Yesterday I woke up sneezing uncontrollably. Two hours after I popped an allergy pill, I realized that what I really should've been popping was Wellness. I didn't feel good. Later in the day the boys wanted to go swimming. They wanted to ride bikes to the pool. I complied because I knew it would be easier on all of us to get out of the house, cool down in the water, pedal as much excess energy out as possible. A minute into our ride they started bickering about who would lead the way. I said, "Guys, you know - I don't feel good today. I'm not up for these little fights today." Theo looked at me so compassionately and said, "You can take the day off, Mom. I'll take care of me and Sully."
I'm in no hurry to rush my kids away from me. There.
That doesn't mean that I am not exhausted all the way down to my toe bones and then some, because I am.
