Today is the 10th day in my heavy-duty commitment to get up every morning and be in charge of my kids, whether Bill is here or not (right now, he's not). The results shine, both of my kids show in their own way that this is working for them.
Still not a surprise to anyone, this has been a giant struggle for me. After Bill and I hung up from the session with our consultant in which she told me in no uncertain terms I needed to be up when kiddos arise, I burst into tears. It is just so hard for me.
Today, I got a tiny gift from the universe (or the legislature however you see it). Day light savings time. I got a whole hour of extra sleep. Manna from heaven for my tired, aching body. I "slept in," yet breakfast is started and children are still sleeping and I have a few precious moments to share my thoughts with you.
I can do this.
