It’s been a month since we said farewell to the nanny and I took over the reins of full-time motherhood once again. In this time I have realised the following;
I didn’t pay the nanny nearly enough.
Thinking of creative and nutritious meals (and then cooking them) is quite a challenge.
Three children produce a remarkable amount of laundry.
No matter how often I tidy the play room, it is always, always messy.
Changing the sheets on a cabin bed is a pain in the neck.
Getting three children out of the house for 8.15 involves a significant amount of shouting and the occasional swear word.
The children are exhausting.
The children are amazing.
The children are clever, funny and interesting, and now I don’t have to miss out on a single second of it.
The children are mine again.
