Push over Mom

I've realized something, I'm a push over mom. I'm trying not to be, but that little boy of mine has me wrapped around his finger. Take our mornings for example, he wants to stay home with me. He keeps whining about it and there are times when I'm so tempted to say the heck with work, I'm taking a mental health day and staying home with my little guy. Of course, then I remember I have bills to pay and a child to feed and being the responsible adult/parent wins. There are times when I want that responsible adult/parent to go on vacation.

On the other hand, I think I'm making progress with my budget. It's only been a year that I've been working on it, I'm a little slow with some things. oopppssss.... I guess it's better late than never. At least, that is my story and I'm sticking to it.

Life, take 2

I've looked over my last blog entry and boy, was it a little depressing. However, there are times when that is exactly how I feel and I'm trying not to apologize for my feelings any more. I've started reading several blogs/pages and they all say the same thing, you need to be honest with yourself. Sometimes, I just put a smile on my face and pretend everything is ok, because that is easier than dealing with the issues. But, that is not a realistic way to go through life.

Anyway, on a lighter note, we had a birthday party for Drew this past Friday and boy, was it a hoot. That little guy is something, let me tell you. I am so blessed to have him in my life and to have the opportunity to be a parent. It's amazing. Of course, I know my mother is up in heaven laughing hysterically at the things I'm going through with Drew. She always said revenge would be grandkids. :-)
