Every day I am pretty sure I do at least one thing wrong. Most days I do more. I used to think I was alone, until I talked to other parents who were honest. Here is a place for more parents to feel less alone, and more "good enough".

Today I was me

Last night, I went to the cinema, and figured out it's the first time in 5-6 years that I have been to see a film without Adam. And it was bliss and I loved it and it is one thing from my yearly list I am very much looking forward to doing again next month. To sit, in a cinema, completely immersed in a film, and munching salted popcorn, is one of life's pleasures I had truly missed. And it was interesting to learn something I had no knowledge of previously, and know that people can overcome such adversity in their lives, despite the misgivings of others. And it also made me realise that only a man who would abdicate his throne for me, is truly worthy of my attention :D
I have a plan for number 7 of my february list, and it will also cover the be lovely part of this month. Of course, being lovely is very easy for me as I am naturally a wonderfully lovely person. If you would like to be part of this plan, please send me your address - don't be shy I need volunteers. I promise not to send ninjas to attack you, although obviously don't volunteer if, when thinking about our friendship, you fear this may be the case.
Something very important happened today. I talked to two friends about real things. In fact, the first person, so very real things that I couldn't believe I was saying some of the things to her that I did, and that somebody had said the same things to me once and I hadn't always listened. I told her this, and she laughed. And we both laughed, and she did listen and I did help her and everything is going to be ok now.
Today I laughed, and I listened, and I talked, and I thought, and I realised. Today was a good day, today I was me.
