I Call It ‘The Curse’… But It’s Not What You Think

the curse 2

The first few days when my husband is away, they are always the worst. The kids miss there Dad and in turn, act out a little. We then start to adjust to our secondary routine — yes we have two, one when Dad’s home and one when Dad’s away. The dog even has a new routine when Dad’s away. My daughter tries to see how far she can push me, what she can get away with – It isn’t much, but I have to give her credit for trying.

Life certainly changes when Dad’s away.

The first few days, my anxiety runs a little higher than usual because of ‘The Curse’. Oh yes, I have given it the name.

Do you ever have those moments in life where you question everything? You question if the choices you’re making are the right ones?

You question your fears and worries, are they stupid? Then you question if you should be worrying over your fears and worries… yes, I am currently there. Silly all of it I know, yet, I still do it.

I have these moments all the time. I am having them frequently in this current moment in my life. I think it’s because my maternity leave is coming to an end.

I love products that are good for me and my family. I don’t know about you but I feel that I’s getting harder and hard to find products that are safe for my family. So many recalls, so many lawsuits, so many toxins being put into our bodies. We love in a very consumable world, use, toss repeat.

Being a Mum of two kids, under the age of 3, sometimes you don’t get to hear your own thoughts. You forget to drink water for 3 days and you can’t figure out why you feel like you’re shutting down. You sometimes even scream and no one hears you. You put your needs (showering, eating, sleeping, etc) aside so that your kids can have your attention. You don’t always take care of you and you wonder if anyone notices. Do they realize that I just spent 6 hours making these bubbles stations, and all these fun outdoor actives together? Do they realize that I only slept for 4 hours last night and I”m running on fumes? Do they realize that I need a break?
