I’m sitting here listening to my girls play in the bathtub after a day dedicated to the never ending task of washing, folding, and putting away of the laundry. Steve and Frankie are away on a charter in North Carolina fishing for Tuna and Mahi, and I’ve just got word that they’ve pulled in some delicious dinner for us to enjoy over the next few weeks. So proud of my boys!
It’s been a good day.
It’s also been one of those days when the infamous “mom guilt” creeps in…you know if you know! I’m super tired after not sleeping well the past three days, I’ve been guilting myself over whether or not it’s selfish to end the day with a door dashed meal and guilty pleasure dessert while watching that new documentary on Britney Spears. (new-ish I guess – I’m always behind on these things!) or if I should end it strong and well, finishing the rest of the laundry (I’m SO close!) and getting a head start on organizing the game closet.
But I’m sure you can guess what won! So once I get these cuties out of the tub it’s a Wawa tuna sandwich and some dessert in front of the TV for me. And I’ll only feel *slightly* bad about it!
Mom guilt can be a silly thing, can’t it? It’s like we feel guilty for taking time to do what most normal people (without kids) do on a daily basis at the end of the day. I guess it’s a good problem to have!
So here’s to a relaxing night, a good nights sleep, and a tinge of mom guilt. (You should join me from your couch!)
