Babysitting a Puddle

Wednesday, October 12, 2005

I am not a good stay-at-home mom. I am a great mom, but it's the stay-at-home bit that makes me edgy. I am on maternity leave and will be going back to work (kind of) after Christmas. I always have to be doing something. Sitting and watching t.v. makes me fidgety. I can only sit and read in the evening. I get tired of the "eat, sleep, activity, yourself" bit. I am enjoying my baby, don't get me wrong, but I really think I'm a better mom, person, when I work and then spend my quality time with my four year old and baby. To each her own. Debates on the topic. It works for me. I love my job, I love my family. I work to live, not live to work. I have a good balance. The balance is out of whack right now, being strictly at home.

I took my 4 year old to swimming lessons tonight and on the drive home we saw truck lights ahead on the road. There were Department of Transportation trucks and signs flashing. All the rain over the weekend had flooded the road a bit and they were parked there to warn drivers. What are they doing, mom? I explain. So, they are going to babysit the puddle overnight. Yup, I guess they are. So maybe staying at home isn't so bad after all.
