Even when she’s 25 & leaves home, you won’t be a part time parent.😊
It is difficult to start with. I saved up all the stuff it is hard to do with a baby in tow, and did that during the weekends. Get your hair cut, redecorate a room, Xmas shopping, go for a swim or do a class. Try a new recipe, get the car mot’d Have a massage. Make a cake for when she gets home.
add a bottle of wine, a long hot bath, music etc. It will eventually seem like a good thing x
