I’m baaaaack, but I might disappear for another week again before going back to regular posting. We are hosting the StrongFirst Certification this coming weekend so I’ll be busy day and night! So excited to be participating as an assistant!
When I last wrote, I metioned my jaunt back to corporate America and some house projects we have going on. After that, Mike was away all last weekend so Connor and I had some bonding time, play dates and down time at home. It was a nice low-key weekend and Connor was really well-behaved.
Can you just check out these two? They love each other.
Unfortunately, a few days later my poor little man got really sick so we spent lots of time snuggling on the couch last week. I hated seeing him so sick, but I have to admit the snuggle time was wonderful.
So yes, I put some of my work (and all of my blogging) on hold last week in order to take care of my child and make sure that he got better. I’m going to be honest here and admit that one of the hardest things about being a mom can be having to suddenly put your life on hold and change your plans when you have a sick kid or can’t find childcare.
Last week I realized that I’m finally (almost 2 years later!) getting used to this aspect of motherhood and I actually appreciate the way that being a first-time mom has made me slightly less up-tight. A dirty house, missed gym time, or an unexpected change of plans used to turn my world upside down and now I am learning to go-with-the-flow a little bit more.
I’m thankful that motherhood is teaching me about what’s important in life and what’s not worth stressing about. I’m a work in progress and I certainly still stress out when things don’t go as planned, but I’m getting there. Slowly, but surely. One day at a time.
Moms, in what ways has having a child changed you for better or worse?
