I would love to say I stood tall yesterday, but guys…I had a complete “mommy moment”. You know the kind…where you lock yourself in the bathroom and have a good cry. I’d like to say it helped and I came out with a better attitude, but really I just tried to put myself back together and get enough energy to finish my day. As moms we don’t really have the option of heading off to bed and trying again the next day.
My little buddy Gabriel is starting to enter teething hell. He woke from his (very short) morning nap and just was cranky and plain old, not happy. I couldn’t even make him smile which is extremely unusual. I know we’ve had it somewhat easy for a while considering he just turned 8 months and most people start experiencing this way earlier, but going on little sleep from the previous two nights just added to my mood.
Isabella has been doing GREAT so far with potty training, but yesterday we had a complete set back. As I’m food prepping for week 2 of Whole30 and food prepping for Sunday dinner (for 9 people) I also was cleaning up puddle after puddle of multiple accidents. There was a lot of frustrated yelling that I’m not proud of, but my neighbor still showed up for dinner (it was a gorgeous day and all windows and doors were open). I’m still shocked I didn’t scare everyone away. I MAY have also been cranky because I was stuck in the kitchen instead of enjoying the beautiful weather with my babies.
We all have mommy moments in our good days and bad. As moms we need to put on our big girl panties, find our inner strength and power on. It may take an extra cup of coffee (or two), but we’ll get there!
We (Gabriel and I) still had a rough night of sleep last night, but thankfully my mood is much better! (As a side note, I just got this tee and it is PERFECT for me right now.)
I hope everyone has a happy Monday!
