My Kidspot Village Voices Grateful prompt this week is 'Bedtime' and I confess I find it such an irresistible topic that I'm going to write about it here as well.
As you know, when you go through the big life-change that is Having Babies, many friendships are put to the test. My abiding friendship with Bedtime has been one of those tested. We used to be best buddies, Bedtime and I, but these days we don't seem to have anything in common. I still love her, I really do, but I can't seem to find the time for her any more and she just doesn't understand that I've got other priorities. Besides, these new friends I'm hanging out with, they don't like her very much at all and as much as I love Bedtime, I kinda love my new friends more. Me and Bedtime these days, well, it's... awkward.
Despite that, this week I'm grateful for...
236. Bedtime - one day my new friends will love you as much as I do and we'll get back together. I promise.
237. Time out - for both me and my 'new friends'.
238. Remembering - this was the first year that we didn't see an Anzac Day parade. We all missed that chance for reflection, although I think the important thing to remember is that the fight for freedom goes on every single day. Then, now and into the future. Maybe one day we will really be free.
Yep, I've got (even) more to say about the divine Bedtime over at my new Kidspot Village Voices home. I'd love to see you there. I even get to reply to your cherished comments. Exciting!
