A few weeks ago we were living with my godmother in St Margarets. Was lovely to be back in the area where i grew up. As someone who works with the development of young people, I have recently started to worry that I wasn't doing enough with Locki to stimulate his growing personality. Yes we spend copious of time outside and in parks but is he where he should be? How do you know? Every little amazing person is different. So I was really happy to find this amazing place for Locki to learn and play, Gymboree Play & Music St Margarets
with the most positive, fantastic teacher (Elektra - highly recommend her classes!) The environment was safe and fun and the classes had fast, stimulating flow. Eventhough I could only visit a few times, Locki loved it. I, as a mum, became much more confident in what i need to do with him and he had a really great, social experience with the other babies. Gutted that now we have moved back home we are a bit too far away to revisit but if you have the chance to go, I highly recommend it!
It's 3am and my body aches but my brain is firing on all cylinders. This is the 4th time I have been awake tonight. Training for the Olympics I had these occasional sleepless nights - sometimes feeling pressure, other times muscle ache. This insomnia is different - it is a result of the profoundest love of all. And worry for that little bundle of love who wakes all night screaming in pain. I salute all you parents. This is the most brutal (but rewarding) professional of all. I wish I could spend my days lazily staring at you, working out what goes on in your head. Your smile keeps us energised all day but your pain at night is a challenge we are yet to conquer. How do you manage to burn the candle at both ends little man? Mummy and daddy need toothpicks aka Salvador Dali to prop our eyes open whilst working in the day! Soon little one you will have a home. Have your own little room. We will be nomads no longer. For all the adventure of living out of suitcases for 15 months I can't wait to have stability. To wake up in my own bed. To carry locki over the threshold to the walls which will create so many memories and nurture him into a little dude. But first I need to sleep. Please let tonight be the night.... damn those cute little white teeth almost poking through. Damn you for causing my happy little boy so much pain..... #teething #8months #nomads #parenthood #mamahood #mountainmummy #lovelocki #ineedsleep
