Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

Baby Girl Needs a Nap!

One day last week…

We’d just gotten home after I picked her and her sister up from school and daycare. Baby Girl was a bit grumpy because apparently she didn’t have a very good nap at ‘nap time’.

Well, we all went upstairs to wash our hands and change out of the clothes we’d been in all day and Baby Girl was just cranky!

After washing her hands, she started to give me the ‘talk’.

“Mommy, you forgot to roll up my sleeves and I asked you 2 times!”

Okay…but you know how to roll up your sleeves, child…

“…and then you put soap on my boo-boo and now it’s hurting!”

Did you tell me you have a boo-boo?

“Bend down Mommy, bend down…”

She proceeds to tug on the front of my shirt to indicate that I really, really needed to bend down.

So I did and so did Diva Girl…

“Do you see this boo-boo right here?” The child proceeded to show me a red dot on her thumb so small that I’m sure I would have missed it had I not had on my glasses.

Now I just want you to take a moment to picture my soon to be 4 year old speaking to me as if I may be a bit senile (no comments please) as she pointed out the offensive looking (but very miniscule) injury on her cute little thumb.

Sigh with me please….SIGH

Diva Girl decides to chime in at this point… “Oh I see it Mommy!”

Ummm… thanks, your 2 cents has really contributed to diffusing the situation.

Two minutes later, after promising to find a band-aid that would cover that boo-boo; she has turned on her big sister and was giving her attitude equipped with vigorous finger pointing, neck snapping energy. I think the Diva was a little nervous…

Needless to say, the rest of the evening was quite interesting until we all went to bed!

SOME DAYS…

 

Some days I feel frustrated. Raising two kids and working full time. Trying to make sure my family is happy and secure. It’s not that I don’t want to do these things, but where is my time? When do I get a chance to just unwind and do something that is strictly for me? It seems as if I never have the time to do the things that I want to do; like write more often. Maybe even start a business. Sometimes I’m just too tired at the end of the day, that it just seems better to give in and give up. Between these feelings and then the guilt that follows, I feel unsettled and definitely frustrated.

Then I have a day like today. A beautiful day, not too hot, but just hot enough. Diva girl wakes up, and asks if she can go to church with her nana. Baby girl doesn’t cry when they leave, she just wants to go outside to blow bubbles. It’s 9 am on a Sunday in the middle of summer…why not? We blow bubbles from those dollar store jars of suds and she chases them and counts them…”1, 2, 5, 8!” After 15 minutes, she’s bored and we go back inside so that I can start cooking and she can change her dolly’s diaper. She sings and rocks her dolly to sleep and comes to tell me that she’s making dolly soup. Why not…?

When Diva girl gets home, we have lunch and then we try our best to conquer Angry Birds on the tablet. At five, she is already kicking my behind. The TV is off and the windows and doors are open. The girls are playing and arguing….but what else is new? Then they make up and we dance to a silly beat that they make up using unsharpened pencils as drumsticks.  We read a book, I change diapers and soothe hurt feelings and kiss boo boos.  We laugh, we hang out and my girls jump on me for tickle time.

What the heck is there to be frustrated about anyway?
