Sleep deprivation makes you crazy, or in my case, crazier.
The girls pelted me with plastic bath toys last night after I asked them to get out of the bath for the umpteenth time and I grabbed Miss A and smacked her on the bottom after she refused to stop doing cannon balls in the tub. Miss C proceeded to curl up in a towel and glare at me like I was the worst mother on the planet. I kept replaying that situation in my mind, wondering what I could have done differently. Another mother, a better mother, would have handled that situation with much more patience and grace.
Today I want to forget all that and focus on the positive despite the distractions in life, like flying rubber ducks.
My mom got amazingly wonderful news from a lung specialist yesterday. Eight months ago a spot was found on her lungs and she was told she had pulmonary fibrosis, which typically only worsens. Yesterday the cat scan showed things had greatly improved from eight months ago and the specialist was not concerned.
The hubby ran by Publix after work to pick up a salmon filet so he could throw together a fabulous spinach salmon caesar salad despite working a full day and being exhausted after sleeping with a coughing 3-year-old all night.
Both the girls are back at daycare and school today.
My mother-in-law watched the girls all day yesterday. Thanks to our parents being close by we have paid for a babysitter ONCE in six years. Can I get an Amen?
My neighbor and boss have both given me nice hand me down clothing for the girls recently (and I’ve been able to pay it forward by sharing things with a co-worker with two little girls.)
Miss C was invited to spend the day at the zoo Tuesday with one of her best buddies from school. Of course she got car sick and threw up at the zoo, but she had a great time.
Our last soccer game is Saturday. It’s going to be a nice break to have just one extracurricular activity, dance, through the end of the year.
I’m seeing a chiropractor…no, no not like that…for the first time and I’m going to get my head on straight, literally.
I survived taking both girls to church by myself Sunday while the hubby assembled new office furniture. We’ve been using second hand, cheap office furniture at home for years so I had an organizationalgasm when he brought home a new desk, bookshelf, and printer table from Staples.
I have met some amazing people and done some great networking lately thanks to this silly old blog. I was treated to lunch recently by Jaeme Laczkowski (who had her adorable baby girl with her) from LeapFrog, thanks to Kim Moldofsky, whom I met at Johnson & Johnson’s Camp Baby. Kim also gave me advice about doing some social networking consulting.
Jennifer at Little Piddles gave me an Uber Amazing Blog Award this week.
Hey, what are you thankful for?
