Just a quick post today as I am up to my elbows in folded clothes and suitcases. I am desperately trying not to fall into the trap of over packing…and I suspect failing miserably.
Anyway, I just wanted to share something that touched me last night.
Have you ever noticed how you can listen to a song, read or hear something and interpret it completely differently from the way you’d previously thought of it?
Last night, Hubbster and I sat in the man cave for an hour with a glass of wine and listened to some music. Okay…so maybe there was slighly more than ‘a’ glass of wine involved!
One of the songs on the playlist which I must have heard a thousand times came on.
For the first time I related the words to myself and motherhood.
If my life was a TV series, and I had a theme tune…this would be it.
The last five years for me, since first the Woo, then Foghorn and Bubble, came into our lives have been a rollercoaster ride of emotions and experiences. There have been up and downs. I have screamed, laughed, felt the adrenalin course through my veins and some days just held on for dear life.
But I have learnt that this is ok. I don’t have to be in the top carriage of the ferris wheel every day.
As Tom Petty says:
Some days are diamonds
Some days are rocks
Some doors are open
Some roads are blocked….
I’ll let him do the rest…and you can tell me what you think. Can you relate your parenting journey to this song too? What would your theme tune be?
