Confession Time….

Since I named this blog Confessions of a Canadian mom, I thought I should write an actual confession.

Today was my first day totally alone with my new little man. Hubby was back to work. Older 2 kids are back to school. Grandparents have gone home. And I had plans for today.

I was going to go for a walk after I dropped the kids at school.
I was going to do laundry.
I was going to clean the kitchen. Not just empty and reload the dishwasher, but give it a good thorough cleaning and even clean the fridge – it’s garbage night so it seemed like a good time.

I didn’t do any of those things.

So what did I do?
Snuggled with my little man.
Played on the floor with him. Ok – he’s 3 weeks old, so I layed on the floor beside him and tried to get him yo look at me and made funny sounds.
I watched Gilmore Girls on Netflix.

Best of all, I didn’t feel guilty about any of it. The laundry will still be there later. It was too fricken cold to go for a walk this morning (my face hurt by the time I got back to the car from dropping the kids off today). And if my other 2 children have taught me anything it’s that they really do grow too quickly. So you better get all those snuggles in while you can and while they still want to.
