How to find a happy medium? This is my blog. It should be what I want it to be. Tales of motherhood and the trials that it brings. Stuff about scrapbooking, layouts, projects. Those that are pretty good, those that fall below par and those that are somewhere in between.
It's all about balance.
And in response to Stephanie, here's what's been in my heart this last week.
DS has started full-time school. He's only 4 years and 8 months old. How will he manage? How will I?

But you know what? I am now more than certain that we chose the right school for DS. The Headteacher is at the gate every morning and greets each and every child by name. Mrs H is so motherly to her charges that I'm sure they are all in love with her. Example: 06.37 this morning. DS comes into our bedroom and the first words out of his mouth are, "Can I go to school and see Mrs H?"
DS is proud that he looks so smart, that he has a school bag, he knows that I will always be there to collect him at the end of the school day. The transition for him appears to have been smoother than for me. But my heart is glad. He's in the right place, a place where differences are encouraged and not stifled, a place where respect is shown for each other and the surrounding environment, a place where DS is happy to go and reluctant to leave.
We can't ask more than that.
