Week 14 | Project 52 | Chatham-Kent Lifestyle Photography

Our first week of my parental leave was both amazing and eye-opening. Being home with a busy toddler who is out of his routine is hard, especially at 36 weeks pregnant. We had so much fun for the week, just the two of us, but we had our fair share of melt downs too (both of us). I had a few panicked moments of “how am I going to do this with a newborn baby?”, and a few sappy moments of “am I going to be able to spend this quality time with him with a newborn?”. I know we will adjust and adapt, I’m sure with a few more meltdowns (from both of us), but I am trying my best to practice grace, and not worry so much about perfection.

We hit up the Children’s Museum in London, spent a few days at home in our jim-jams, did some crafts and baking, played with friends at the park, educated ourselves on dinosaurs at the library, and Archer had his very first dentist appointment. Archer was also beyond excited when Daddy came home with his new truck,¬†and he has been telling everyone – “My daddy got a new truck. It’s white. It’s a diesel”. So, if you’re looking for specs, he’s your guy.
