Funnily enough, I’ve felt this struggle during the past year-and-a-half. Those feelings usually bubble up when I’m trying to juggle several things at once (like a new puppy in the midst of everything else) or after several days home with sick kids (which has happened all too often this year).
And so it was on Monday, when H#1 was home from school again with the latest illness and after a morning of the same-ol-same-ol, but with a new puppy thrown into the mix, when I said to my mom,
“I feel like I should be doing something.“
What did I mean? I don’t know. Some fabulous craft. Or outing. Or playdate. Something stimulating. Or exciting. Or amazing. Or. Or. Or…Something.
To which she replied,
“You are doing something. You’re doing something you used to pay someone else a lot of money to do.”
Indeed. Thanks Mom. I needed that.
