To the 11 readers of this blog: Is it bad...
...that Cara points to the TV when she gets home from school? I love TV. I know a lot of people (include the American Academy of Pediatrics) believe that TV is very, very, very bad for children, and I see their point. There's a lot of crap out there. But, Cara likes Veggies Tales and Sesame Street DVDs. So is it really that bad? Especially when it means that I can cook dinner without a wailing manic clinging to my legs?
...that I spent 90 minutes in line for 4 outfits and a Halloween costume? In my defense, I was at a children's consignment sale (cheap clothes!), I was with my preggo BFF (baby chat!), and the Halloween costume was a tiger for $15 (true story: this morning, I asked Cara what she was going to be for Halloween. Her response: "Roooaaaarrr").
...that I exchanged two pairs of pants for me for an entire fall wardrobe for Cara? Really? Two pairs of pants = 18 baby items? I'm talking seven long sleeve t-shirts, one blue corduroy skirt, two pairs of jeans, two sets of pjs, a supercute jacket, two dresses, a pair of cords, and two pairs of leggings? Maybe I am buying pants that are too expensive. Or the Old Navy baby sale is just ridiculous.
...that I attended my first high school football game since I ended my coaching career and didn't miss it at all? Let me clarify: I miss my girls. I love them. Seriously. I blew them some kisses on my way out. But, coaching last year as a brand new mommy was REALLY HARD. I couldn't be anywhere as often as I needed to be, and I couldn't give anything 100% like I wanted to, so life was really frustrating. I appreciate my time now so much that I can't commit to anything. Not even a Bible study. I've been thinking about this a lot lately, and I would really like to join a Wednesday night Bible study. But it's like I just got out of a long term relationship, and I am afraid of commitment. I may need to just take the plunge on this one. Of all the people in the world, surely the ones in a Bible study would be understanding if I needed some space one week.
...that literally half of this list is about shopping? Um, yes, actually, that is bad.
