Derek's feeble attempt at a smile!
I was so tempted today to get frustrated because I "seemingly" didn't get anything done. I had several things on my "to do" list and only accomplished one or two of them. The baby was extra fussy because he is catching a cold, Derek has a cold and needed Mommy extra today, Chad needed me to do some things for him. My things just didn't get done, and I was starting to feel down-hearted. As I was relating some of my feelings to Chad because I was having a hard time even getting dressed because the baby needed me, he said, "There will be other days for you to make a menu and go to the grocery store. There will never be another today for you to spend with this baby." What a breath of fresh air! I can relax. My baby needs me!
Ten years from now my children will not remember that I didn't get everything done on my "to do" list. They will only remember that I was crabby because I was frustrated. That is not the kind of mommy I want to be. I thank the Lord for a husband who "took the pressure off."
