As a stay at home mom, I am the one who is with the kids the most. my hubby works but even when he is home, I am still the one who takes care of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids and my hubby. But I rarely ever take time for myself, Its not that I can’t its just that I don’t. I am not going to lie, Its not so fun at times. (definitely when they are sick and have fevers) Like my son who had a 103.5 fever and no other symptoms, luckily it went down and everything went back to normal. well at least I thought it did, poor baby, I am going to take him to the doctors. hope he is ok.
My mother taught me to read when I was four years old (her first mistake). One day, I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet doors was ajar. I read the box in the cabinet. I then asked my mother why she was keeping ‘napkins’ in the bathroom. Didn’t they belong in the kitchen? Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary facts, she told me that those were for “special occasions” (her second mistake).
Now fast forward a few months….It’s Thanksgiving Day, and my folks are leaving to pick up my uncle and his wife for dinner. Mom had assignments for all of us while they were gone. Mine was to set the table. When they returned, my uncle came in first and immediately burst into laughter. Next in came his wife who gasped, and then began giggling. Next in came my father, who roared with laughter. Finally in came Mom, who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each place setting on the table with a “special occasion” napkin at each plate, with the fork carefully arranged on top. I had even tucked the little tail in so they didn’t hang off the edge!! My mother asked me why I used these and, of course, my response sent the other adults into further fits of laughter. But, Mom, you SAID they were for special occasions!!!”
