Ok, so I'm feeling like this blog just focuses on the happy, fun stuff. I don't want to give the impression that our lives here are perfect, or that it's all a breeze. 'Cause it ain't! I know I appreciate "mommy blogs" that are honest and talk about real life stuff. So I thought I'd write a little bit about some of the challenges we have here. Before I do, I just want to say, the happy fun stuff I post about is real. We have lots and lots of great times, and our lives are pretty darn good. There is a lot of love and laughter in our little household. But in the interest of keeping this blog "real"...
-I lose my patience
-I let E watch too much TV
-the cost of full time Day Care makes me cry
-I get annoyed when a mother who's husband goes away for few days refers to herself as a "single parent"
-I hate having to work full time, even though I should be grateful that I have a job
-I hate going to the playground and would really rather just stay in and read
-I feel really guilty that E is in Day Care 9 hours a day
-E can at times be defiant and not too nice to me
-E puts up so much fuss when I try to do her hair that I now take her to a beauty salon regularly to avoid the stress
-I worry that I'm not explaining adoption well enough to her
-I feel sad that I probably won't adopt again
-I feel like a loser because we live in a rented apartment, instead of owning a house or condo
-E still sleeps with me, and I like it, but miss being able to read in bed before going to sleep
-I forget to be grateful for all that we do have...
