A couple of times a month I like to bake cookies or create fun personalized gifts for close friends. There are times when these gestures take away from time with KLV and the Husband. Last night I wondered why I don’t mind doing these things for other people and some days I have to talk myself into making dinner or do a load of laundry. Reason: People outside my house don’t expect it therefore they appreciate it.
Every stay at home mom gets a little blue from time to time feeling underappreciated. It’s normal because it’s our job and everyone feels ill appreciated at their job occasionally.
So while these diversions of baking a batch of cookies for a friend (and letting KLV crack the eggs) may appear like I’m taking away from puzzle time with KLV, perhaps I’ll look at it as a way to show her how to love beyond the walls of our home. And without a doubt there are moments I'll drop everything just to hang with her.
