A Breakdown in my Babygroup Class

Today was my babygroup class… I was so super tired and stressed. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed or I was getting sick or something. I just felt very off. So in the two hours before I had to leave for class I talked myself into going:

‘You have already missed so many classes already, just go you lazy bum’

And then I talked myself out of going:

‘You are tired, listen to your body, if you push yourself you might get more sick, honor where you are. You are not lazy just because you want to stay home.’

I kept flipping back and forth and then finally kicked my own butt and went to class. My hair was in a ponytail, I didn’t put on any makeup, I just showed up and sat down. I thought I was ok, until my instructor asked how I was doing. And to my horror I started crying. My dad wasn’t doing well, I was tired, worn out, sick or something and depressed because I STILL wasn’t pregnant. Anyways after I was handed a box of Kleenex and cleaned up class started and all was well. It ended up being a great class and I was mostly happy I went.

I got in the car to start the ride home and I could tell my Little Cricket was about to pass out. It is a 20 minute drive and I knew if he fell asleep then I wouldn’t be able to get him back down for his nap when we got home. So I did something I never do. I handed him my phone, I rolled down the windows and I blasted Christmas music and sang at the top of my lungs. With all this stimulation I managed to keep my Little Cricket miraculously awake. And we both got to crash for a nice long nap. Everything looks so much better after a nap.

No better pair than you and a nap.
