Just One of Those Weekends

I try to keep this blog about just me. I try not to gab on and on about married life and kids. I am proud of the fact that I am a mom and I am proud that I have been married for 13 years. I am proud of being a cancer survivor. I am proud of all that I have gone through and everything that has made me who I am. But this blog is to be separate from all of that. I want to just be ME. Sometimes you need a place to just be you and not all the things that you are labeled as. I am not just a mom. I am not just a wife. I am not labeled by the cancer I had. It has changed me. I have grown and learned a lot by the things that have happened in my life. Good or bad, it has all affected who I have become.

Still I need a place where I am nothing more and nothing less than Sandi. Yes, that is right. I just referred to myself in the third person. haha This weekend though it was all about being a mom. Easter started off good. I cooked and baked. I had everything tip top. Then my 9 year old went into her room and puked all over the floor. *sigh* So I got out the rug cleaner and cleaned. I scrubbed. I washed up. I cooked more. Then the baby REFUSED loudly to take a nap. Screaming, crying, fussing, yelling. So I just decided no big deal. I won't make her nap. Big mistake because she decided sleeping at night was also a bad thing and chose to cry and fuss until I allowed her to lie in my bed for awhile at about 2:00 a.m. She loved that and smiled and giggled immediately. She dried her eyes because her tantrum got her what she wanted. I spoil her. I know it. I have spoiled her I should say. She is 17 months and a miracle baby. Read my other blog if you want to know why! (Pregnant With Cancer) Anyway she has figured me out. So this afternoon she doesn't want to nap either. I put her down and have spent the afternoon shushing the older kids who are on vacation for one more day. YEAH for school tomorrow! I want the baby to sleep and the other kids make it hard because they fight, yell, giggle etc...while I am trying to put the baby down for a nap. I shush them. I beg. I freak out. Still my shushing inevitably wakes up the baby. So there is NO getting away from it today. No. Right now I am all mom.

p.s. Where is the Calgon when you need it?

Calgon usually arrives right about the time the kids are tucked into bed for the night.

Calgon? What about whiskey?

I feel your pain though. I love and hate those days. You feel needed and wanted, which is nice...but I'v also been know to turn into the Hulk!

Sandi said...

Ha! Yes TentCamper I want whiskey. I am heading out on the 25th to probably do just that. It's too far away =/

Southern Sage said...

hehe I'm with TC! I am also heading out the 25th to do just that!
It seems the parent often overtakes all the other parts of the person.
Send the Calgon if you find any!

Hah, I had a few days like that last week, except replace kids vomiting and crying with back in immense pain.

Hopefully everything is better and everyone is feeling well. :)
