Yesterday was my Birthday.
As a way to treat myself I decided to be a bad mom.
What does that mean? Well I didn't go out and get hammered or go crazy in a grocery store.
I just took it easy.
Instead of running on the rigid schedule I usually keep for me and baby:
read a story
work on a skill
walk to park
hang in coffee shop waiting for Daddy's train
Daddy time (Mommy alone time)
I decided to throw the schedule out and just have fun and do whatever we felt like doing.
Funny thing is I thought I was going to be a bad mom and my son would not develop properly if I didn't do everything everyone said I have to do every day.
In letting it all go I found out that I'm missing out on all the fun of being a Mom and really experiencing my child. All the wonderful spontaneous moments that come with the territory.
I'm still going to do all the things you need to do for your child. But slowed down. Make more playtime and more time to savor this moment in our lives.
