Child of light

Back then, when I wasn't even pregnant I used to consider myself to be night's daughter. You could see me walk around the town or simply at home. But always at night. My lifestyle was like sleep during the day...live during the night! And it worked fine for me back then...I mean, all I had to do was go to my job and that's all. No responsibility! Not any serious responsibility at least! When I became a mama, I suddenly was responsible about too many things. Not more than I can handle...but, from zero to a lot is something hard to get use to. While I was trying to accept my new role (still trying) and manage to do all these new things, including keeping the home clean & tidy, taking care of the baby, have dramatically less time for myself and everyone else, I changed my sleeping habits many times. At first I used to wake up all the time to feed the baby, of course. But, when he started sleeping overnight (at about 3 months, taking him to our bed worked for us), I realised that waking up early was gooooood! Waking up is the best time of my day. This is when I get the chance to drink a glass of lemon water and to tidy the home a bit, while my coffee is getting ready. Then, enjoy my coffee with the company of my laptop. This quiet personal morning time, while my boys are still sleeping, is such a pleasure! But it's not just that. I found out that most of the jobs I had to do, could happen better or only happen if I did them early...like laundry, doctors, public services and all those exciting stuff. Besides, we had a heavy winter here. Ok, it's Greece...how much heavy it could be?! But, seriously it was. All those years it was cold but we had the sun shining for us now and then. This year, there were continuous cloudy days...the sun wouldn't come out...not even for a minute! So depressing! Last three days have been a blessing for everyone! Three days of continuous sunshine after all this bad weather! I was out of the house most of the time to fill my batteries! Everyone around here was so happy these days! Today it's cloudy again, but I don't mind...I have plenty of sunshine inside me. Isn't it amazing how the weather changes your mood? Seriously, I love the sun...I can't imagine I could ever live somewhere like England. I NEED the sun!
