Now birthdays are a little different we still don't go overboard but we do exchange gifts. My dilemma this year is.. I am no longer working.We have never been a this is my money this is yours kind of couple. We don't and never have had separate bank accounts etc. So I went to order something for him today. Now I suppose I could make myself feel better by saying it's from the kids which I planned on doing..But I can't help but feel like he paid for his own gift. So how is that a gift? What do you think?
I am trying to look at like when the kids want to get us something at a school fair or something. We give them money, they return with a gift picked out from there hearts. I have never thought well I technically paid for this so it's not a "gift".
Don't get me wrong, my husband doesn't think like that either. I just for some reason feel bad, like he had to work for his gift.
Maybe I am just having a hard time finding my place as a SAHM again. I REALLY enjoy being home with my family but there is a part of my that really misses putting forth my share of the money or feeling like I worked for something. Does that make sense? HUH.... I don't know just one of those nights I suppose. Now on to a Happier post!
