Blessings Learned


My kids were at daycare and school today for almost 11 hours. I barely make it the normal nine hour work day without feeling guilty for not being with them, but I love my career too, and making a difference, so to work I will go tomorrow.

I spent way more time than I’d like to admit trying to print labels today. My track record with label printing ain’t so great.

I used to spend weeks planning parties for our little’s birthdays. I realized today that our oldest daughter turns four Monday, and I’ve done nothing! Seriously – nothing!

We drove through Taco Bell for dinner tonight, but ended up eating more ice cream and fruit snacks than tacos (choosing my battles).

During our taco, ice cream, fruit snack dinner our oldest daughter brought me to tears, when she said that I don’t pay enough attention to her. Just one of the challenges of being a big family, I suppose. I’ll have to find a way to resolve her concern soon.

I had an additional small meltdown when the baby wanted people food for dinner and didn’t care to nurse. She can’t be big enough to want people food, I mean she is, but she can’t be.

I had to drag the kids out of the house to run back to work. The baby cried the whole way there and the whole way back home. 

I sent my kids to bed in their clothes for tomorrow because we have to be out the door and in the car before the sun is up. 

I haven’t shaved my legs since the last fancy party we went to almost two months ago. My legs resemble those of a cave woman and if I didn’t need to dress-up for work tomorrow (no leggings with this dress – boo!!!!) I wouldn’t bother with shaving now.

I have five blog posts sitting as drafts, just waiting to be finished. Yay for having stuff to share!

I got 10,000 steps in today and my blood pressure was 98/64 – woot!

I listened to some good music and daydreamed about owning Miley’s dress from the Grammy’s (size 8 please).

My kids went to bed happy with full bellies (ice cream and fruit snacks won’t hurt for one night).

The kids went to bed with no fussing and are so absolutely beautiful when they are sleeping.
