The Dreaded Day...

Yesterday was a BIG day for me and The Mister.  It was the day that I have been DREADING and it was also the day that The Mister has been looking forward to since the kiddos graced the world with their presence.  It was a family outing ON THE BOAT (say what?!?).
I know I can over-exaggerate at times but I really was dreading this day ever since I had kids!  Yeah, it was fun and all (before the kids) but now that I’m a mama, I’m a bit over-protected and tend to ALWAYS think of the worst scenario.  I can’t help myself.  Being a mama is the greatest but scariest thing in the world…to me.  I think to myself that it is so amazing that these two little people are my children but at the same time it’s scary to think that I’m responsible for them.  Anyway, moving on…
Since I promised myself that I would NOT be a spawn of my OCDover-protectivecontrolfreak mother, I gave in to this family outing.  I sucked it up and prayed that I wouldn’t have a meltdown.  In the beginning, I was the annoying mom who wouldn’t let them do anything but sit there and breathe until The Mister made it a point that I was going against my promise because I was acting like my mother (how rude!).  Okay, got it…time to calm down, relax, and let my little ones have some fun because (a reminder from The Mister) it wasn’t like we were in Deadliest Catch waters!  In the end, I survived and they had a blast!!
