I know I am kind of unique in my own way. I’m ok with who I am, even if sometimes people don’t get me. I can be grumpy, funny or dreaming, but I like me and I wouldn’t change anything about me. Well, just maybe for my son.
You can see me passing near you with my eyes on the phone, tweeting away or checking my email, and just because I don’t see it I might get hit by the electricity pole. Why is it standing there anyway? Yeah, I am a great example for my kid.
Now let me tell you something.
The other day, a funny thing happened.
You know about my morning routine already. David and I were on our way out the door to go to the kindergarten. I asked my son to take a sit on the chair on the hallway so I can put his shoes on. I was still very sleepy.
I took the first shoe and put it on his right foot. My son gave me a look with his big brown eyes and said “Mommy, this is the wrong foot! You must put it here”, showing me his other leg. Now imagine a three year old boy who’s more warily than his 35 year old mommy. Isn’t it funny? And the morning wasn’t over.
I had to take to the kindergarten one clean pair of pants. I remembered this when I woke up. I grabbed a clean pair from his closet and put it in the hallway, just so I can see them before I get out the door. Guess what? I forgot them.
And above all, after I helped David getting out of the car, I realized that I forgot my car-keys inside.
So, this is me. I am often dreaming and not paying attention to details. But this makes me the unique person that I am.
I will come back and tell you some more stories about my sometimes funny motherhood life.
