A Mothers Day

We never get to spend time as a family outside together. My son and his father spends it by themselves while I am at home. Things are changing back to how it was before. Us not being together which is okay by me. Things are overwhelming so I'd rather spend it us separately than us together but not peacefully.

But I miss my son. True that we spend the week together but me being at home means that my mind is constantly thinking of chores and what to prepare for lunch/dinner and ... I am multi tasking. Mother, cook, housekeeper, blogger and gardener.

Luckily we had a chance to spend it out together. Its a proper day out for us. Bus ride and Bristol Aquarium.

And me not worrying about house things.

The adventure started with the bus with my son happy that he can move and is not strapped. He is so amazed of the view that you can see on the secind deck.
The fact that we are as high as the traffic lights and that we can see the front gardens of the house we pass by.

We arrive in Bristol and he is just jumping with joy. I took some photos of our trip but not as much as outr trips before. I made sure that this one is special.
Every place where we would run and look I made sure that I explain as much and we do as much.

He is not sad here just looking intently at a fish in front of him!

When we get out the Shaun The Sheep statue is free (it was BUSY when we arrived so we skipped it) and we got a chance to have a photo!
This also made me realized how big my son is now. How can it be? Where did the time go?

We then went to the library to make some crafts. It rained hard and after the rain we went out again to go to the park.
Soggy sand is perfect for cakes according to him and he made lots of those.

After the playground I can tell that he is tired so though I want this trip to last longer we need to go home.
On the bus ride home he slept on my lap (bus is busy) and woke up when we arrived home.

My son on my lap and me smelling his head will always be my definition of heaven.

It is so nice to be given a chance to be just a mother for a day.

It's great that you got to be mum for a day and you and your son got had a brilliant day together. Sometimes it's difficult to tear away from the list of things you know need doing and stop to spend some time with the little ones, it's great when you do though. He looks like he's had a fab day with you. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.

Sounds like it was a wonderful day out. Like you, I love those days together, although N now loves being out with his dad on the farm all day, which means it's harder to get him away for us to do something.

Lovely photos #magicmoments

What a lovely day out for you both and so glad that you were able to just stop and enjoy it. The aquarium looks like it was fun and I love the mermaids! What a gorgeous moment on the bus coming home with your son falling asleep on your lap - definitely a memory to treasure.

Hi Merlinda - don't you just looking at the world through kids eyes... A rainy afternoon making soggy sand just perfect for making cakes? You have truly taken time out to smell the roses and connect with the important wonders of life, our children. Well done you, the household chores can wait!

What a Fun Trip!
I love the Shaun The Sheep. Those characters are so cute. My kids used to laugh at Wallace and Gromit. They haven't seen it in awhile though.

I'm like you - I get so busy during the week with dinners, and housework. Trying to keep up with everything takes a lot of time. Making meals is good, but time consuming. I make most of them.

I'm sorry you're going through a rough spot, but so glad you were able to have that day together. I went through something similar not long ago, but it was easy to find genuine joy in the act of togetherness. Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.
