Okay okay.. hear me out before you @ me.
Everyone must have a favourite day of the week right? Surely it’s like a thing and it’s not just me. My favourite day is Monday and for a very good reason.
Being a mum of three, two in two different schools (primary and pre school) and one 9 month old, I spend ALOT of time in the car. Whether it’s ferrying various children to and from schools, trips to do food shopping or running various errands that I have to squeeze into so little time, I barely have time to think on a regular day. Monday’s however, that all stops.
Roo gets overly excited about Monday’s. This is because he gets dropped off and picked up from his nana and spence doesn’t have school. Monday’s are my days. Granted they aren’t fully my days but they are the day I get to stop what I usually do and not leave the house. They are my days to refuel ahead of a busy week. Where I can sit down with my other two children and read books or watch films, build towers and play with diggers and trucks. Pay them the attention they do desperately deserve.
Life flys by so quickly sometimes you don’t even realise that your missing these precious moments. My children get all the love they need all the time and I vow to give them the happiest and most incredible childhood I possibly can, but even just rushing around making sure you’re not late for appointments or the school Bell can sometimes take hours of your life away from you within the blink of an eye.
This is why I love Monday’s. Recharge, refuel and rethink for the week ahead. I get to spend those little moments I crave with my children and all from the comfort of my home in my pyjamas. What is there not to love?
What’s your favourite day and why? I would love to know.
