Yesterday I sent out ten resumes. I was pretty proud of myself, and thinking it was the right time. Literally,ten minutes after said resumes had been sent, and a post on face book had been made…the school nurse called. Isaiah had a stomach ache, and had been in twice, could I pick him up ? Was that a sign ? Coincidence ? It makes me a little wary to get a job right now. I might be rushing it. Whether his stomach ache was a virus, or brought on by stress…it was there. He is doing a great job with school, and I am very proud of him. But my job here, at home, is not done yet. I will trust my gut on this one.
Adam won the election for ninth grade vice president ! His first cross country meet is today. We are excited to see him run, he has put a lot of work into it.
These kids….I have to get Belle a new pair of glass, like right now ! And Sidney is preparing to move out this week. There is never a dull minute !
It’s true, I am guilty of being bored at home, and wanting to do my own thing for various reasons, but the truth is…being a mom is the most important thing to me. Giving my kids what they need is my main priority. They are not babies, I can’t just give them a bottle, and put them in fresh jammies, and call it a day. I have to give them real food, nourishment for their spirits, and encouragement for their souls. They won’t always be here with me, they are going to have to navigate this world on their own. It’s a big job preparing them for that. Sometimes, I want a do over, a time machine that could take me back to the chaos of them being 10, 5, 2 1/2, and 6 months. My flesh wants that, because they needed me for everything. But in my heart, I know we are in a special time right now, they don’t need me for everything, but hopefully ….they want me. Life lessons.
