All right, we’ve all had those moments where we just don’t want to pay attention to the kids anymore!! You’ve told them a million times to stop doing something and they just keep doing it! I have to say that my patience level is very low for things like this. (I really am trying to get better, but my old age is not allowing it!!!).
Today is one of those days, I have a million things on my agenda, with new deadlines thrown my way! And, oh yeah, it’s Christmas time. With all the craziness that this time of year brings, I really do try to find the spirit of the season and remember that no matter how crazy I feel, I truly am blessed. I also have my sweet little Ellie to put it all in perspective for me.
Another day of preschool brings another day of “knowledge” learned. Today was the rolling of the eyes with the whip of the wrist! But along with these not really so new lessons, comes the comments of “Don’t worry, Mom, I’m o.k.”. I just had to giggle and pray that I wouldn’t be making a trip to the emergency room, as that is not on my agenda today. So, like most caring parents, I just sat and watched her climb the “mountain” and took pictures! The best was the smirk I got after she thought I wasn’t paying attention. And just so you all know, I was watching her and making sure she wouldn’t get hurt!
Being a mom is stressful and demanding and enjoyable and a true blessing, but there are those moments when we want to turn it off! That doesn’t make us bad moms, it makes us human. I’m going to go enjoy the rest of my crazy day and I hope you all do the same.
