Mother's Day Promises Part Deux
Last year on Mother's Day, I made a list of promises that I have been pretty good about keeping. So here is this year's. Enjoy!
I promise to enjoy the little things more and not stress about what's out of my control.
I promise to exhibit patience with L.E. as we try to potty-train her.
I promise not to complain about watching Toy Story or Finding Nemo for the millionth time. But I will do everything in my power to not watch Hop again. Ever.
I promise not to get upset when L.E. prefers her daddy to me.
I promise to let go of my mom-guilt more and more.
I promise to keep running, not because I'm training for something specific but because I'm training for not dying young.
I promise to wear a bathing suit this summer and not be reduced to a pool of self-loathing.
I promise to be the best mom and wife I can be because my family deserves the very best of me.
I promise L.E. will be an only child. And I promise to not be apologetic about it
I promise to try to eat more salads and less french fries.
I promise to not brag about the super awesome amazing bracelet I got for Mother's Day from T.
(OK, I can't keep ALL of these, right?)
Happy Mother's Day, everyone. Thank you for continuing to read this and share. Love you all.
