So there was a time when Aru was teething (you’ve probably heard heaps about this time).

It was unexpectedly hard. We got as much help as we could.

On Thursday, Aru’s nanny, Barbara, generously said to me, “If you need my help today, just let me know. I am free and I won’t charge. I just want to help.”

And all of my veins were saying it would be fine. I’d manage.

I shouldn’t take the help.

I don’t want her to think I’m taking her for granted.

He’s my child, I should be able to do this.

Etc. Etc. Etc.

Then later in the day, I called her and asked her to help me.
Thank god for that because I forgot about Aru’s arvo nap.

Sometimes, when the times get really tough, the universe lends us a helping hand.
But we second guess it.
Doubting ourselves.
Doubting the giver.
When really, life is meant to be easy.

So go on. Say yes. Feel good.
Win. Win.
