“A glass of wine each night improves your ability to negotiate with children.” Unknown.
(NOT SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN BUT ASK ALL THE MUMS YOU KNOW… OLD WIVES TALE? WE THINK NOT!)
Parenting brings you a rollercoaster of extreme joy, frustration, exhaustion, anxiety or, like our house, a little bit of temporary insanity. Whether you’ve been there, are right in the thick of it or yet to venture into parenthood – each of us are treading a unique path.
Yesterday, I took a sneaky night away from home, shared a bottle of wine with a friend and reminisced over the little joys of life BC (before children!). I left the house with a change of clothes and a toothbrush. I took a long bath, listened to my favourite music, ate all of my own dinner while it was hot, enjoyed prolonged silence… ahhh – generally just appreciated the little things I happily sacrifice when I’m with the kids.
