The absolutely weirdest thing happened this morning. I was taking clothes out for the girls and I had a whole thought process about their outfits. It started with a little dress each, then a t-shirt, then matching pants and (shock and horror) matching shoes.
As I put the outfits out I thought omigod I just colour co-ordinated their outfits. I am going to die and go to anal Mommy hell. And then I thought hey they look so cool, whatever.
That entire little internal dialogue was more about my life-long perception about what I thought I should be (career woman) vs what I ended up being (mom and worker). And I don’t mind one little bit. I LOVE my life, I am happy in the now, I am the luckiest girl alive. For the first time since I had kids it feels like I have balance and flexibility and positivity all rolled into one.
Here are the girls outside their school this morning with their outfits. I tried getting their brother in, but as you can see he had other plans..
And lastly, Jules did this post on going away for a weekend with her hubby and I am on a mission to spend an entire weekend with my husband. (Ok. To be honest I want to spend an entire day in bed reading my book and only get up to drink coffee and eat food) We are worth it. I just need to get my head around it as there is no way I can leave them with my Mom 24/7 for 2 days, but I think I’m almost there. Oh, and scrape together some SA Ront to pay for the weekend away.
