Every mom needs a breather, right?
I think we all deserve a break and in the end it will help us to be better parents. That is just my opinion. I’ll admit it, it is hard trying to be a jack of all trades…house cleaner, cook, handy woman, trying to get back to work, fit in time at the gym (when all you really want to do is sleep) and take care of a baby. Yes, I signed up for this and I am loving it, honestly.
However, I signed Kash man up for what is called ‘Mother’s Morning Out’ at a local Church. It is only three days a week, but it will allow for a much needed break. A time where I can catch up on a few things.
Monday was his first day…and I felt like a real mom. As I walked into the auditorium looking for his classroom, I was surrounded by other moms and kids. I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that I was there to drop off MY kid. It was a morning of mixed emotions…excitement, nervousness, anxiety, relief. I was more excited for him to be able to interact with babies his age. He didn’t even realize I left the room. The moment he saw another baby sitting there, he started growling (that is the way he communicates these days) with excitement and kicking his legs. My husband Rick even wanted to be there to drop him off. He was more like the girl in the relationship. He wouldn’t leave the room and wanted to take a hundred pictures of Kash. I even had to grab his arm and pull him away as we left. Haha! Got to love him!
Kash survived his first day of school…or shall I say I survived. I was so excited to come around the corner and see his face when he saw mommy. But he was sound asleep in the crib when I walked in. Go figure! We go back Wednesday. Guess I am a real mom now.
