J has been home for six weeks and we are starting to settle in and find our groove. I can honestly say that I love this boy and he is my son.
The first few weeks were mentally tough- 'along the shift from full time work to stay at home Mum, and from having come to terms with not having children and being happy with that, to all of a sudden having an active one year old- well that takes some mental gymnastics. But I've gotten past that and every time I look at him, I smile at how incredibly lucky we are.
Murray has been on school camp this week which has been challenging but also a good way of testing my coping mechanisms!!
