I’ll start off with the whining and end with the cute stuff and then maybe you’ll forget that I’m such a whiner 🙂
Caleb started school last Wednesday. I had three days in which I had just Ana for five hours. During this time, she takes one nap. You’d think that me having this free time would help relieve some stress.
But I find myself coming up with lots of things I’d like to do during those 90 precious minutes. Enough to fill a whole day. So, I have to pick just one thing, a nap or some sewing or cleaning.
My expectations were too high for all that I thought I would accomplish. I find myself getting frustrated. I really must keep things in perspective. In two months, I will have zero time to myself again.
But, seriously, it really is nice to know that Caleb is so happy at school hanging out with all those kids. He seems to be really disappointed when I pick him up from school. And so far, I’m doing a very good job of not taking it personally. I know he is just a people person and not one person, not even Mom, is enough on their own for him. I’m just glad he’s happy.
Okay, so for the non-whiney stuff.
I was throwing a small tantrum today because I carelessly cut a piece of fabric an inch short, which caused me to not have enough for the two pieces I needed.
Shane was trying to help me feel better by saying “You’ll figure out a way to make it work.” To which I hissed “No! I’ve ruined it!”
Then Caleb came over to me and said “Mommy, I think you are really good at this stuff.” and he gave me a hug. Awwww. Sometimes, he is just so sweet 🙂
And then later…
(Caleb was being really cuddly, hugging me and nuzzling into me and trying to sit in my lap.)
Me: Caleb, you are getting a little too big for this. (I said this because of his size and the size of my belly, not because of his age.)
Caleb: Too big? For love?
