#LivingArrows – Happy Hopping & Homework 39/52 (2020)

How is it that kids can go from being distraught to delighted in a matter of minutes? Honestly, I spent almost the entire day worrying myself sick as poor J had got himself into a bit of a tizzy over a bus journey. As it turns out, he arrived home safe and sound, with a smile on his face acting as cool as a cucumber, and if this morning’s many messages (which he sent me whilst in distress) were a figment of my imagination!

Meanwhile, E went to school with a limp, claiming to have a sore foot which I also spent most of this morning worrying myself over only to find that this afternoon shes quite literally hopping through the kitchen happy as larry.

As if I haven’t got enough to worry about at the moment, I’m also been struggling with a mega amount of ‘Mum guilt’ which was entirely unnecessary as come this evening J was happy doing his homework whilst his sister read her book before hopping around the kitchen without any mention of pain or discomfort.

Let’s hope that tomorrow I won’t have to dash out to the bus stop like a madwoman in my slippers to hand over J’s forgotten jacket nor inspect a random foot for a non-existent bruise. Let’s hope that things are a little easier all round tomorrow, though I suspect that may be asking just a tad too much at present!

Thank you for reading and as always, I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

    Isn’t it always the case! We worry ourselves to death and within seconds they’re laughing it off whilst we take an age to get over it!
