I’m feeling very blah today. I think it’s the weather bringing me down.

GB1 and I did not have a good morning. Why is it when we’re in a hurry he goes the slowest? I was getting GB2 dressed and yelling at GB1 to get out of the tub and get dressed. We had 10 minutes to get in the truck to go to preschool. OH THE DRAMA! He’s only 4…can’t wait for puberty (please read with lots and lots of sarcasm).

I had GB2 seat belted in and GB1 was standing by his door crying. We had a quick little heart to heart. Me: “Do you want to go to school today?” Him: “Yes! *sob*” Me: “OK let’s go. You go get happy at school and I’ll get happy so when you get home we can be both be happy. OK?” Him: “OK Mom.” Kiss, kiss, hug, hug. I’m really going to miss the days when we can have a simple conversation followed by a kiss and hug to make everything better.

I just haven’t been productive today. I don’t know where all the energy has escaped to. I didn’t make the beds, I didn’t unload and reload the dishwasher, I didn’t fold the towels. A whole lotta “didn’ts” have been going on. The only dids were feeding the kids lunch and making dinner.

Plus I’ve been looking at all these sites and seeing all these amazing women who blog about their super crafty genius. It makes me feel even less crafty. It’s just some days I feel like I neglect my kids when I take the time to make stuff for me.

Enough blah! 

The high point of the day was GB2. He’s got this little baby voice and he’s starting to say more and more words. Today’s word was jelly bean. It’s so cute to hear his soft little voice! I immediately called Joe and in my excitement he thought I was crying. (Guess it’s been that kind of day K, but really, I haven’t cried. Although I do believe in a good cry every now and then. For me it’s usually a Grey’s-induced cry – that show makes me laugh and cry in less than an hour.) Another new word is money. I was surprised when that one popped out of his sweet little mouth. GB1 also undid all the little snaps on the inner seam of his jeans. He was running around looking like a little hippie kid. I should have taken a picture…

I just hope the bread guy shows up tomorrow so I can have some more baked Mexican goodness to cheer me up.

    Not to be trite, but, did you play with the boys? Did you color or watch a movie with them? Did you hug and kiss them? Then you DID more than the things that didn’t get done. Yeah, it’s nice to have a clean home, and get the towels folded, and the ugly blue carpet vacuumed. But the boys will remember being loved and being more important than towels, carpet and a vacuum cleaner! They will remember watching movies and playing with Mom. Picnics on the floor, favorite lunchtimes and trips to the library. So remember, you really DID a lot more than be a housewife – You were a MOM!
    Thanks for the reminder. I think I was just down yesterday. We all have days like those, right?

    We all have down days. Trying to have the perfect house, and perfect children, and perfect craft, and somedays we get beat up without even knowing what happened. So, remember what you did that was good and ka sera!

    That’s what sisters are for! neo
    I’m feeling the love! 🙂 Thanks Nann!

    Perfection is over rated. 😀

    I haven’t watched Grey’s yet… it’s taped. But I’d be HAPPY if they killed her off. I’m guessing no, since she’s the title character. But I’d be happy if they named it… Miranda’s Anatomy. Ok, now it sounds like Porn. Heh.
    Thanks! Sometimes it’s easy to forget.

    Miranda’s Anatomy. Oh geez! That does sound kinda trashy! 🙂 She is my favorite just because she is so tough and yet tender. But really, I am glad they didn’t kill off Meredith.
