Hello all! I hope your first day of February is going well. I figured with how my day has gone, I would sit down and talk about tough days with little ones. I think I will make a series called Mommy Chats or Mommy Stories. If you have any thoughts or ideas let me know! Its a working title for the moment.
So I woke up this morning not feeling the best. I have had a headache the past 2 days that I just cant shake. My nose was also super stuffy and needless to say I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. My daughter must have thought “today is a good day to drive mommy crazy.” She has been running around and screaming nonstop all day long. Normally I would be somewhat calm with her, but today I just can’t seem to deal with it. She has managed to push all my buttons and it is only a little after 3:00 p.m. Thankfully she is down for her nap now, lets cross our fingers and hope its a good 2 hour nap.
As I was getting Riley down for her nap, I was thinking that other parents probably have days like this too. Days that just don’t go as planned and no matter what they are slightly (I’m more than slightly) on edge. I thought this could be a good place where we can all talk about our mommy or daddy struggles and help one another out. For instance, if you have gone through this and have any tricks to help the rest of the day go smoother, they can share their ideas. Unfortunately, I don’t have any tips or tricks today. My goals are to learn to be calmer and more collected on the rough days. Maybe I should try meditation again?
Well that is all I have for now. If you liked this post please let me know! I love hearing your thoughts and learning what I could do better.
Thank you all so much for reading, I hope the rest of your day goes well!
