I don’t know about you but, I am a “I got it” mom. I’m terrible at asking and accepting help. I don’t know if I’m trying to prove that I can do it or if it’s a control issue. Probably a little bit of both.
Yesterday I was sick at home. I’m so stubborn that when my boyfriend told me he would get the girls from preschool I said I got it.
Why do I do it to myself? I live way out of town there is no reason for me to get them. Plus I still feel like crap. As usual I beat myself up for this. Just let someone help what is wrong with you?
For once I listened to myself and told him he could get the girls. Even after I did that I tried giving him instructions on how to do it. He finally just said I got this.
He does got it, he is an awesome dad to our girls. I still stressed about it until they got home. When they came home the girls were so excited that he was the one who picked up. I spent the rest of the night letting him and our two little girls take care of me.
I have to let go and let my family help me. The world didn’t end when I accepted help. To much in my life I start to feel over run, the walls closing in. When there are people all around me who are willing to help. I should be grateful, there are people who don’t have that. For all the “I got it” mom’s take a breath and let someone help.
