It´s Friyay! I seriously can´t wait for the weekend to begin, this week at work has drained me. Check out my last week´s mom life favorites and make sure to drop your own posts in the link-up.
Time for a little update from the Hernández-Franssen house. To say that the last weeks have been rough would have been the understatement of the century. Apart from all the chaos that came from buying a new house, moving and renting out our old place, the bichin started daycare in September basically meaning that he has been getting all the germs and every possible form of flu you can think off.
There you are, as a first-time-daycare-mom dropping off your little “baby” for someone else to take care of him for the rest of the day. Yes, you have been postponing this moment for a year so maybe he´s not so baby anymore, but still he´s your baby how on earth is a stranger going to take care of him?
Now that the bichin turned 1 in July we thought it was time to find a daycare as well for the times that we are working. Grandparents are obviously nice but something with interaction with other kids, playing together, and, especially, not getting incredibly spoiled were decisive factors for us. Yes, I know that grandparents spoil their grandkids per definition, that is kind of part of their job description, but if my dear bichini spends 3 or 4 afternoons a week at his Spanish grandparents the whole spoiling thing could be a little less in my mind.
There you are, after a year of hard work and the chaos that this motherhood gig brings, finally the holidays are there. Two weeks of relaxing, beaches, nice food, reading and sunbathing. Call me naïve, but that is still somewhat how I started this trip. Yes, obviously I knew it would be different this time going on holidays with a kid (less relaxing probably) but still, I did not really count on a working holiday.
