My Monday Musings
Just a few random things that have been on my mind the last week or so...some may sound like complaints and that's okay to, cause if I can't complain here, where can I do it?
People that won't make a big deal about special things/events/happenings in your life but expect you to jump over the moon for them. This really annoys me, it's like when something great happens to you they are ho-hum but if the same thing were to happen to them they act like it is the first time and everyone should recognize. It seems petty and I can be the bigger person...but honestly? Most of the time I don't want to be the bigger person. It's a role I've had to play my whole life.
Toddlerhood...I thought it was suppose to be sweet. And many days it is but there are some days that tear me down in ways I didn't know possible. I had no qualms about motherhood being hard. I wasn't someone that needed a child to complete me, and I wasn't fooled into thinking it would be easy. It is easily the hardest job I have ever had and I don't get a break from it. But on bad tantrum days? I feel like I've fallen down a hole chasing a white rabbit...
When I tell people we are expecting a little girl, the response is totally different than when we told people we were expecting a boy. Each and every time. It's like they are more giddy. Why aren't boys something to be giddy over? I was ecstatic when I found out Spencer was a boy!
Well that's all I got for today. Stay tuned, I hope to continue this Monday Musings bit every week.
