Hours turning into days, weeks and suddenly we are more than a month further!
Don´t know where the time is going but it feels like it´s flying.
This blog seemed a good idea at first as I would have lots of time being a mum and spending most of my time at home, but I´m not sure anymore?!
I do have lots of time, but it´s nothing like I thought it would be.
Days passes like; “Not much is happening but I get nothing done”
To be Morris mum is the most amazing thing and I love him to bits. Nothing feels more important and he gives me butterflies of happiness when I watch him.
My struggles is to get my mind on something else. It´s like he is filling my whole head!
To write a blog has been on my “to do list” every day this last 6 weeks but I can´t think of anything interesting to write about.
Maybe it will come, maybe not… Or maybe you have a wish?!
Martin left for training camp with his team this morning. That means home alone for the first time since Morris arrived and it´s funny how I for the first time feel like I´m the lucky one.
Dropping him off at the train station was weird and not like any time before. To kiss me good bye is routine. But this time was different… and I´m happy it isn´t me leaving for 10 days.
As a rider I was always a bit jealous about the pro men. I used to think that it´s not fair how easy it is for them to move on with their life while still being active. They can start a family and have their wife’s at home raising the kids while they keep doing what they do…
I know some women give birth during their career and I really do admire them. That has never been an option for me as I can´t see how I could combine those two. Maybe it would be different if I was doing a more individual sport like cross country skiing or mtb where you can “be your own team” and travel the world and have your baby with you?!
I was very determined to finish my career before starting this next chapter and I´m very glad I made that decision.
What I understand now is that I had no reason to be jealous of the pro men because it isn´t any easier for them. Being the mum or dad doesn´t matter, it´s never easy to leave the little one. They grow up so fast and by leaving, if only for some days, you risk missing out of the first smile, the first step, the first words or just as simple as the smell of their skin.
Martin got almost 4 weeks at home from Morris birth and that has been perfect for our little family. But to be home for so long while the season is rolling has also been weird for him and towards the end he started to get restless. He loves his job and couldn´t wait to get back into it, at the same time realizing he will miss Morris.
He is already the best dad in the world and what´s good with him leaving is that he will be back soon!
Home alone for the first time won´t last long as my parents are visiting.
14 Days before due date I posted a competition where you could guess the gender and weight of our baby at birth.
It has been fun going through all your guesses, and no one got it 100% right.
I did have two people that guessed BOY 3250gram and that was the closest to Morris 3230gram.
One of them got her guess in on the 13th of April and since Morris was born on the 11th unfortunatley your answere was too late.
So theWinner is Sara Lindblom 🙂
I will Contact you per email and the price will be sent your way.
Thanks to everyone that participated 🙂
