Six Reasons Why This Will Be a Challenging Week For Me

There are six reasons why this coming week will be a challenging one for me and I am going to try not to let my depression get the best of me!

1) Tyler has camp all next week and Grant and I have decided that he will spend the whole week with me since the camp is closest to me. I miss Tyler when he’s gone, but I do treasure my time alone, and with my boyfriend. I mostly catch up on a lot of sleep and Netflix!

2) Tyler prefers not to have any camps in the summer. He is just happy at the pool and playing video games, but Grant and I feel some camp is good for him.

3) It will be a lot like school. The camp’s hours are from 9:00 – 3:30. I’ve already gotten used to the relaxing mornings of summer vacation and a bit of a later bedtime hour.

4) I’m going to try to bring Tyler to the pool at least one day after camp, then he won’t feel so deprived of the water slide!

5) I have to pack lunches for him. Ahhhh, he got free lunch in school! I’m going to be feeling guilty about this but I’m going to send him with a couple of Lunchables.

6) I have to make dinner for him all week long! I struggle with dinner on the four nights I have him, he is such a picky eater.

I am determined that I will overcome my depression this week to make it a fun week for Tyler! Extra spoons are appreciated!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

    Good luck! And don’t feel guilty for giving him Lunchables…my packed lunches were always sandwiches, either bologna or PB&J. Lunchables were a great treat, and I loved them! 🙂 Enjoy your time off, and I hope Tyler has a great time at camp!

      I know, Tyler was begging me for a Lunchable yesterday and I said not until this week! Every mom just wants me to be a supermom though.

    Don’t feel guilty about sending Lunchables! As long as you get food in him, you’re doing great. Plus when I was in camp, Lunchables were the cool thing. I brought one once and everyone wanted to trade their homemade lunches for it. Hope your week goes well.

      Thanks, Brittany. I guess I see too many Pinterest ideas about how to make your kids lunch into animals or something!
