Last night my 2 (almost 3) year old daughter so articulately told me that she didn’t feel like we were spending as much time together having fun and playing. She actually told me she felt jealous. My heart sank, but I immediately knew what she meant.
Lately I’ve been so focused on well, just life stuff. Trying to get this website up, house hunting because we have to be out of our current place by the end of the month, family emergencies like my mom being in the hospital…. It seems like it’s been one thing after another. I was so glad that my baby girl felt comfortable enough to come to me and talk. I’m not ashamed to apologize to my child and today it has been all about her. We have been having a mother daughter day and it was needed for BOTH of us. I think I have missed our play time as much as she has.
Yeah being a mom can be busy but at the same time I think my little one helps me stay in balance. I could easily spend the whole day working; that’s just me. I’m so thankful for my baby girl and today I’m just enjoying being Mommy.
