It's been an eye-opening couple of days At some point in the last 48 hours, I have felt one of these feelings. [sometimes 5 or 6 within the same thought]
I had one of those "the grass is greener on the other side" moments. You know, where you get to step out of your normal everyday life, and do something completely different than usual for a while.
It made me realize that I LOVE my everyday life. I love my fixer-upper of a house. I love that my biggest complaint with my husband is that he lets Emma stay up later than usual...because he wants to hang out with her. I love that my new son wakes up in the middle of the night, and I am the only one that can really give him what he needs. I love that I get to stay at home with my children, like my mom did with me. I love that one by one, my best friends are slowly moving back home (or close enough). I love that I live less than 5 minutes from both my parents & brother. I love that one day, my daughter will find someone like her daddy. I love that Dean is my little guy. I love that I get to experience the other side of life, so I can realize how sweet I really have it.
No more complaining about getting up in the middle of the night. Thank God I was lucky enough to get pregnant with him in the first place.
No more complaining about the dirt on my floors. How hard is it to vacuum? And I'm the one that wanted hardwood floors. Shouldn't I be thankful I found a house that had them hiding underneath the carpet?
No more complaining about this, that, and the other. And no more jealousy.
Get over it Lauren. Go hug your kids & kiss your incredible husband.
