Had to share this with you all!
Today there was a lot of umming and arrring as mum didn't really want to leave dad whilst the carer came in for 4 hours respite
Eventually she spoke to dad and explained that we do now have respite twice a week for 4 hours and I'd like to pop out, mum cried and told dad she wished he could come too, dad cried too but said mum should go n he understood, progress in itself!!
So mum and I ventured out locally to the shops where mum bought some new clothes, with massive smiles on her face and saying she was enjoying herself I said lets do lunch so we did!
We came back, me with a much happier mummy 😀 with 2 hours to spare!
Next week we will aim for 3 hours and eventually up to 4 hours!
I feel very emotional knowing that mum is happier as am I, done us both the world of good!
So thank you, all of you for your sound advice, because finally mum is understanding the 'need' for time out and I loved it!!
