Make time for rest!

Jun 21, 2022

4 months of having Oliver and I just love our precious time together so much. He’s at a wonderful stage of starting to roll and showing so much curiosity in the world around him. I feel so incredibly happy but gosh in all honesty I don’t think I’ve ever felt so exhausted!

 

From the broken nights sleep with the 4 month sleep regression and two tiny troublesome teeth coming through (so soon!) it can be tough and there are days when my brain can feel a little foggy. I found myself putting the washing in the fridge yesterday!?

 

Lately I’ve been finding that I’ve been using every possible nap time as an opportunity to ‘get things done’. From packaging orders to running around the house with the duster. I’ve realised that I’ve forgotten the importance of rest for me.

 

It’s hard isn’t it when you want to be productive and are so used to feeling organised and efficient. Yet I know that for me to be the best for Oliver (and the rest of my family (🧔‍♂️🐱🐱) I need to apply my own oxygen mask first.  I actually have a new version of being productive… it involves sat with a book and a cup of tea! Hopefully be doing this more I will have more to give back.

 

If you can relate to how I feel take this as your little reminder too. Pop the kettle on and put your feet up for a little while 💛
