Yesterday marks 2 years since we picked up the keys to our first home together and 2 years since I flew the nest! Today marks 2 years since we officially moved in together.
I still remember all those feelings of excitement, happiness and reluctance. I was so excited to start this new journey into adulthood, happy because I finally had something to show for working all those hours and reluctant to leave my Mum and my family home behind.
Even now I get home sick. I didn’t think I did until the other night when I was putting Scarlett to bed and I thought of my Mum putting me to bed. I couldn’t go to sleep without my Mum coming in and kissing me goodnight and she would always say the same thing. “Nunight, see you in the morning, love you lots!” I haven’t heard this said in such a long time and its the small things like this that I miss.
I would not change Scarlett for the world but sometimes I miss my pre-baby days. Mainly the freedom I had and the lack of responsibility. But then Scarlett only has to look at me and I know that she is the best thing to have ever come of my life!
How did you feel when you flew the nest? Did you move straight in with a partner or did you live alone?
