I haven’t written a post in over a month. What have I been doing? you ask. Well, I have been teaching preschool, working out, trying to get this house sold, doing homework with kids (occasionally), and taking the kids to their activities. Sounds exciting, right? It is, on a certain level.
Frisay after school I was frustrated with the kids because they were all whining and complaining. I decided that the best way to avoid all of this drama was to go and work out. I went to the gym and had a revelation….it was Friday, Wilson’s birthday weekend and I wanted to enjoy being with the kids. I picked them up from child watch with a renewed spirit. I told them that I loved them and they were more important to me than working out, more important than selling the house, more important than work and more important then anything I could think of. Then I informed them that it was Wilson’s birthday weekend and we were going to have fun!
We went straight to walmart and bought Wilson’s favorite snacks (within reason that I would buy, of course). We bought ice cream, sprite, and popcorn. The. We went to Red Box and let wilson pick the movie. We were ready for a fun weekend together.
Truth be told, I miss the kids while they are at school. I hate seeing them only in the afternoon when we have have home world and dinner and bedtime. I am very thankful that I was able to change my mood and mind set for the weekend. It was worth it!
