"MAMMA" is what I am hearing as I post this. Lately my son has been battling nap time and bed time. He has learned to step onto a chair and crawl into bed (thanks to his big sissy), but he wants to do this over and over again. I have to quickly pull up the crib rail and tell him "night, night". Then it starts "MAMMA, MAMMA" ,as I head for the door he throws out his me's (what he calls his blankets) as a mother what do I do? I throw the me's back in bed, I then quickly shut the door and I hear the screaming. I feel sooooo quilty doing this, but I know he needs his naps, most days, and I need to have my Mommy time. I think in order to be a good mom I need a little time to myself, gather my thoughts, rest, scrapbook, read, watch a little T.V., workout, run, go for a walk, paint my nails and toe nails and anything else I see fit. Does this make me feel quilty? Yes, but I am a firm believer that moms need to take care of themselves in order to take of their family. So as I am ending this post my little boy is now quiet and I hope is drifting off to sleep. When he wakes up we will be playing outside, that is how I bribed him today "If you take a nap, we will play outside". I know when he gets up he will be in a much better mood and I will have gotten in my Mommy time.
