In a few days we go back to Hong Kong. Family members have been asking if I am excited to go back, and I tell them I have mixed feelings.
On the one hand, I like Sweden, but there is less socialization opportunity here for the little guy in our current situation – especially the winter. On the other hand, while Hong Kong has tons of potential things to do and see, it is a bit exhausting sometimes there. Things are a bit more complicated than they need to be, and so on.
In addition to this, it is no breeze to fly with the little guy anymore, as he likes to move around and is getting more opinionated about what he sees/has in his hands/eats/experiences. Also there’s the jetlag, which is not super fun.
On the plus side when thinking about jetlag, now is a good time to press the “reset” button on any routines of habits regarding sleep that we don’t like with the little guy. Like for example he is currently waking up a couple of times a night, so I can use this opportunity to take another crack at effective sleep training and making sure he is being set up for success to sleep thru the night.
Lots of positives always about both places, but to me I guess it is just important that both feel like “home.”
