I wrote this last week but wanted to save it for a Monday morning. I know Mondays can be hard in their own unique way, so here’s a little bit encouragement if you’re in need.
Fact: there are days when everything feels like it’s going the wrong way. The day before today was kinda perfect and I felt like motherhood was the easiest job ever. A couple loads of laundry: washed. Floors: swept, mopped, vacuumed. No meltdowns from anyone smaller than me. And the real icing for the day: my hubby was home in time for us to sit down together for dinner.
But then I woke up and it was tomorrow (really today), and it felt nothing like yesterday delivered.
And that’s when I take the time to realize how grateful I am to be a mama first and a blogger/working lady second.
Maxwell’s whining was easily remedied if I sat with him on the floor in the nursery to play.
My morning shower that didn’t happen because today was “just one of those days”? Well, now I know what I’ll be doing this evening :)
It’s OK that Max didn’t want to eat his entire lunch, he can have an extra serving of fruit and some crackers after his afternoon nap. Some things simply aren’t worth fussing over.
And possibly my most important lesson from today: nothing is more urgent than my time spent with our children.
I love knowing that (and experiencing it, too).
Sometimes I wish I could sneak off and lose myself to hours spent in a sewing studio, but I know today is where I’m supposed to be and tomorrow will most definitely hold something awesome, too.
