Yay! We did it!! We made it to Friday….let the weekend mania begin.
This is the ONE weekend I don’t really have much planned for. It’s weird not being busy on a weekend. So Sad.
So we go to work all week, body-itch and complain about how hard life is (even though we are lucky to have a job), how everyone wants a piece of us (wow- you’re important. People actually need you!) and how there are ‘not enough hours in the day’….only to get to the weekend and do the same thing BUT on our time. What gives?
For those with little kids, can I get an Amen for weekend birthday parties you can leave your kids at?:) That is the only time you get ‘free’ guilt-free babysitting, your kids gets free food and entertainment, loot bags and THANK you for it.<——help your kids make more friends because buying a birthday present is totally worth it!
Sometimes, I go to these parties and see parents who feel bad leaving. They are literally holding on to their 5-year olds ” Don’t worry, Saige, Mommy will be right here waiting for you’. Why? WHY? WHYYYYY? Why are you feeling bad? It’s not prison. The fact that they are being stalked by you is scary. IF you do not feel comfortable leaving them with their friends and responsible adults for a birthday party, then maybe they shouldn’t be there at all- just sayin’
I had a super clingy second-child….and it wasn’t always easy to let go. But you can’t do it unless you start. You can’t succeed unless you try. You can’t raise a socially independent and responsible child if you are an overbearing clingy parent.
This weekend, go and have crazy hot steaming sex with that special someone, go shopping and get retail therapy, go for a massage, make non-kraft dinner, go for a wine painting class, read a book, blog, study, meet someone new, do something exciting, do something!!! Life will not wait for you.
Simply put: Birthday parties = Mani-Pedi day for me
