Today is cancelled. I cancelled it. It’s over. Both kids are teething. They’re having yelling matches with each other. Willow is afraid of the lock on the door because it apparently looks like a face to her.
I didn’t get a chance to make my coffee until it was already 2 pm. I was trying to get some work done. Everything and everyone was fighting against me. The cat knocked over my coffee. He broke my mug, which cut my foot. I had to put the cat in the sink to rinse him off since caffeine is dangerous for cats. I couldn’t have him licking himself clean. Sorry, let me say that again. I had to put the CAT in the SINK to rinse him off. I’m sure you can imagine the CATastrophe (please let me have this one joke on this terrible day) that enTAILed (okay that one was a bit much). Kids are screaming. Broken mug pieces are still everywhere. Coffee is still everywhere. Today. Is. cancelled.
Full out survival mode hit me. I cleaned up the hurricane and then put a halt to all production. Some days, the days where it takes 3 hours to clean one square foot of your house, aren’t worth stressing over. It’s okay to cancel them. It’s okay to stop all productivity and just join in on the crazy. On those hard days, I mean the ones where you really just can’t anymore, I challenge you to go with the flow and see where it leads you. I’m all for seizing the day and making it your own. For fighting to keep your head above the water. Sometimes it’s easier to keep your head above the water if you’re just floating downstream, letting the water carry you forward, instead of thrashing around trying to stay afloat in one place. The days where a 3 foot glitter covered dragon with wild eyes and a foaming mouth is demanding cookies and singing baby shark over and over just aren’t worth fighting against. Yes. The dragon was depicting my toddler.
Take advantage of the unicorn days where everybody is magically quiet, playing independently, and eating exactly what you give them without complaining. You can be productive on those days. However far or in between they may be. The laundry will be there tomorrow. The laundry is always there tomorrow… even if you just finished it today.
Keep momming you guys. We’ve got this.
