Not the way I intended it to, at least. I am more comfortable to go out alone with the kids to have a noce afternoon, to do fun things and have a great time, but I’m not alone then. Not at all.
It’s not that I am going out by myself much. In the mornings I keep myself busy with all kinds of things and that’s fine, but I would NEVER get it in my head to go into a café to have a cup by myself somewhere. Or maybe to visit a museum or do something other than a simple errand by myself.
And if I would, I wouldn’t feel comfortable….
That’s why I’m going to give up on this goal. It’s just nothinng for me… I wish I could be that self confident but I am not and if I can’t hide behind my children, I don’t want to be anywhere, anyway… 8 months ago
Are wonderful for the kids. We took along our neighbour’s daugther as well and I only saw the three of them to ask for somethging to drink (or icecream).
With a cup of coffee and a journal to scribble in, I was actually feeling very comfortable. This was good! Something to do more often.
A lesson learned here: take along something to do like a journal or a book, the camera or something else to keep myself busy. :)11 months ago
With alone, I mean only with my son and daughter. Not waiting for someone else to join on some weekend-activities anymore.
Last weekend we went to the zoo “alone”. This weekend to see my family. I am already preparing for a vacation by ourselves and a few more outings to the sea or to a museum…
It still feels strange and I can’t say I like it. Maybe doing it more often is going to help me to finally feel comfortable with it. 11 months ago
