It has been an incredibly busy 2 weeks and we just finished off with a weekend that was CRAZY!
I am SO exhausted!
I haven't been this tired in a long time. I would like to curl up on the couch, cover up with a cozy blanket and veg all day...not making any decisions, not dealing with anyone, not worrying about anything at all!
But, I learned a long time ago that those days are past! My kids need me to stay emotionally PLUGGED IN! Even 15 years later.
So, I can proclaim it Pajama Day and lay on the couch if I want to, but as for the checking out emotionally and not making decisions, that causes lots of anxiety at my house.
My children not only need me physically present, but they do best when I intentionally choose to be emotionally present as well! In the long run, it turns out best for all of us if I stay plugged in emotionally - they feel safe so behavior is good thus I can continue to take care of me a bit!
So, Pajama Day it is! I have got the schedule in place. Food planned and prepared. A list of movies we can count as educational. And blankets ready for everyone! Staying Plugged In and Filling Myself Up!
Don't forget to take care of you too...Remember you are NOT alone!
