This past week has been full of changes for Dubz. He is starting at not one, but two pre-schools. He will attend one on Mondays and Thursdays, and another one on Wednesdays and Fridays. And the reason he is attending two schools, is purely selfish on my behalf. You see, the first pre-school is nearby and he will make friends who will be at his proper school next September. This school runs from 9.15am-12.15pm, which allows me to go to do some grocery shopping, go to the gym and shower. But the other pre-school has longer days. So twice a week he will be in school from 9.30am-2.30pm. These longer days will give me time to write and to attend blogging events.
Selfish, I know. I have spent the past couple of weeks feeling guilty. Guilty about putting my needs above my son. But this week, as we have been going through the various inductions and as I have slowly gotten some free time, I have realised that this is the right thing. It might not be the easiest thing. But I know it will work for us. Dubz is three and has gotten so much one-on-one time with me. It will be good for him to be with other children and other adults.
Change does not have to be a bad thing. Me-time is not a bad thing. And sometimes mums need to be a bit selfish.
