You know those days.
You try to write a blog post while the little one is in play group and still don’t manage to finish it in time.
You’ve been sending e-mails back and for regarding at least three potential paid opportunities but it still doesn’t feel like you’re getting anywhere with any of them.
The garden lawn needs a cut but you can’t get the mower to work.
The windows need cleaning.
You’ve been washing and drying clothes all day but somehow still have a mountain of dirty clothes to climb.
You wash the breakfast dishes and make dinner. You eat dinner and clear the table. There is no time left to wash up as your little one needs you.
She is tired from play group, has a full belly and needs a story, songs and a cuddle with Mummy.
You willingly comply and soon she is asleep.
You look around and realise you still haven’t tidied up the living room, emptied the nearly over flowing bin or cleared the kids rooms as you had planned.
You get things ready for after school clubs, put up the buggy and it’s time to do the afternoon school run.
Off you go with a sigh, feeling annoyed at yourself for wasting another day by not appearing to achieve anything.
You pick up the kids. The Sun is shining. You stop to let them play. You can’t help but smile and be happy.
|Ignore the tights and the rubbish!|
You think about the words you’re always saying to them.
Just do your best, it’s all that you can do.
You realise that you have worked hard all day. You have done your best even if you haven’t reached your goals today.
You remember that there will always be tomorrow.
yep. yesterday was one of those days for me. Some days I am totally lacking in energy and can't get a thing done. I had quite an early night last night so hopefully today will be a bit better ! xx
we all have those days. When we have one of 'those days' I drop everything and take them out to the park or something… I know I'm not going to get anything done, so it's easier to give in to it and know tomorrow will be better!
That so sounds like so many of my days perfectly put into words and pictures! Thank you for linking up on Country Kids.
so agree with what Polly said! love the pictures, especially the jumping blocks ones 🙂 x
Sounds like most of my days at the moment! x
Nothing like a bit of sunshine and fresh air to blow those feelings away, sometimes its good to just say forget it!
Sunshine always makes everything better x
I'm having one of those tonight. After putting F to bed I realised the carnage still left to deal with. Ah well, let's hope it's sunny in Bristol tomorrow. x
i don't have kids so i can't relate to this on that front, but absolutely everyone has days like this! glad you had a good ending though 🙂
You've described most of my life!!!
Yep, pretty much sums up lots of my days! There's always something else that needs doing isn't there? x
What a lovely post and photos, such a good description of almost every day!
Sounds like a typical day for every mum. You've done loads though – happy healthly kids is a big achievement. #countrykids
