Alone Time

Alone Time

Although we’ve been home for only 2-weeks , our Greek island holiday seems like a distant memory now that I am back at work and we are attempting to get back into a routine.

I’ll always cherish those weeks with you, where each day was ours to do with as we pleased.

No work or nursery to get up for, no schedule to keep, no routine to follow.

We got to spend so much time together while he slept.

We watched movies in bed and cuddled up tight.

We went for long walks, hung out on the beach and swam in the pool.

It’s been so long since we had that much time together, just you and me.

I’ve missed you.

We talked a lot about your favourite books, places we wanted to visit and what food to eat.

As he stirred from slumber, we giggled to ourselves.

Our calm was about to become chaos once more.

We’d soon all be running around the apartment hunting down missing trunks, sunscreen and hats.

He’d probably be hungry, definitely thirsty and would require a bit of love and attention.

We’d had a few quiet hours to ourselves and tomorrow we would have a couple more.

But for now, it was business as usual.

With a reassuring smile and squeeze of your hand, I lent over and quietly whispered in your ear…

“Daddy’s awake”
