Partytime, why am I stressed?

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Bad enough that there is enough stress out in the world... I create more for myself.

The good thing is being this stressed, I am too stressed to eat. Minor stresses trigger an urge to gnaw.

Today is a party for my son's birthday. To create less stress(for me), since he wanted pizza and beer was to have it at a restaurant, Yet I still find myself stressing. Why?
Why am I creating this stress? My son told me who he wanted at the party, I guess I just want to impress and make sure my son and his friends have a good time.
I'm not concerned about the behavior. The differing abilities range from Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome and others I am not quite sure what. I know my son's friends. They have quirks just like all of us do and they are wonderful people.
I selected a time when the restaurant was a bit slower and well staffed. I just want my son and his friends to have a great time.

Yesterday I took my son out for a haircut, waxing of the unibrow and manicure. The salon was a bit too busy to add on a chair massage. My party animal is all primped and next was to get some party items, He loved a plastic top hat that said "It's Time to Party" and got some beads to share with his friends.

I guess I am stressed about making this perfect for him. He doesn't care about it being perfect, He doesn't care about presents. He just cares about presence and enjoying life. He has what he wants:
Good food, Good Friends and a Good Time.

I need to loosen up and celebrate life just like him.

    Wonderful blog: presence not presents.

You are a wonderful mother. Which does not mean being "perfect". But: gotta celebrate your motherness. Because it's awesome, truly.

And I'm betting the party is going to be (not perfect but) awesome too.
