Although, truth be told – it took us a few day to get back into the swing things, this co-parenting thing.
Me, with my reserves of liquid steel, learning to let go. Relinquish control and extricate myself from the routine I had established.
Ebb and flow.
It’s tricky business when…two Aquarians decide to hook-up, pro-create and build a family. We’re still (and forever will be), learning on how to be good parents, good partners and good to ourselves.
I’ve learned that letting go of unrealistic ideals and trying to find peace ad-mist the ruckus; to be qualitatively artful in mastering joy.
Letting go of the the need to get it all done and actually enjoy my family. To bask in the sun-geo’s splayed across our bed with little Abby betwixt us and just play. The laundry will get done another day. To re-evaluate my to-do lists and make sure I get my work done, even if it means finger-foods or take-out for dinner.
A less stressed out mama, makes for a kinder, calmer me. One that above all else, is so very truly grateful to have her mister home and is learning from his easy ways and kind heart, every. Single. Day. Doesn’t mean I don’t want to kick his arse on occasion – let’s be real. Where would we be without such fire? *Yawn*
Because this family we’re building and this life we have together?
Is my kind of forever after.
Do you and your partner struggle at times with control and ways to parent?
