Do you ever have days...

When you know that as a mother you have done a great job. I had one of those days yesterday. There was no yelling at each other, no grabbing, just a tiny bit of drama crying. We went over the alphabet and Bridget went to ice skating. A good day.

But then, I wake up the next day and think that I don't want to do that again. I am a bit selfish with my life I guess. I think I should have time for me, so I take it. Usually on Thursdays. Bridget goes to preschool until 2 on Thurs. and I take Becca to Stacy. Then I do whatever I want. Sometimes I go home and clean a little and scrapbook, sometimes I go to an exercise class, sometimes (well, most times) I go shopping. I usually feel a bit guilty over this, but when I don't do this, I am so cranky over the week-end.

Tomorrow is Friday, and I actually didn't finish my shopping today. So the girls will come with me to finish tomorrow. I can't believe they are mine when it comes to shopping, they are really bad at it. I hope it is just their age.

They'll get better with age. Have you tried giving them their own money to spend (winkwink)? =)

I think it's great you make time for yourself! Don't feel guilty...taking time for yourself is a good thing. You should always take time out for yourself...it makes you a better mommy! Mommy's need time and love too!
