#R2BC Reasons to be Cheerful 1, 2, 3 - Week 4

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

I am sure that just appreciating the good things helps my optimism. It's only my third post for #R2BC and the year continues to be good. I have no doubt that there will be challenges around the corner, but for now, life is good:

1. I am cheerful because I am retaining some semblance of a work/ life balance. I have spent quality time with the children this week despite being away with work. From birthday parties to soft play, it is good to be out and about as a family.

2. The boys are becoming tots. Definitely not toddling, or even cruising, they 'front crawl'. The boys personalities are coming through now, and they are revealing their differences to us. Tom is the little adventurer, the one to go where neither of them has been before- frequently to be found 'swimming' across the kitchen floor. Seb is the chatterbox, why be quiet when you can chatter? Both are now clapping and waving 'on demand'. The time is passing so fast but I am appreciating it so much.

3. The housework is done! Ok, an odd reason to be cheerful, but the last few weekends have been manic with birthdays, family and friends, and we have not been in the house so much. I knew it was getting bad when I got home last Sunday and the OH had resorted to getting the hoover out whilst the house was empty. Today, the house has been cleaned, I would like to say the laundry was done- but as soon as the basket is emptied it is filled. But the clothes are in wardrobes, the washing machine is droning on, and we are on top of things.

  1. Your babies are gorgeous :) And I'm totally with you on the housework. I hate doing it, but it's worse when it hasn't been done, the place is a tip and you know you have to tackle it - hopefully you can enjoy the rest of the weekend now x

    1. Thank you! x House work is probably the most put off chore, but the most rewarding in terms of being able to see the results of your effort.

  2. I find it amazing how early on they start to show their differences. I find that once I pinpoint which twin is which, they then swap personalities! Mich x

    1. Completely with you! I think I have it sussed- Tom likes to explore at ground level, Seb likes to see what's above him. And of course, no sooner than I've said it, they'll do the complete opposite! x
