Bryan had an extra trip to take this weekend to a conference heâ€™s speaking at, so I have an extended time alone with the kids. I donâ€™t usually complain about his travel schedule because, truth be told, the kids and I keep so busy while heâ€™s gone that the time goes quickly. But when these extra trips come during the weekends, I go a little insane.
We were well occupied all day today until after naps. By then I was so burned out I didnâ€™t have the energy to think of anything interesting to do, like going to the park or playing a game. So we ended up watching two movies in a row.
I. am. a terrible mother.
I thought watching a movie would buy me some time to read a book or surf the internet. But no. Ruthie will no longer allow me to do these things, even if I am sitting right next to her while she is watching the movie. I must put everything down and watch it with her. Do you KNOW how many times I have watched her movies?
Argh. My brain is turning to mush. I can only imagine what hers is turning into.
