SqueeziN some time but feeling a bit guilty
Thursday, April 04, 2013
One of the many obstacles that face most of us is finding time to exersice. I have to admit i am struggling with this. Like others i have a crazy schedule, i wake up at 415am already, so waking up even earlier than that is unlikely. So i usually try to get out after dinner which is around 630pm, which can be tricky to do with a toddler. My husband works from 11am-11pm, so i don't see him most days. So i really feel like a single mom at times. Just part of being a Navy wife, i'm use to the lifestyle but my son is not. Anyway back to my dilemma. I drop my son off at daycare at 6am and i pick him up at a little after 3. That's 9 hours he spends at daycare. I feel guilty about that already, but i'm thinking about keeping him in day care for an extra hour. Picking him up after four will make it a little crazy at first but it will give me that time i need to "really" get my butt moving. I feel i'm unable to push myself the way i want with him in the buggy asking me a billions questions. We stop often so he can check out a tree or a bird, so really i'm not focus on myself. I know it's the best thing for me to do but i just feel so guilty. My husband feels i should leave him there until 6pm, but there is no way in the world i want to leave my son in daycare for 12 hours. I feel like i'm not only being unfare to my son but i'm taking advantage of the daycare employees. Especially when they tell me that my son start to look for me when it gets close to 3pm. Next week he is moving up to the Toddler Class because he turns two this month. So i'm thinking i should take advantage of the change and start picking him up after 4. I won't get home until 5 and that means i'll have to start cooking dinner right away. I'm use to eating dinner around 6ish, i cook quick meals so it's doable. It's just the guilt that i will have the hardest time with. I know it's not easy being a Mom, but it's time for me to put on my superwoman undies.
