Today my oldest turned 10 years old! I almost cannot believe it. Where in the world did a decade go? Today was definetly different. She tried waking me up at 7am wondering where her gifts were and I was too sore to even move. I had a heating pad on my breasts, and an ice pack on my armpit.
This whole weekend I wanted to devote to her and I feel as a mother I let her down. She went to her grandparents, had a fun sleepover, stayed up, ate junk food…and I really had nothing to do with any of it. I realize how lucky I am to have a wonderful family to fill
in for me while I’m on the Injured Reserved List…but as a mother…at the core of being a mom…I felt like crap.
This is my baby, and it’s my job to do it all.
At the end of the night I told her I Ioved her dearly and I hoped next birthday I could make it up to her. She agreed.
