OK, I have just spent about 8 hours straight with my kids, being their primary and only caregiver except for a 20 minute break.
With Chris gone golfing, I thought that I'd started out on the right foot with sleeping in. And that was such a good decision that lasted me through about 4, which is when I thought that he would be home. By that time however, I was slowly unraveling, which makes me so ashamed! I want him to play golf and have a good time. I want to spend time with my kids, but Holy Mary, not for almost 8 hours straight by myself. And in all honesty, they get pretty sick of my mug too.
So, I wanted to send out the love to all of the parents that slowly unravel, yet keep it somewhat together. Today, I felt your pain and your strength! All love to you.
I'm able to write this in the quiet, Thank You! because they are all on a walk to get pizza. Then, they will return in time for their wonderful sitter, and I get to go out for dinner! Oh yeah, with Chris too. And in all honesty, I shouldn't be mad, because it really wasn't his fault he was late.
My mantra today, whispered to myself many many times, "patience patience patience" in slow breaths. Patience for all of us.
Congrats to me!!! I made it! I"m going to change out of these baby-mama clothes into something nice!
