Yesterday, Princess A and I were on a walk and we were waiting on the sidewalk for the light to change. All the sudden a cab sped through a red light and got hit by another car. Glass and pieces went flying everywhere. I tried to run away but didn’t have much time. Luckily, nothing hit Princess A and I. When the paramedics came they took the people that were in the cab that ran the light to the hospital in an ambulance. After that they checked Princess A out just to be safe. Princess A had a lot of fun in the ambulance and wasn’t phased a bit by it. It was actually kind a cute. Turns out Princess A was fine and we went home.
I am glad we are ok but the experience freaked me out. Cabs run red lights in NYC all the time so you can be following all the rules and still get hit. Sometimes the passengers encourage the cabs to run the light because they are in a rush and sometimes it’s the driver. Whatever the reason it just shows that sometimes rushing and trying to get everything done fast can be dangerous.
Or maybe I am just over analyzing the situation because lately I have been rushing to get everything done and not taking care of myself. I haven’t been sleeping enough and I haven’t been doing enough yoga. So starting today I am going to take care of myself again. I have talked before about how I would never care for my daughter as badly as I care for myself. I work so hard to make sure she sleeps, eats, and exercises enough. Why is it still such a challenge to give myself the same kind of mothering?
Any advice on time management? Because I feel like if I don’t start babying myself as well as my baby I will get into an emotional and physical wreck so to speak.
