Guilt has become my new best friend.
Not that I like having guilt around, but it has become my constant companion.
In order to rid myself of the all consuming feeling, I took the weekend off.
Thursday my neighbor and I took the kids to a splash park. Hot sun + water squirting big toy = loads of fun.
On Friday we went to the Tracy Aviary. Keith talked about it non-stop the rest of the weekend. It really is such a nice place. I think my favorite part was the owl flying right over my head. Pretty awesome, that.
Later that night Keith and I went to the park and fed the ducks. It was nice to have time with just Keith alone. We don't do that often enough. I think I need to go on a date with him alone once a week. It was special being able to connect with him in that way. He is growing up to be such a wonderful special boy!
Saturday was a busy day of cleaning and grocery shopping, and getting ready for the Sabbath. But that night our friends came over and the boys played with Keith's toys while my friend and I watched Pride and Prejudice.
Since his friend is already potty trained, he decided he wanted to put on his big boy undies to be like his friend. He pulled off his jammies, and his diaper and came out all dressed.
Luckily, guilt has not been around for the past few days. I am hoping I can keep it that way.
