Monday’s are so special to us because it’s a non-working day for Jamain. I feel incredibly blessed to be on maternity leave where I can spend all my time with Theo. It really is an incredible time as I watch him grow, develop and change. So now that Jamain has Monday’s off, it is a dream come true for me to know that he has that extra time to spend with Theo, me and as to a family.
We try and make the most of the time we have together and every Monday really feels like a bonus. We can go out together for walks, go to a class (we really enjoyed rhyme time at the library last week) or relax at home together and play with Theo.
Not only do we get to spend more time as a family, it also means that Jamain and Theo can have quality one on one time and I can have some time for me. It’s so easy to forget how important it is to have time for yourself. I try to keep reminding myself that I need to look after me so I can be my best for Theo.
I would encourage everyone to cherish the time you have together, it’s so special, and to look after yourselves.
