Some days…

And after three weeks of perfect weather and days out  frolicking in the sun with my babies and my man, comes a day like today.

Robin has started coughing and wheezing again, thanks to a runny nose Maia got a few days ago which has obviously been passed on to the little one. We’ve had two consecutive quasi-sleepless nights while the husband is away at work and I’m in a right state. As I write this, Robin is sleeping in my lap and Maia just went to school crying. Her tears were brought on by my being a complete nightmare this morning. I yelled until my throat hurt. She wouldn’t have her cereal, then she wouldn’t have the crackers she asked for as a second option, she took AGES to put on her shoes saying they felt different and I couldn’t get her hair the way she wanted it. I ended up sobbing on her bed, asking her to forgive me and to please be nicer to me and cooperate a bit more. On days like today I feel like a complete failure.

The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that better days will come.

  1. Oh no Maureen! We ALL have days like that. You are no failure by any means. But, ugh! That has been one of the biggest challenges for me with kindergarten – getting that girl to MOVE in the morning! She naturally wakes up around 8am on her own, but i have to wake her up at 6am. If she’s gone to bed even a few minutes late, she spends the whole morning crying “But I haven’t had enough rest!” and curled up on the couch with her eyes closed until the very last possible second. Of course I feel bad for her but it is so hard not to get frustrated. Hang in there. Tomorrow will be better. 🙂 Love that painting by the way!
