It’s going to suck not having him in a home environment and the guilt at creche drop off is going to sting but I’ll get over it. The sting of being the fat mum at the park when he’s older will hurt more. Plus he’ll have “B” to keep him company and when I’m sweating it out and worrying about him I know I wont be alone as my friend is in the same boat. Mum took plenty of photos while we were out which I thought was nice and gave “B’s Mum” a bit of comfort.
I feel very fortunate that I’ve met some wonderful people and those very same people are becoming very dear friends. It makes me very happy. What also makes me happy is seeing my son happy, playing with his own little friends.
I’ve been going to the gym in the mornings with a friend and leaving Aidan at home with my Mum whilst she’s visiting but eventually he’ll be going into the gym’s Creche for an hour. I’m not looking forward to it but I know it’s the best for everyone involved and it’s only for an hour. Today Mum looked after “B” my friends son as well. I’m not sure who had more fun, the babies or Mum.
“B” is such a sweet boy and is only 20 days older than Aidan. They see each other every Monday at Mothers Group but now they’ll see each other even more at Creche. They play so well together, even when they’re not gentle they still laugh. Aidan’s a bit of a rough nut.
