100 Days of Happiness – Day 63

I woke up so early this morning as Samudra was sticking his fingers up my nose and poking my face, so I got lots of morning cuddles before bathing him and getting him ready for his new nanny.  I thought I would start crying when Putra told me she had arrived… how absolutely pathetic of me.. but I’m just being honest!  She seems so lovely and I feel really guilty for wishing she didn’t have to come.

I actually got a lot done in the morning and still had to feed Samudra and I sat with him while he slept and worked on my computer.  Don’t worry, I will get better at letting go, it’s just going to take me a couple of days to get used to the idea that I don’t need to be with him 24 hours a day, and I can have some freedom to do what I need to do.

In the afternoon I headed directly across the street after discovering Fany, the birthday girl, was the little girl who cries every time she sees Putra or I walking past her.  I wasn’t sure I should be the one to take Samudra to the party as I didn’t want her to start screaming crying as usual, but today she surprised me as I carried Samudra and we handed her a birthday present.  She even let me take a photo of her and there were no tears.. until Putra showed up!

It was sweltering in the garage as the kids played games and ‘Dora the Explorer’ showed up, making the younger kids cry, but it was also lovely to see all the kids from the neighbourhood together playing for the party.  At least kids can’t get lonely here as there’s always so many people to play with and you have to love that.

I hope you had a beautiful day too wherever you are in the world.
