Sometimes I worry that I’m going to be a really bad mom. The worry goes beyond just the regular will I forget to turn off the stove stuff, or will I still be able to mom and write stuff. Tonight I worry about just being able to put aside my own needs and putting those of someone else above mine.
Since today was my first day back at work after a hellish week off (between the short story birth and my dad, it wasn’t much fun), I decided that I needed a little spoiling tonight. I came home (early) and immediately jumped into the pajamas. Then I proceeded to make homemade chicken noodle soup (comfort food) while watching Dawson’s Creek. After that I plugged into the stream of Jeff Tweedy’s Sunken Treasure DVD (which I cannot wait to buy tomorrow) and ate the second half of my Oreo cookie Blizzard. It’s been utterly delightful.
And really can you do that shit when you have kids? Because what if my kids don’t care about their daddy’s new DVD?
