler!
You made an appearance and I could get on with the housework in peace, or simply put my feet up.
I have noticed you slipping away slowly the last few months but I tried to pretend it wasn’t happening.
I did my best to make you stay.
But it was a losing battle.
I have to realise it is time to let you go.
Since your leaving, my house literally looks like a bombsite until she has gone to bed. Toys everywhere, books ripped and now even the scribbling on the wall has started. That I must put a stop to.
I live for bedtime, as my toddler has limitless energy and instead of a nap just has to sit for a short while to effectively recharge her batteries. Then it is back to wreaking havoc and doing crazy things.
This child has no fear.
If she is out in the garden the cat comes inside and hides in my room, and the rabbit runs back into his hutch!
We all need a break!
Why did you leave so soon!?
