On missing out

I really wanted to go out tonight. Just like a few weeks ago when I really wanted to go to Toronto for a conference.

I'm at a time in my life where I'm needed at home. Whatever things we did getting to this place, it doesn't matter now. We're here and my little girl needs me home to fall asleep at night. She won't always but she does now.

Most days I'm fine with being home. It's nice feeling needed and being able to provide comfort to my kids. But some days I feel trapped and I want to run away.

I need to remind myself that this is temporary. It's a phase. That the kids are young and need their mom and that's okay. I may be missing out on things now but I have all sorts of time to go out and do things just for me. In the meantime I may get a little crabby about missing events but it's not forever.

  1. I hear you Kamerine! I am still needed at home and my kids are teenagers lol! I was feeling the same when they were younger. Wish I had a blog about to talk about it back then. Make sure you get some ME time even if it's just a few hours a week:)

  2. I did miss you last night. This will pass, and then you'll be footloose and fancy free. :D

    1. We'll have to have another get together. If we have enough of them, there will definitely be one I can make!
