Parenting Teamwork

So the last night I get home and realize out of the past four nights the baby has been asleep when I get home and I start feeling bad that I am not doing enough when it comes to raising him, that I am not there enough, that I am in a sense slacking …

I get in my mopey mood where I feel like a bad mom and that I don’t do enough for him.

I Needed My Cat to Teach Me Not to Stress…

So I spent the better part of my day looking for my lost cat … again.  As if my days aren’t filled with enough between work, school, baby and household chores now my cat got out again…UGH! So here I am stressing all day about him being lost outside (keep in mind he’s a spoiled indoor cat) and that it is cold and he hasn’t eaten.

I get home from work and we decided to go around the neighbor on one last attempt to try and find him before the rain starts coming down harder… Continue reading
