So we were all sitting around the dinner table the other night, eating and talking. We were talking about the games my daughter likes to play and the things she likes to do. My daughter, ever the ham, was like, "And this is what Mommy likes to do."
*Note: This picture was staged later, but it is an exact replica of what she looked like as she pantomimed me typing on the computer.
We all laughed, of course, but I felt a twinge of guilt. I hope my kids will one day read and appreciate my stories, but at the same time I don't want them to resent the time I spend on the computer (which really, honestly, isn't much when they are awake.)Obviously, my children take priority. But, I strongly believe that it is so important for us moms to have that thing. Whether is be writing, or sewing, or training for a marathon, we need a goal that we work on just for us. I think my writing makes me a happier mom, which in turn makes me a better mom. Hopefully, my daughter will understand that one day.
