My oldest girl, who struggles with ADHD had an amazing week! She got all five of her daily assignments done before I got home from work on Friday and had three more done shortly after I got home from work on Saturday, so we, us three girls, had a spontaneous makeover n selfie night!
Ok well, one with the boy too just cuz he loves his Momma!
There are like 50 more but I won’t bore you. It kills me how stunning my girls are becoming. They both have eyes for days! This thing where they are starting to want to wear makeup is both fun and terrifying for me. It is fun to watch them grow up, but it makes me feel so old at the same time. It also makes me question how much and when to let them, and makes me scared of the next level…boys.
All that aside, I live for nights like this, when everyone is feeling good, getting their stuff done and off our shoulders and when I am able to put my worries aside for a few hours to just have fun with my kids and not THINK.
Today I got to sleep in. It wears on a person to always have to be the one to wake up early and drag everyone else out of bed, be hated, and then have to leave before anyone else, so Sundays are my day to develop a lasting relationship with my bed. Sigh… I’m sitting in it right now feeling sad that I’ll have to leave it too early on my second day off tomorrow. But I digress. We slept in, got ready for the day, my boy made us all PB&Js, packed water and oranges, granola bars and pickles (So we wouldn’t have to spend money.) and we went out to the Earth Day celebration at the park.
I ran into a friend who invited us to a BBQ. I have to admit I’ve been isolating and it was a little awkward to be in the presence of people again. I haven’t been going to church and I’ve been poor, sick and depressed. It felt good to get fed and be social. If I had to hang out with anyone, I’m glad it was this friend. She’s one of the least pretentious or judgmental people I know. The kids have a lot of fun with her kids too.
I still don’t know how I’m gonna get everything payed, how long I’ll have in this home we’ve made, but for today I think I’m just gonna be thankful .
