Yesterday me and Amelia were both feeling poorly so we cuddled up on the sofa with a blanket, a cup of tea for me and Netflix.
Little lady is really liking music at the moment so we spent the afternoon watching all the guilty pleasure, girly, sing a long type films. She had her eyes glued to the screen for Mamma Mia and bless her heart she tried so hard to stay awake through Pitch Perfect 2 but she just couldn’t keep her eyes open.
When rob got home I felt like I had to apologise. I hadn’t washed up, dinner wasn’t ready, the wet washing was still on the side and Amelia’s toys were all over the floor. Only, instead of going ‘it’s okay don’t worry’ like I expected him to, he asked ‘what for?’. I told him, I haven’t done anything all day. He started doing the washing up and gave me the perfect answer, ‘you’ve looked after Amelia all day. That’s more than enough’.
I think sometimes us mums need reminding that if all we did all day was look after the little ones then that is more than enough. Yes the housework needs doing, the dishes need cleaning, the clothes need drying and the kitchen floor needs mopping but that can all wait. As long as Amelia is happy and looked after then I’ve done more than enough. If Rob is happy with that then I should be too.
