Sundays used to be for ...

Reading my book.

Spending hours online.

Having an afternoon nap.

Watching a movie on TV.

This was what my Sundays were filled with until a couple of weeks ago. Richard used to be Aaron's primary playmate so they can spend some time together and I can spend some time with me.

Over the past few weeks, Aaron has been increasingly clingy, to me. Its not good enough if somebody else reads to him, or feeds him his meals, or plays with the Legos. Everything is "Mama do", "Mama sit", "Mama here" or something like that. In a way it makes me happy to feel this 'wanted' but I'm looking forward to the day he outgrows this phase.

So far, I haven't ignored him and left Richard to work it out. I still believe that if I can afford to give him the time and attention, I will eventually be repaid with an independent little boy who will play on his own, secure in the knowledge that I'm always around somewhere.

Nothing much else to write about today because I keep getting interrupted. I might as well just go play!

It sounds like Aaron is using your time up!

Sunday used to be my quiet time, too. But then I passed the age of two, and everything changed... Good Luck!
