Their day, is Friday.
Our day is Friday.
Friday for us is a wonderful spontaneous and free day.
Friday was once his day, it is now their day, to share as brothers.
Before I became a mum of two I spent most Fridays at home with my first born.
It was our day to play, a day when I would not worry about all the jobs that were waiting be done. I would simply just swim in his guiding current and allow him to set the flow. As my routine of caring for two begins to settle, I have found we have slipped back into that lovely way of life.
I have written about such days here. Since then I have been inspired to continue to record these days of free play. I know how lucky I am to be able to dedicate a whole day to my children. I am also aware that before we know it both boys will be in school and I will be back at full time work dreaming of those lazy Fridays we spent at home enjoying each others company.
I have decided to begin a new series. It will be posted every Friday and it will be called “Friday is their Day”. Perhaps we can inspire you to do the same, if you have a day of the week that you can dedicate solely to the flow of your children, to bathe in their precious moments.
If you do not have children maybe you can find a day that you can allow yourself to just be ,opening you’re eyes and ears to the world, letting go, in whatever way that may be.
Is that not what life is about, letting go and being in the moment?
We read books, we dance, we have picnics in the garden.
It usually does not take much, all they want, is for you to give them some undivided attention.
The day usually ends with two tired but happy boys and a happy me with a large glass of red wine celebrating life, the arrival of the weekend and with it time to spend as a whole family.
