- school for kiddo (Lets call it a combo of sick days and winter break.)
- food- both eating and had to toss a ton because I had taken out a bunch from the freezer for the week and then it went to waste.
- hugging and snuggling the kiddo because I really didn't want him to get this.
My incredible husband picked up the slack.
I know what you are thinking. This isn't really giving UP something. Not exactly but I did LEARN that I love to control. (OK I knew that already but it was demonstrated to me.) Monday and Tuesday there was zero way I could have helped with anything. And I truly didn't care. Come Wednesday I started to make little 'suggestions' about things that could be done. And I realized...did it REALLY matter? Even if it didn't get done, what would change?
I get stressed when things don't get 'done' or done MY way. But I gave up my agenda this week partly because I had no choice and later because it really didn't matter!
It also demonstrated to me how I tend to do it all..when it doesn't all need to be done. Even the kiddo learned how to make a waffle egg sandwich this week...among other things. I wonder how many other things he'd do on his own if I just let him. hmmm.....
