I Worry

I did get some more Christmas shopping done. I got Josh two gifts, which I won't reveal in case he reads this. I also got the kid some gifts. I got him two books from Borders and a Simpsons calendar. He won't be thrilled about the books, but I am hoping it's something we can enjoy together. I love reading with him, taking our turn back and forth. I usually end up reading to him, which I don't mind.

I've been thinking a lot about my kid today. I worry just like any mom. I worry about his health. I worry about his spirit. I worry about his grades. I worry about what might happen if something were to happen to me. I worry a lot when it comes to the kid. He is everything to me. He is my whole entire complete world. I love him more than anything.

I know I speak for many moms out there. It's tougher when your a single parent, especially if you are the primary caregiver. But I love every moment, even the hard ones.

So, dinner turned out pretty darn good. I made smothered beef burritos with homemade guacamole. I don't think I have ever made these for Josh, but he liked them. He has been taking all of the leftovers to work. It makes me feel good when he does that.

I'm really tired, so I am just going to check in with a few of my favorites before I turn in. Talk at you all tomorrow.

smothered burritos sound great. I'm putting it on my menu for next week...or maybe this weekend.

Say, what's you're preference, grey or burgundy socks? (i have both colors in my stash and as soon as Grandma's throw is done I'm going to need something else on needles.... just saying.)

Why not both colors together? Surprise me!

As a parent, I can so relate. I shudder to think about what would happen if my kids lost their parents but I do know that somehow they would survive.

Your son is fortunate to have you as his mother!

Don't worry. Be happy.

It sounds like everything is going well for you and your kid. You should be joyful and not be so anxious. Actually, I am pre-worrying before I have a kid. I worry about all the bad things that might happen and the downsides of having a kid, that I think I'm not going to have one at all.


oh boy are you ever right! The fears and worrying of us parents..perhaps it will get worse when the get older as we learn to let go and sigh..I can't think that far ahead yet.
But you are a great mother and your son is very very very lucky!!
I could go for a burrito right about now! :)

Just stopping by to say hello. Sorry I've been absent. I'm glad things are looking up in your part of the country. What an unbelievable storm. It makes for a pretty picture, but not when you think of all the devastation.

I worry too, but know that my daughter has a wonderful father. That thought helps a lot.

Enjoy your day, Abba. Stay warm.

Oh beleive me, I know how it is to worry about my little one.

Since Ty has started school I worry about him alllll the time. I worry about whether he will be understood, that he will be treated equally etc... I feel like I no longer can protect him all the time. It's really hard to comes to terms with for me.

I also worry about what would happen if my children would loose us... I try not to go there 'cause that's just plain ol' scary to think about.

You're so not alone, I guess that's what happens when our children have our heart!!!
