I am not sure if I deserve to be celebrated or to get a firm boot in the ass.
Over the past year, I've still been doing my overnight schedule...which means there has been less time to spend with my kiddo than I would like. A lot of our quality time spent together is either at the dinner table or getting ready for school in the morning. My husband picks up most of the slack with the bedtime routine and homework help due to me needing to rest before I head back to work at night. I wish there was more I could do for my daughter...but honestly I don't have anything left to give at this point. I can truthfully say that I am doing the best I can. I am trying my damndest to balance being a full-time mom and a full-time worker bee. Add onto that I picked a career which flip-flops my days and nights. (When the rest of my life is supposed to continue on the normal daytime pattern.)
Okay, maybe I could use a card or something.
Did I mention that I am secretly hoping my husband actually buys me that police scanner I've been wanting? A friend of mine has been talking about hers for years and I'm always jealous that she knows more about what's going on around town than I do....so maybe someone can put a bug in his ear that they're not too expensive and can be found at Best Buy or RadioShack....
Lastly, I would like to say that on this Mother's Day, I really feel like we're making progress in our lives. We have our own house, are both stable in our jobs, and I'd like to think we're doing a bang-up job of raising the youngun'. We're finally grown ups! Who would've thoughtI'd ever get to this point?
Speaking of which....
Thank you for all you've done for me over the years, Mom(s).
Mother and wife by day, psych RN by night. So many different ways to view life. I try to take everything in and be very slow to judge.
