Just the 2 of us – week three
With all the festivities of the week that included early rises and late nights, it was hard for me to fit another one to one time apart from the one I mentioned earlier in the week with ‘the eldest’ – Isis. I was hoping to not use that time as we ended up having a very personal conversation.
Here’s a snippet from the day that it happened :
‘In the morning (before I realised we were running out of nappies) I was driving my Mum to work (we’re staying at her home) and thought it would be a good time to grab some one on one time with Isis. I asked James if he minded us having an hour, he replied, ‘of course not,’ so off I went with Isis.
We went to Costa as it had a free car park right outside. I got my usual Decaf Gingerbread Latte and Isis tried a ‘Sticky Toffee Creamy Cooler’ she let me have a sip, way too sickly for me but she loved it.
Normally, in a ‘Just the 2 of us‘ post I would have more pictures and what we chatted about. Isis and I ended up having a very personal conversation, she offloaded something she had been carrying around for 3 years and broke down on me in the middle of Costa. It was so sad, but also very precious that we were able to bond on an even deeper level. As you can appreciate, this blog is for them, and some things are just meant to be shared between
stepmum and daughter.’

I intended to grab some more one on one time with another child at some point in the week, but time just didn’t allow. I will be spending one on one time with Isis and Shayla-Rae again this week as then they will be going back to ‘the other mummy’s.’ I still intend to spend one on one time with them when they’re back at school etc. but it’s not as easy. In the time that we get them, with dance and church etc. the one on one time that I want them to have is with their Daddy, so I come second to that. I will be able to have time with Judah and Eden in the week, and try and squeeze in time with the girls too, will probably happen more like a once a month with the girls though.
Here is a video of our journey down to Worthing, no not all 7 hours of it. This is a short clip of when the traffic stopped and Isis found my backing tracks for the pupils I teach. We had a great little sing song. This is ‘Let it Go’ although we got all the words muddled up. I love being able to share moments like this with her. The faces she starts pulling towards the end made me laugh when I watched it back later.
