Yet another mommy mess-up on my part.
I had a very busy day yesterday and told my youngest that even though I couldn’t spend time with her earlier in the day, we would read a book together before bed.
I arrived home about 7:00, ate dinner, watched a movie with my husband and then went upstairs to find said child waiting for me, book in hand.
Did I do the right thing?
No. I told her that I would read it to her later and I came downstairs to finish typing the CVS deals for the blog. It only took 20 minutes, but when I returned to her room she was sound asleep. (It didn’t help that she woke up at 4:30 a.m. on the day of her birthday party.)
Lesson learned: Choose family first.
So if something you are expecting is a little late, just know I am doing something a little more important at that moment.
