I confess...

I have some things I need to get off my chest and confess to you all.

I confess that last week I hung up the phone on a doctor because he wouldn't let me talk after 5 minutes of him yelling at me for nothing I had done, just trying to settle a bill with him and insurance is all, I was over it. You better believe he is getting a nasty review on Yelp...

I confess my sweet tooth is in overdrive lately. I can not stop eating sugar... help me...

I confess that when I am tired I tend to eat whatever is in front of me and eat a lot of it and I have been tired a lot lately

I confess this season of the bachelorette is pretty dang boring, Andi is pretty flat. Why did they do a recap of the first three episodes of the season? The season hasn't been that exciting for a recap. 

I confess all this political talk this week of Congressman Cantor of Virginia losing to an unknown economics professor, David Brat, has me wishing I was working again in politics. I miss those days of beig amongst coworkers, chit chatting about all things political.

I confess some days it is just easier to stay at home in my pjs with Caleb all day. Some days I am not proud of it and it makes me feel lazy, some days after a few days of go go go, it is how I recharge my batteries.

I confess that I didn't know that this symbol, &, was called an ampersand until it became popular in home decor and on clothes.

I confess half of the time I feel like I am failing at a lot.

I confess that I feel guilty at times that Sean and I decided to quit my job and he is fully responsible for providing for this family and then Sean tells me not to feel guilty, I get to do what I always wanted, stay home with Caleb.

Speaking of Caleb, here is my lovebug.
 My dad was in town one night last week for business!

Caleb's smile is contagious! And I feel pretty guilty too for not working right now {and I was involved with policy/political work too!}. My husband tells me not to feel guilty but I don't know.. there is something about not supporting us financially that makes me feel bad.

Aww Caleb looks so happy! Cute!! I hate issue with doctors...that's part of the reason I want to handle medical stuff naturally and not deal with doctors and healthcare anymore. I used to not eat sweets until I got married...now I want them all the time for some reason. And I agree....Andi is boring. I understand the feeling of failing but I don't think you are. Just from what I know of you...you sound like a wonderful mother and that's so important! :)

It is kind of hard to feel guilty when you get to be home and spend the day with your favourite little person while your partner works hard all day to support the whole family. And, I find it awkward to ask for money to buy things...esp things like hey can Aria have some money to get you something for father's day. Just feels weird to use money he earned to buy him something.

You are not failing! You may struggle with something but you are not failing. And Caleb is SO LUCKY for ALL the one-on-one time with his momma so don't you regret that for one second!! :)

PJs all day, why not? You have a tough job and getting "ready" each day isn't #1 on the list I am sure! Funny how when we're tired, we eat more, but because we're tired, we never exercised in the mix, either. Oh, hello, extra 5 lbs. ha. No bueno!

Heather said...

I can't believe that doctor was so rude to you. I think you were right to hang up, because mean-spirited people just aren't worth the time. Your little boy is super cute!

Sarah said...

oh my gosh those cheeks! Love them so much! I'm with you on the sugar thing, especially after the kids go to bed and we're just watching tv...it's awful!

Meg, I love your honesty! Posts like this make me think I should start up my blog again, it's so good to just put it out there and be real with the world. I totally get how you feel about being comfy in PJ's and then feeling bad for being "lazy", and for letting your hubs bring in the bacon while you are at home. I plan to go back to work part time (In response to your question earlier!) but for now Brian is paying all the bills. It's crazy how much work it is to take care of a baby though. I used to keep our house immaculately clean all the time, and have delicious meals made from scratch every day, and now I'm doing good if I can even empty the dishwasher! To be honest, I really don't know how it's going to work to go back to work part time. I know it's only 3 days a week, but it is so hard getting out the door on time, especially having hair done, makeup o and a stylish outfit, AND having him ready and fed, his diaper bag ready for the day, enough milk pumped to last the day...It's quite a challenge. I've actually started back up already, just a couple clients here and there, and it is SO HARD. We'll see how it goes!

That last photo makes it all worth it!! I am giggling over the ampersand - that was too cute!! The job you have now is of the utmost importance!!

Lauren said...

such a sweet, sweet boy! and you're not alone when you feel like you're failing...I think we've all been there when trying to juggle motherhood and life!

Hilary said...

Gahhhh, so cute!!!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Oh that happy face! I love it! Your little boy is so stinkin' cute!

Aw... kind of agree about the bachelorette... I think they did the recap because of Eric... and to put some space between the next episode to not make it look like they just moved on? Not sure though.

p.s. I would write a nasty Yelp review too!!!
