Rain, Rain, Go Away!! Never Come Back Until I say!
The Weather & A Quicky Post About The Woman At The Pool, & Ongoing Jealousy Brewing At Home!
(At least this one, won’t take a 1/2 hr. to read!)
Another rainy, icky, day. I can see the money (Money that I do not have, no less), flying out of my pocket as we speak, finding things to do (Got to do a post on this. Free and super affordable forms of entertainment for children, for such times as these).
I have this ‘big thing’ about staying cooped up inside too much. I get TOTAL cabin fever, that’s why I’m such a Spring/Summer fan, and with new twins, I MUST get out, no matter how long it may take to get the clan ready. It keeps my mood happy, my spirit energetic. Just keeps me feeling more like me.
Speaking of this subject, I met a woman last week with nearly 3 yr. old twin boys…VERY well behaved little men, might I add, standing there, holding each of mommy’s hands, I’m thinking, ‘Where can I place an order for 2 of those?’ 😆 Hopefully, I got two them right now, but she said to me, the most bizarre thing, I think I have ever heard. ‘This is the first time, I have ever been out alone with them’. I was thinking…’Yeah ok, that is normal’.
I know not everybody has to get out every day, like I try and do, but 1st time in 3 yrs. you took your sons out on your own? She must have a ton of nannies, or she has kept those babies locked up in prison (Home, I mean, which would turn into prison for any child at that point). Sheesh. I can only PRAY someone socializes these children, if not her.
Who knows maybe she’s got a husband who is at her daily disposal, to take them out. She had some form of help, as she had a 9 month old, at home she said. I didn’t question it. I took these girls out for fresh air, as soon as the weather hit the temperature, the Dr. told me I could walk them out in, which was 50 degrees, and that was 5 days old. Even took my daughter to the Museum for some mom/daughter time, the day after I got released from the hospital, so this type of behavior just baffles me!
As for us right now, I do know there are plenty of indoor activities that we can do as a family. But right now, I’m still in the ever so long phase, of admittedly, spoiling my daughter, because of all of the baby attention, and I still just feel so bad for her, as she fights to try and adjust. It’s been quite a struggle, and it’s worse when we are home. Every Time she calls for me, I have to go and grab a baby, and it seems like she isn’t getting as much of me as she needs at home. My son is at his father’s house still, until September 3rd, so he can’t even play games with her, while we are busy, you know?
The girls are now awake more, even more demanding of attention then before, and know how to get it, so it’s not easier, let’s just say that. And going out, getting her around friends and other children, is what helps, and on rainy days, the other children, are where the money goes…unfortunately. Looking forward to some nice, FREE, park days ahead, but until then, what is a guilty-feeling mother to do? I know she ‘loves’ the babies in her own way, she even says so, but it is very apparent, despite all past efforts, she’s still suffering inside, despite being better off long-run, which of course I KNOW, and can see..she at 5, cannot.
It’s gonna be a long Winter. I need to get rich, and get us all to Florida..FAST he he. I have gotten crazy odds on a lot of things that have happened in my life, mostly all bad, except for the twins, which was a VERY long shot, if you read my last blog post. Supposed to be impossible..HA, I say…Dr’s know nothing 😆 . So the hubster, definitely says I’m due, so maybe I’ll play this week! Like the commercial says ‘You never know’ right?
Whelp, my free time has been gobbled up today, and again no working out. I really need to get back into the swing of things.
Thanks for reading. To all my followers, I love each and every one of you! You’re the BEST!
