Some days I will wish the day away. That sounds dreadful, but when the kids are making endless noise, mess and chaos and I haven’t started dinner knowing I still have a thousand and one jobs to do I just wish it was bedtime.
And then when they’re asleep I often wish they’d wake up. Like tonight. Seeing them in their little beds (or cot for the boy child) I just want to scoop them up and snuggle. I have done this. But tonight I decided to opt for their smell where I spend ages sniffing them or their blankets to feel close. Is that weird?
