Mondays are rough for cause now that I am training for my upcoming race I have to work in my exercise routine everyday. The problem with this is that I also have my daughter on Mondays. Now I love Daddy and Daughter Mondays but this past week I fell short of being a parent.
Yesterday I told you about my first experience at yoga class but like most things in this world, there is more to the story. After dropping K-Dub off at the gym daycare and completing my first class, I decided to go ahead and do some weight and race training.
So there I was running my scheduled two miles. I finished my weight and race training when I happen to look at the time on my phone and saw that K-Dub had been in the daycare for almost three hours. There is a two hour limit. So I rushed downstairs to get her and was reminded by the worker that there is a two hour limit. I apologized. K-Dub looked at me with tears in her eyes and she looked so sleepy.
Although we missed her first nap, I got her home and fed her some lunch and then gave her a bottle to help calm her down and put her to bed. I was completely upset with myself for being so selfish. I forgot that when you are a parent you can’t be that way. Yes, I want to do well at this race and prove to myself and others that I can do it but not at the cost of my child.
So I fell short on being a parent and the only thing I can do about it is be a better parent the next day and that was just what I did!
I think she forgave me!
