We’ve been watching the Olympics. I can’t remember that last time I actually sat down and watched the Olympics. I know, how very unpatriotic of me. I forgot how much I loved watching the games. Cheering for Canada! Getting out of your seat with excitement. Not knowing what is going to happen, or thinking you’ve just predicted the final outcome and reality happens and you are yet again on the edge of your seat.
This is the first time I’ve watched the Olympics with my kids.
Do you ever have those moments in life where you question everything? You question if the choices you’re making are the right ones? The things you tell your kids, and then do they grasp a bit of what you’ve explained. You question career choices, the food you bought, the shoes you’re wearing. I mean EVERYTHING. 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.
We all have bad days, we all have moments of mass emotional explosions, we all need time to ourselves. The little ones don’t always understand that.
It’s story time folks.
A mother of two was looking at her list of things to do this week, and it was a busy one at that. It was a beautiful day out, so she thought that maybe she could pick up a birthday gift and then swing by the park for her kids on the way home. She shared her plan to her oldest, as the youngest didn’t understand the word, ‘park’.
I had the best mother’s day ever – yes granted that this is only my third one, it was pretty amazing.
Words can not describe how awesome it was. From start to finish. I decided to document the day!
