"Yeah ... I'm the sort of mum who puts my family first. But I really admire you for taking time for yourself. I really do. I just prioritise differently".
That. Was a kick in the guts.
Like I was winded.
But, like being winded it passed.
I DO put my family first.
Dinner is on the table every night and I play with the kids and I jump on the tramp and I do the washing and I keep a clean house and I support my husband who's work sucks at the moment ... and yes ... I run.
After all that is done. I run.
That's a bit of a stretch actually. I don't always get it done. But I try. Actually sometimes I don't try. Sometimes I let the kids watch TV and I read a magazine and serve up cherrios and chips for tea in front of sponge bob.
But I love my family. And I give it my best shot. Most of the time.
