Mommy Guilt...

Is it wrong that, for the past 2 Tuesdays, I have paid to take my kids to MDO, only to turn around and pay to go to the pool and relax?

Is it unthinkable that I would find it more enjoyable to go to the pool without my kids rather than with them?

Is it wrong that I covet those 10 beautiful minutes of adult swim while I am there, even though I know my own little munchkins are just heartbroken when they have to get out of the pool?

Is it a bad sign that I hide every iota of pool evidence before I pick the girls up, and fear the possible revelation of my actions? Is it worse when I cringed today as Sassy asked me, "Were you at home, mama?" Ugh, just stab.me.in.the.heart, why don't you?

Is it disdainful that I am already gearing up for a little pool-side R & R next Tuesday??

It's water therapy; doctor's orders.

No. It's cheaper than therapy. You will be a better Momma this way!!! A little R&R goes a LONG way towards patience with kiddo's later =)

You should read my friend Stephanie (across a gypsy flat road)'s post on "what I've learned", SO good for perspective! It blew my mind this morning thinking about it...and I don't even have kids yet! HA!

Happy Thursday, sweet friend! =)
