As a mom, I worry about not doing a good enough job. This week as I started school and picked up a couple of extra shifts at work, I have worried that things are going to start falling through the cracks, that I have taken on too much and I am not up for the challenge. It only took one phone call with my mother-in-law to realize that my fears have come true.
MIL- I just wanted to go over the menu for this weekend. I was going to buy a cupcake mix for the boys. Is that okay?
Me- um. sure. that would be great.
MIL- Well....I know you aren't going to be there Monday, so should the boys eat them Sunday?
Me- (why would I care........???) I guess it doesn't really matter, whenever you want.
MIL- So.......(probably wondering why her daughter in law is insane) I guess we should celebrate Monkey's birthday on Sunday so you can be there.
Me-................................oh my God.
