Did I forget that today was spirit day at school and my kid was not appropriately dressed? No
Did I send my kid to school without her library books? No
Did I take her tooth from under her pillow but forget to leave money? No
I went home after work and did the dishes. #momfail big time!
Yes- this is my version of a #momfail. Because tonight is Thursday. And Thursdays are sacred.
Thursdays are for yoga or drinks or rock climbing or whatever I want. Thursdays are NOT for cleaning or organizing or worrying or DISHES.
I planned on going to a yoga class until my husband told me that he was going to grill for dinner. And because there is nothing more that I love than spending time with my family over a yummy meal, I eagerly came home after work for a juicy steak and some fun family time.
I walked into the house to find my husband sitting on the couch with my daughter. No pajamas. No bottle. No dinner prepared for her.
No yummy smells wafting from the grill!
I was fuming. So, what better way to show him that I am mad than to angrily do the dishes. And clean the bottles. And make her bottle. And prepare and feed her dinner. And get her ready for bed. And then put her to bed. And then clean the kitchen.
Anyone else ever find themselves spitefully cleaning? It is a weird phenomenon. And not at all satisfying. But at least I don’t have to clean up later…..
Stay tuned for how I turned this night around….
