THE ADMIRAL

Thomas would totally crack up if he would know how this jacket is called. He would say the jacket is called after me, and found his rightful owner once it came of the runway. I would laugh about it, and people who know me well would know what he means…

The thing is, I like structure, I like routines, and I like things to be done my way… or at least as much as possible. Obviously in a relationship, that’s not the way to do it. You won’t “be together forever” if it’s a one way thing. So I’ve learned to make compromises. Yet, I admit, it’s still not my strong suit. Then, when you have kids, well throw all these “I like it my way” thoughts out of the window, because kids – even babies – tend to make sure it goes their way. So I made even more compromises. I’ve learned, and mastered it. Daily routines, though, are something I won’t give in on. Not only for myself, but also because I believe that’s what keeps kids sane and your relationship healthy. Everyone knows – no matter what age – someway or the other, what they can expect. And that makes that no-one has expectations that won’t be met. I love to avoid disappointment, and make people happy. 1 + 1 = 2!

Needless to say, in a house-hold with kids, lots of traveling, and plenty of things coming in at the very last minute, it’s not always going the way I envisioned, and routines do get messed up. But that’s not always a bad thing. It keeps me from turning into a total control freak, and turning into the one person Thomas calls me joking: The Admiral… Yes, this jacket is called “the Admiral peacoat”. A jacket totally up my street, some days…
