Chris and I had a tiff. It started b/c he was talking about doing something fun and when I showed concern he was like "well so-and-so's wife lets him". At the time it really hurt my feelings because I hate being compared to "other cooler" wives but after I thought about it more I sort of found it funny. It reminded me when I was a little kid and had to do chores or homework and I was mouthing off to my mom "well Sarah's mom doesn't make her do homework".
I'm not mad at Chris... I feel a lot like he does too. Even compared to other friends who have children we have it pretty hard. 3 kids in 2 yrs w/one on the spectrum doesn't allow for much personal time. Sometimes I don't even have time to shower, much less really just do something fun for myself. We just have to remember that this won't last forever and our family is growing quick. We can't look at what everyone else has but rather focus on what we have and find joy in the journey!
In a funny note for a "make up" present Chris topped the cute list! Since I'm in marketing and Chris knows locally my favorite logo is the Sonoma Ranch logo (it is a local development and golf course) so he stopped by the pro-shop and picked me up a cute shirt w/that logo embroidered. It is a golf shirt and I don't golf but I think it was really thoughtful how he remembered I like that logo and the shirt is nice. Maybe I need to pick up golfing, b/c I have so much extra time ;) Either way I have a new cute shirt!
