Mom not in control!

Letting go of the control! A couple of days ago I was unable to take the day off to bring Mateo in to get his shots and bring the dog to the vet, two things I have always done in my household. Therefore my husband took half the day off and had to play my role. I did ask him to do a blog post about his experience but he was too chicken.
Now I started off this post with "Letting go of the control!" because I had to, because even though I repeated what to say to the doctor and the vet about a thousand times to my husband, I just had to let happen, happen. If the questions didn't get answered, or things didn't get done the way I would of done them, then I would just have to live with that, and know everything would be ok. This is not an easy task for me, because I like getting everything checked off, and I like things done a certain way, because I just think they are the right way to do things and they make sense to  me.
Luckily I was too tired and didn't even think about certain things, like Mateo getting an afternoon nap, or his bottles; getting all the questions answered from the vet, so I didn't have to make another appointment (which is way too expensive). If I had thought of all these additional things, I would of driven myself crazy.
All and all my husband did a fantastic job, like the great dad he is, and everyone survived so I think this was a really good test for me as a mom, in order to relax a little and maybe even get some sanity back (wouldn't that be nice?)


  1. I love this post. I feel the same way (new mom also). It has been hard to let go of the control but over time and different tests I know it will get easier. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Rose, thanks for not making me feel like the only crazy mom out there! Also I went on your blog, and now a follower, I like the money saving tips, thanks!
