Mia had her first school holiday last week. Unfortunately, she caught a cold, and her holiday was spent quietly at home, with two visits to the doctor, and not all the outings to movies, dairy farm, ice-cream etc that I had planned!
It was still a special week, with lots of snuggles and cuddles watching movies on the couch. Mia enjoyed dressing up like a pirate the one day. ;-) She made her own sandwiches - sort of, hehe. We visited my dad a couple of times during the week, and popped in at my grandfather on the weekend.
Luckily she didn't seem to feel physically sick, just a whole lot of sinus-type post nasal drip going on. I've kept her home from school for two days now, but I feel she's ready to go back tomorrow. She's getting quite bored at home! I've enjoyed the extra two days to sleep-in a bit though, must admit. ;-)
Following on from my post a while ago about Mia's disobedience and defiance - I think that was just an exceptionally bad week, as since then it hasn't ever been quite as bad for me to handle. Still a few occasions that she tries to push the limits, but I think with both Wyn and I being more firm with her so that she understands what we say goes, it has been easier.
I'm so aware of how little time is left for me to give all my time to Mia, but trying hard to shift my mind-set, it's not mourning her loss of being an only child, it's celebrating the joy of getting a sibling! We're focussing on that. :-)
