Am I eating enough? Am I eating too much? Will my baby be healthy? Will delivery go ok?
The list goes on and on, and only gets longer once your bundle of joy arrives. Sometimes our fears have cause, but the majority of our worries are over things that are trivial.
I am a cronic Worrier, so to make you feel better, and to let you know you aren't alone in the worrisome world of motherhood, I am listing some of the random things I worry about throughout my day, from the serious to the just plain silly...
Did I pack them a snack? I hope today isnt picture day! I always forget picture day!
Are they eating enough veggies? Should we go organic? Didnt I see an article that organic isn't really that much better for you?
Dallas brought home a karate sign up form, should I let him do it? At his age will that make him think violence is ok?
Do they play too many sports? I dont want them to think school isnt important or lose focus on their work, but extracurricular activities are good for college right?
Should I be worried about college? They are only in kindergarten and 1st grade...
Do they get bullied at school? would they tell me if they were? Gosh I hope they never become a bully!
How long has Donovan had that cough? 2 days or 3? could it be more than just a cough? maybe I should call the doctor?
Should they be going to bed earlier? should we stop the naps?
Should I make them go to church or give them an option? I want them to go but will forcing them make them dislike it?
Are they making friends at school? Are they making the "right" friends?
What should we get them for Christmas? Are my children spoiled?
Are they ready for their own rooms? Ugh...Am I ready for that?
Did they brush their teeth before bed? Are they brushing long enough?
I hope they don't catch the flu! they got the vaccine but does that actually help?
How are we going to pay for college?? Am I really thinking about college again?
Go ahead and laugh, believe me I laugh at myself over how I obsessively worry over my children, but we are moms, thats what we do! :)
What are some of the things you worry about when it comes to your kids? Do you ever feel silly for doing so? I look forward to hearing your stories! Feel free to share this!
