Hubby and I got things a little confused and we thought the daycare is closed tomorrow. So hubby took the day off to spend with Honeybear. Yesterday I decided to surprise them and take the day off too (it is hubby’s birthday Saturday but he is working). I had planned out a whole day of birthday celebration for the three of us.
I mixed it all up and the daycare is actually open. So I told hubby it is open tomorrow, without telling him my birthday plan. He said he would go to work in that case. I was so disappointed. I know why he needs to work, but he already has the day off. His work is difficult and in retail Friday is not a good day for leave, but he does actually have the day off anyway.
Later in the evening I mentioned the birthday plans to him. He was really apologetic and said it was fine. He would take the leave day. I said no. Work is more important as he needs leave days to have a root canal done. So I said he should just save his days and I would throw out my signed leave form.
Now when I think about how tired I am and how much attention the house needs, I am toying with the idea of maybe still taking the day off. Hubby can take Honeybear to daycare, and I can have the day to springclean the house, without a baby needing me and also to get in an afternoon nap.
To say I am tired is not even describing the way I feel. The night feedings are really killing me slowly.
The good angel pops up on my right shoulder and asks me how can I? How can I have a free day and not want to spend it with Honeybear. I do want to. And I feel like if I am not going to work I should have him home with me. We can have a pajama day. I remember reading the little rhyme about cobwebs staying at bay while mama rocks baby. Spring cleaning could just wait.
I am still not decided. For now I stuck the leave form in my desk drawer. I can always withdraw it tomorrow if I come to work or hand it in on Monday if I decide to stay home.
What would you do?
