For us stay at home mums, when our husbands have time off work it’s very exciting. I love being at home with my children, but it’s even more fun when daddy’s around.
My husband is amazing. He works full time as well as studying a law degree during evenings and weekends. We are coming up to final exam and dissertation time so things are even more busy than usual. It means I need to be extra supportive and good at being a mother and taking care of stuff at home.
Usually I would be so super excited at the prospect of a four day weekend. We would typically plan loads of family stuff and go out and about, as well as having relaxing mornings in our pjs. I love it when we are all together, it feels like such a treat.
This long weekend will be a little different. My husband has to study so it will pretty much be a normal few days for the kids and I. Sunday will be lovely as we are going to spend time with my brother so I’m very much looking forward to that. Every other day, though, we won’t be having much family fun as a foursome.
I feel ok with this, not thrilled, but ok.
When we decided to go for the law degree, we knew that there would be sacrifices. We knew that things would be tough sometimes but we also knew how worth while it would be in the end. It is such a short time in the grand scheme of things and I am really excited for how this will enhance our future. I feel so lucky to have a husband who is ambitious and hard working.
It’s only a few days, right? I live in London, a city full of adventure and excitement.The kids and I will find fun things to do and I will be reminding myself that we are doing all of this for them.
