It's OK to Cry
Sometimes we moms have a lot on our minds and we don't even realize it. Are they really sick? Are they having an appendicitis? Or do they need to poop? Should I try to go to the gym and stay in shape or should I rest and put up my varicose vein laden leg (I say leg because I only have them on the right! Weird.) Should I make a big dinner and will I have energy to clean up the dishes? What if I don't get around to vacuuming...ever? Will _____, who dropped by today, judge me forever as a bad housekeeper because I hadn't been able to get past the medicine droppers/hug me mommy/poopy diapers to do some chores today? It's funny how all these almost subconscious thoughts can really take a toll...so today when my doctor told me to take some Sudafed for what I thought was a potentially hearing impairing ear infection, I cried...because it had been building up. And now I feel better...It's OK to cry sometimes.
