Friday 20 August 2010: Being a mum of two and what it means to Heidi




Heidi says: So I am a mum of two now. What does that mean to me? It means less time, obviously. I can't think of the time I was on here daily. It's been ages. I think having two kids isn't always good for your relationship, well, for mine then. Not sure my partner would agree but I surely do. There is so much to do, so much to stress about. Anyone who knows me well, knows I can't deal with too much pressure. Well, the pressure you get from having two kids and a household, I think it'll take years for me to get used to that! And even then. How can you get used to a big amount of stress when you can't cope with it. I think the answer is: you can't, you just have to learn to live with it. Now let that be the thing that hasn't worked for me so far. I just stress about every little thing extra to do. I go crazy on one extra little bit of dust on the floor. I curse for every cry or yell of Yma that is too much for my head. I get angry when matto doesn't eat his potatoes fast enough. Yep, I think I have a problem. The solution? At this moment I'd say: a weekend away with Nico, a sauna, a beautysaloon, heeps of lavender plants around me, a selfhelpbook of one called Martin P Seligman, going dancing, or maybe simply having a run from time to time. Cause running means, running away from all that daily stress. That then? (or maybe writing some more on this blog, sitting in the garden, with the bells of the church ringing, and Matto attacking a lavender plant which releases its scent :-) )
with all that said... I DO LOVE THEM VERY VERY MUCH!!!

Van één naar twee kids vond ik ook de allergrootste aanpassing... Probeer voldoende tijd voor jezelf te nemen... Liefs!
