Ok I have been feeling kinda bummed towards my blog lately because at the end of the down, all the creative brain cells have left me and I am left with mush in my brain. Believe me you wouldn't want to read these posts if I actually wrote them down. However, this week was a revelation to me. On Tuesday I shared a photo on Instagram of Caleb playing with Easter eggs because I had nothing left in me at that moment and Sean had told me he was already coming home 30 minutes after he was suppose to come home. Moms, you know the feeling when you are counting the minutes towards when your husband is suppose to be home and shortly before that golden time, you get a text or call saying sorry I'm coming home later. Whether the minutes of the day ticked by slow or fast, that extra time between when your husband was suppose to come home and when he actually comes home are slow, slow as molasses. Then yesterday I posted a photo that Caleb had napped not even an hour and Sean had left for a trip for a few days. I thought I would have at least two hours to rest, relax, clean dishes, maybe even wash the floor if I was wanting to be very successful during nap time. However, I barely got anything accomplished. Staying home in the afternoon was not an option to make sure that Caleb and I didn't loose our minds staying at home. We ended up having a very enjoyable afternoon feeding the ducks and playing at the playground. Why hadn't I thought of feeding the ducks before? As I write this tonight, I am not exhausted, I am not tired, I am ready to tackle another day of just Caleb and I.
You know as a mom, you worry and you wonder about your kid a lot. You wonder are they eating healthy enough, are they getting enough sleep, are they learning what they should be?
So here I am keeping it real.
Caleb probably has more freedom than he should be at 14 months (today!), why because we don't live in a house of glass and I can't handle all day every day telling him no no no.
Some days I look at the clock waiting for Sean to come home but this makes me feel guilty because I wanted to stay home with Caleb.
Ok those are my real mom moments for you all this Friday.
