This year, as things get busier for me I have to remind myself to cherish those two days at home with Hugo and to be more mindful of his needs. I find I get swept up in lists and chores or doing work stuff. Hugo gets bored, gets whiney and then I get grumpy.
To get the balance right, I've decided that one day a week is just for Hugo. A Hugo and me day. We might go to a cafe ( my favourite ahem, not his) the park, the bike track, a hike. Anything really, so long as it's us time.
