Remember me harping on about the Second Trimester energy boost and how it clearly must just be pure pregnancy propaganda to keep us poor pregnant souls going through the arduous First Trimester?
I have now unearthed the beautiful secret.
This is the magical key to the much desired energy boost.
Pack up offspring in car and go to your mothers house.
Enjoy the fact that in her own house she is primarily responsible for all cooking and cleaning.
Revel in the joy that she doesn't get to see her grandson's as often as she'd like so is more than happy to entertain them while you rest.
Wonder how on earth you were blessed with such a great mother in the first place when she gets up at 7am with the kids and encourages you to sleep until 11am.
Yep 11am. Like you're 15 again.
Leave 4 days later feeling completely refreshed but slightly devastated that it's over and normality ensues.
Thanks Mum, we had a wonderful visit. I may well be returning.
