Freedom and Peace of mind in the New Year

I'm so glad to say that finally my youngest child has officially become old enough to go to Kindy. Although it is only 5 days per fortnight, this works out well as he gets to slowly start having more interaction socially with other children, he can also begin to understand discipline and boundaries from other adult figures. But on the same token he still gets some at home mum time as well. This is fantastic!! I won't know what to do with myself! It will be quiet and peaceful, maybe i will be able to start thinking again!! haha I'm hoping I will be able to get outside and do more in the garden and finally get my veggie garden happening. How many others out there have finally hit this milestone called freedom, or partial freedom?? and What are your plans for this extra time?

@Tigergirl86 I don't mind having a partial freedom what I care is financial freedom. Hope we can be all free from financial issues.

Why is their a partial freedom? Is it because you enjoy a very limited time to do your routine. In reality, I think no one enjoys the absolute freedom for we are not perfect. We have limitations. What we are apt for now is to use our freedom to others happy particularly our own family, enjoy our spare time to be productive, among others.

@dodoazo You are very right there, yes i always have very limited time, however you are right when saying no-one enjoys the absolute freedom, i hadn't really seen it like that until now. Well said!

I can remember having that time alone to get on with whatever I had planned. But don't forget to enjoy their childhood too. They'll be gone completely before you know it. And welcome to myLot. I hope you enjoy it here.

Congratulations for finally getting there. I didn't have any problems with my time as when I had my son I had a nanny to take care of him during the daytime as I was really busy. So I had lots of free time back then.

That's great he hit that milestone. You'll soon find lots to do with your free time. My kids and grandchildren are adults. I have two great grandchildren, one of which started preschool this year.
