I’m not going to lie, for the last 6 months myself and Rico have been treading water. Adjusting to living together, working and looking after leo. It hasn’t been unpleasant but it hasn’t been without it’s fair share of worry.
We had a situation a couple of months ago where Rico worked for an employer who just point blank refused to pay him any of his wage and only payed part of it when we threatened to take her to court, which really isn’t something a young family with bills and a baby need (god I wish I could expose the woman but I’m sure she’d love to get that money back taking us to court for defamation of character). So for a number of months that we should have been enjoying Leo’s young years we had to concentrate on her.
Finally though we’re in a position with a stable job and a positive outlook, I am dealing with my baby blues better on a daily basis and even going back to work at the weekend and Leo is absolutely thriving every second of every day. I have genuinely never been happier in my life and am now able to plan the future with Ricardo instead of just taking each day as it comes.
We’re even going to Rico’s home town in Portugal for 2 weeks in August which is so exciting. I just want Leo to be aware of all of his cultures and even though he won’t be able to remember going to there this tim when he’s older, he’ll feel so comfortable going there, like a second home which is all I want. I know it doesn’t seem like the biggest of deals but I have only been in Rico’s family for the last two years and I love their family, I love their sense of family spirit and the cute little traditions that I hadn’t even heard of.
All I can say is I’m looking forward to Everything that is to come and spending time with Leo, Rico, his family and especially my own. It’s so nice to now be able to enjoy every single milestone instead of consuming myself with worry and I can genuinely say I have never been in a better place.
Sorry if this was a bit of a lame post and a bit random as I haven’t posted in a while but this blog is for documenting and I thought this if there is anything I’d enjoy looking back at it’s this.
I hope you are all well.
