I sit here on a lovely warm afternoon. Hubby is at work, Honeybear is sitting across from me watching Barney and I am sitting with my laptop. I wonder to myself, does this make me a horrible mama? I should be outside playing with him. However, I am feeling a little tired and Honeybear did ask to watch Barney.
I feel so much pressure to be a superwoman, but I know I do not have it in me to be that superwoman who gets it all right. Most times I feel like I am getting it wrong.
It is long weekend this weekend and I am looking forward to a bit of downtime. I figure it will be OK to have Honeybear running around tomorrow. He did have quite a bit of outside time already at school.
I was thinking about all those parents who do not use car-seats, or even seat belts. What are they thinking? Our country has such a high rate of road fatalities, what are they thinking? Do they not see the news, read the papers, the internet? I just cannot see what reason someone would have to drive a car with a child who is not safely restrained. I see it at Honeybear’s day-care every day. I am going to sound like a snob here but I will say it anyway.
The kids at this day-care come from homes were the parents are well off, they have had the benefit of good education, they can afford cars and some get pretty fancy. I would expect this part of society to have a bit more care because they actually know better. They know what can happen and they still leave their kids to hang out windows and stand on seats while they drive. I just cannot understand it one bit.
Let me get of my soapbox.
It is Monday morning now, and I did not post the above last week. The weekend was a bit too busy for my liking, but there were things that had to be done. It was one of my headache weekends (I get the most horrendous headaches sometimes). Good thin g hubby was home to help out and make dinner.
I have finally convinced hubby that a birthday do for him, is a good idea. It is no thing big or fancy, just your typical Pretoria braai. (not the bring and braai kind, I hate those!). I like this kind of thing, so I have a few ideas.
Let me be off to start my Monday (I will only end up posting this later so do not be confused)
This is my 100th post. Whatever that is worth!
