Linking up with Darci, April, Christina and Natasha for Five on Friday!
The pool is opening this weekend! I’m excited not only to get Abbie in the water more, but also to have it as a workout option for myself. Swimming is a great low impact workout for me, and it’ll be a nice addition to everything I’m already doing.
So remember that post from yesterday about Mommy Guilt? Totally got hit with it, big time, yesterday afternoon. Some days are just harder than others, I guess. I just want to be my best self all the time for Abbie, but it’s hard. I constantly worry I’m not doing enough, and that I’m not a good enough role model for her. I just want her to be proud of me, and proud to be my daughter. I want her to see value in herself and me. I was just having a little bit of a rough time with it yesterday.
The playground is ALWAYS a good idea. Girlfriend loves the swing, slides, running around…basically everything about it.
I ate waaaay too much yesterday as a result of above Mommy guilt, and I’m feeling really sluggish today. Goes to show you – you really are what you eat. Hopefully I can have a lighter, cleaner day today and get back to feeling more like my normal self.
Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend celebrating with your family and friends. We don’t have anything special planned, but I do want to get the grill going for the first time this year and I definitely have corn on the cob on the grocery list. Here’s hoping Abbie loves it just as much as I do….and doesn’t take after her dad in this respect. Even after three years of marriage, I still don’t understand why he doesn’t like some things.
What are you up to this holiday weekend?
So sorry about the mommy guilt! I hope you get to have a relaxing guilt free weekend and enjoy some pool time!
Thanks – we did!
Well my crazy husband doesn’t eat any type of nut or any rice. It makes cooking very difficult. Who hates rice???
WHAT? And I thought mine was crazy…but he does love rice. But he doesn’t like mac and cheese. Seriously…it’s nuts.
