Mommy Monday: Monday BluesAugust 04, 2014
I have this reoccurring problem every week. No matter how hard I try to stop it, Monday just happens and "poof" my weekend is gone!
Sadly any working mom knows what I mean. Don't get me wrong, I love my job. I love being able to help Joshua, and we love providing for our little family. Sometimes I just wish money grew on trees so the three of us could just be lazy little cuddle bugs all day everyday.
Unfortunately that will never happen, which is ok I guess. I treasure my weekends with Joshua so much. The fact that the three of us get to be together is just such a blessing. Plus Penny really notices when we are together. It makes her so happy.
But alas... another week begins and sadly today's Mommy Monday post is going to be a little lacking in the interesting department.
We had a very mellow weekend. If any of you are familiar with Canton, Ohio (aka the armpit of Ohio) and the Pro-Football Hall of Fame, you know that this past weekend was manic around here.
Joshua could care less about football, which is one of the many reasons I adore him.
I mean, we participated in the annual watching of the Hall of Fame parade, while stuffing our faces with donuts and iced coffee. But for the rest of the weekend, we tried to lay low. (Insane traffic + Kooky football fans = lots of horn honking & swearing!)
If you are a new mom, you totally understand what I mean when I say that is a horrible idea.
All at once I simply felt like I had no control. Mostly over time, but I also felt like I was just "behind."
On Friday I was putting Penny's laundry away and Joshua yelled for me to come into the living room. There was Penny on all fours. She's not crawling just yet, but that was the first time she's held herself up like that. We seriously give it like a week.
So you can see why I'm having a difficult time accepting the fact that my tiny 6lb baby is suddenly about 15 lbs. and about to start crawling all over the place.
Sigh... now I know how my mother feels.
Sorry about this dreary post. I just really needed to type out my feelings and get them where I could read them. I'm SO happy Penny is growing and that I can see her change every single day. Please don't think I am complaining at all, but sometimes I just wish she'd stay little forever. Don't we all?
