Wise words from my son...

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Just started carpooling with my son to help defray the cost of gas. While that means I'm at school 1/2 hour earlier than usual and I stay one hour longer than usual at the end of the day, there have been positives. #1 -- not taking as much work home with me ...and #2 ...getting to know my 23 year old son Kurt better!!

He's gotten pretty wise in the years since high school...back when I had to check homework, and make sure he got to swim practice on time, and got the merit badges he needed to become an Eagle Scout...

He's now giving me some important advice. Kurt's very fit...and wants me to take better care of myself. He's not only commenting on what I can physically do to get myself healthier...but he's giving me reasons why I SHOULD PUT MYSELF FIRST!
Think I'll take his advice. Don't want to ever miss out on being there to see how my kids have turned out...Jamie, my daughter, has a great husband, amazing son and another son on the way. If I take better care of myself, I'll get to someday meet my son's future wife and children...and then he will see that I actually took his advice! Won't that be great!

    Being a mother it is always a tough thing to step back and put yourself first especially since it always seems like you are expected to take care of everyone else and then yourself.
