Been a while
I know it has been a while I apologize. Not only to you, but myself. It is a commitment of mine to try to keep my blog updated cause I don't really journal other than this or scrapbook. I have the desire to scrap book, but not the space.
Anyways the topic on my mind is competitive mommy hood. I take Hunter every week to library group. He absolutely loves it and claps when we pull into the parking lot. They say rhymes, sing and dance, read a story, and then run around and play with each other. What's not to love?!
The mom's that show me up! Yes I am a little competitive so I am probably a little extra sensitive(yes I know it is all silly and doesn't matter in the long run. Oh I am embarrassed even talking about it.)Anyways, these mother's have a preschool curriculum going on for their children my goodness. Most aren't even a year and half and already know their whole alphabet.
Hunter grasps things so readily, but the alphabet never occurred to me. While they have their whole day planned out I just know that we both need a nap cause I am running on no sleep due to working at night.
I felt so guilty when I realized all the stuff I had not been teaching Hunter. I want to be the best mother as possible and not feel like he was raised by other people.
Then I look back at some of our pictures and remind myself that Hunter knows he is loved and sure is enjoying life.
I guess the alphabet and counting will come in its own time with a little help. I just need to breathe.... Phew! I feel better till next week. lol.
