Then my husband reminded me that I sing to Freckles about how he is the best puppy all day, kiss Freckles on the lips, and take her to the zoo every chance I get. Maybe that’s where her love of animals comes from?
Above is another picture of Princess A during her make out session with Freckles’ girlfriend. I love this picture because it shows how Princess A squats down, closes her eyes, and slowly kisses animals. It is so cute. Today she kissed a chinchilla at the petting zoo.
While I am happy that Princess A has copied this part of The Husband and my personalities, it has shown me how she looks up to us and copies us. Which reminds me that again I need to take better care of myself. Which reminds me that I am reminding myself to do this and then do it for about 2 weeks and then go back to my old habits of not sleeping enough, making self-deprecating remarks about myself, and not taking the extra 5 minutes a day to make myself feel pampered.
But now I am out of time and excuses. Princess A understands everything and copies my every move. So from now on… and this time I really mean it… I am going to treat myself as I would treat my daughter.
Are you awesome at taking care of others but struggle to take care of yourself? If so, have you fixed the problem? If you have what are your tips… and if not what is stopping you?
