Hey Tuesday! Yesterday, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. As soon as I opened my eyes, my oldest toddler was already asking me to start up the bubble machine in the backyard by shoving the machine in my face…While I was still in bed mind you…While we were walking down the stairs, I proceeded to tell her to wait and we’ll do it soon, that Mommy needs her caffeine and breakfast first… WELL. that didn’t go over so well… Tears and pouting came shortly after she put the machine on the coffee table and curled up on the couch with her blanket and bottom lip sticking out. Then, my youngest toddler grabbed it and was saying “Outside, outside!” …..Guess what…The bubble machine made it’s way to the garage and there it still sits… ugh… Not a single drop of caffeine has hit my tongue yet… too early… zombie… not enough sleep…What day is it? Was it a full moon last night? How long have my kids been awake already? Did they sneak in sugar at some point this morning already? All thoughts that were running through my mind while I took my first sip of caffeine courage. What a fun day this will be, huh? So, after I quickly ate a granola bar, we headed to the backyard and they ran around and around and around… still, I was too tired for all of that energy. Why can’t I wake up that full of energy? I sure am liking the early morning weather though. The perfect amount of a cool breeze, the smell of a fresh new day and a clear view of the mountains. Holy moly, no matter how I wake up, no matter how tired I am, no matter what the kids will be like any day, I am blessed. Thank you, God.
As I am currently writing today’s blog post, both kids are whining to be held, to go outside, wanting a snack, to go to the park… Another repeat of yesterday? I hope not. Yesterday, I turned into one of those parents who drove around the block to get them to nap. It works! Imagine that! Is that why I hear so many moms and dads doing that? Magical… Today, I think we’ll go to the pool and tire them out that way. Fingers crossed for a full night of sleep.
Anyways, getting ahead of myself, here is today’s card to say, “Hello Friend”. Let’s chat, shall we? What is on your mind lately? How is life treating you?
