Today was Brent’s birthday. Last night the boys and I celebrated with him by cooking him a special request supper and then the boys gave him his presents.
Part of the reason the boys have Brent his presents last night was that they just get too excited and they can’t keep it a secret. The other reason we did it this way was so that Brent and I could have a date night to celebrate today.
I am working really hard to try to get out of this funk that I have been in and find some balance and normalcy. So Thursday night we went to the basketball game and tonight we had date night.
I wish I could say that all went smoothly but it didn’t. Thursday wasn’t so bad. Cade did pretty well there. He only tells me to run up the stairs faster as I have him on my back!
Today however, Cade was in a mood. I don’t like to leave him when he gets into these moods. I also don’t want to deal with him when he has these moods. It’s a no-win situation.
But today, I went anyway. The part that didn’t go so well was getting me to think about our date. I kept worrying about Cade’s mood. It took almost half our date before I think I fully “joined” our date. But we made it. And for that I am glad.
I hope this means that I am getting closer to finding a normal I can be comfortable with. Now even more hopefully Cade wakes up with a much better mood tomorrow.
Happy Birthday Brent! I love you!!
