I am feeling a bit better this morning, after finally having a good night’s sleep (as good as it gets with a 2 year old in the bed). No work calls in the middle of the night for hubby and Honeybear was either sleeping on Papa or decently in the middle of the bed (because I was not disturbed).
Yesterday when I arrived at home, all ideas of taking it easy flew out of my head. I settled Honeybear with snacks and Smurfs and started cooking. I had to bath Honeybear early because he forgot the difference between the toilet and his pants. I guess at only 2.5, this is to be expected sometimes. As soon as hubby arrived home I whisked everyone out to do some shopping (our Checkers is open until 8pm). I am a control freak and I wanted the bulk of the shopping to be done before the weekend (we are having a birthday party for hubby)
The cold is not gone yet, but I feel energised to get my act together. Tonight I have to sort our cupcake boxes. I have an idea for carrot cupcakes….need to work out the cream cheese frosting, so if anyone has a good one, please send it my way.
I like organising things, so if I was not doing my current job, I may have become an event planner.
I hope the weather remains nice for hubby. He deserves a treat and day about him. I forget sometimes, exactly how overwhelming and forceful my personality can be. It takes over and does not always give you a chance, in a bad way. You would never say it on first impressions, and that is what fools most people.
On the fighting with hubby front: We are still doing fine. Talking the short talks as needed and making sure we are on the same page. I try to let things go and hubby understands too, I am not as laid back he is, so for me it is very difficult. It also helps that we have a plan laid for the next month and the end of month treat (our 6th wedding anniversary). Maybe it is time we actually went out with just each other and had an adult outing without Honeybear. Since Honeybear arrived, we have had only two outings without him.
I do not love my child any less, but I think Mama and Papa also need to have a moment. We need to spend time taking care of us too.
