Hi loves. It feels so weird to have time to be all by myself during the days. With time for myself, to think, do work, take a long shower, go wild and put on a face mask if I want to, go out and just sit in the sun and listen to music for a while.
It's our first week with a nanny here and our new routine is that in the morning I spend 1 hour quality time with Nate when Thomas has gone to work. Then our nanny comes here and I get ready before I start my day. Then I work for some hours and take some time for myself to do something I enjoy before the nanny leaves. When she leaves for the day I feel so relaxed, knowing that I've gotten all work done for the day and having had time for some me-time as well. Then I spend 1-2 more hours of quality time with Nate before Thomas gets back from work.
Yesterday I spent those hours going on a long walk with Nate and then making dinner with him by my side. Hiring a nanny already feels like the absolut best choice I've made in a long time. I even have time to miss my lil bubba a little hehe.
I used to feel the need to be available and answer work stuff every hour of the day. Now that I have time to actually sit down and get everything done without getting disturbed or being in a rush it feels completely different. When the nanny leaves I can just turn off my phone knowing that I'm "done for the day" and then I just want to spend time with my family. Even if I notice my mailbox just keeps getting bombed throughout the evening I'm fine knowing that I'll have time to look through everything in the morning. And mentally this makes such a big different! I feel so much more relaxed and calm.
