Yesterday was one of those "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days." Remember that book?
It started with Bennett not sleeping well for 2 nights in a row. We're talking up every.single.hour.
I woke up in the "I have nothing to wear mood." Watch out!
I shampoo'd my hair with conditioner and tried to condition my hair with shampoo.
When I turned off the hot water, running late already,
a large spider jumped out at my feet from my folded towel.
I was still bitter about having a sort of "dud" birthday this year.
It all went down hill from there.
By 9 am, I was calling my mom in tears and wanting her to talk me back from the edge of a mental cliff.
The entire day went on in this fashion.
By the time we were all home and ready for dinner,
I was a total grump and feeling like being a rotten brat.
Then I looked in this sweet smiling boys eyes, nuzzled his little neck,
took in his baby scent, and snuggled that squishy body.
I suddenly felt so stupid. Am I really letting the most trivial things "RUIN MY DAY?!"
It's funny how things never seem as bad
when you hold your very own gorgeous and perfect baby in your arms.
I am so lucky.
I am in this amazing time in my life,
and I sometimes just forget to soak in the moment, enjoy this little bug..
because before I know it he'll be gone..
the baby will be grown, he'll move away,
and I'll CURSE myself for even thinking any day was a
"terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day."
Back to my old mantra..
BE HERE NOW.
