But it's been amazing, this journey that i've done, being a full time mother for quite some time now and also going from one child to two in a short amount of time.
Suddenly Alexis is not a little baby, but a young little boy with feelings, a stubborn will and his own fascinating personality. It's so remarkable to follow his development, even though the reality not always is filled with roses and we have, like with all children, to guide and correct him all the time which is harder then anyone can ever believe that has not gone through the same experience. He is a remarkable little person, mostly so kind, smart and helpful, but can also drive me insane. The typical "terrible two"tantrums comes every day and we're both trying to find way to handle them and now, finally, I see that we understand them better, both of us.
But this is my life. Pure, honest and simple. Ten percent at most to myself and all the rest to the children and to the family. It's the toughest job I've ever laid my hands on, yet the one that I love beyond words and that comes with so many roller coster moments where happiness can switch to all weird tough feelings in a moment.
I can't wait for Alexis to start kindergarden (dagis) in Feb-Mars, both him and I needs it. Then next autumn, i will come back to work a bit and hopefully take on some interesting project I've been longing to do but have had nor energy nor time to do.
Picture cavalcade: 1. Today I deserved this cake from the best place - Sprüngli, 2. a sick little Alexis snuggling up in my bed, 3. a sick little chubby Leon in close up, 4. "a table"- lunch for Alexis, 5. we spend a lot of time there, 6. Alexis looks at Finding Nemo, his focus can reach to approximately 20min, 7. Kaninen (the rabbit) is always with Alexis and therefor he needs regular disinfection bath (scchhhhh), 8. Leon again, 9. a little part of me, 10. my beautiful, from inside out - boys. The meaning of life.
