Let me.start off by saying today was not necessarily a bad day,but it was definitely one of those where Murphys law (what can go wrong will) was I’m full force. As soon as I was was liking out my door on the way to Sams Club and I spilled pineapple juice on my lovely Darth Vader Tee I knew it was that kind of day. You know the kind. It’s the kind of day where no matter what you do little things don’t seem to go right almost to the point of whereby contemplate going back to bed and starting the day over. It’s the small things going wrong that can ruin a day fast if your let them. But we didn’t! I just laughed them off as best I could. Did I get frustrated? Sure you bet but I refused to let small mishaps ruin a perfectly good day.
I left home I went to our local Library first which was fun. Until I realized I owed over six dollars from late charges incurred MOSTLY when I was sick with pnemonia. 🙂 Of course I was upset for a moment till I looked at the bright side. I could afford the late fee and the money would go to a great cause, improving our library RIGHT ON.
Part two of today’s adventure was the wonderful joys of Sam’s Club. Of course by the time we get to Sam’s I’m not even sure why were there. Oh yes nkw I remember Pizza! When I grab a cart for my stuff I attempt to put on Junior’s cart cover thing which of course takes me what seems like forever. Where are the straps? Oh man! There at home. Well alot of good that does. Oh well the bright side was I just threaded the sams straps threw NOT A BIG DEAL. When we were waiting on out pizza of course Ferrari was in the shopping cart saying “can I get out” for what seemed like a million times, even after I said no. We all know that stage , the repetition even after we’ve said no, in fact especially after we have said no. But guess what instead of losing my cool I just dealt with it and laughed at her even when she almost threw the pizza in the floor. Hey, kids are programmed to annoy us it’s part of their job and a large part of ours is to learn patience. That’s a lesson I am still working on. Today was a big lesson on it.
Oh the park. We had a great time there. Everything went right at the park! It was a great day for the park! Junior loves to swing , if you let him he will spend an hour in the swing, he’s done it several times.
It’s amazing how peaceful the park can be even when all seems to go wrong. Today was tough with both kiddos being sick and myself, but here you can’t even tell. Of course there was one meltdown. I have a three year old princess so I think it is to be expected. She absolutely lost her mind about wanting to go in the baby swing. Which if course she asked me about right as I told my husband we were about to leave. When I said no she asked him and he put her in not realizing I just said no. This is her new thing. She’s a very smart girl way smarter then your average 3 year old. When mom says no she just asks any other adult around.Oh this really tries my patience! And perhaps on another day I may have yelled at her, but on this day all I could do was laugh.
But all I could honestly do was laugh. Let’s be honest wouldn’t we all rather laugh at our kids them yell. I hate yelling it gives me a terrible feeling but it happens sometimes. My goal is to make those times less and less.
This photograph of my son and husband was one of the highlights of my day! Lately I have been thinking it would be Awesome to get into photography as a hobby. I think I could be really good at it if I worked at it.Maybe one day I will take a class on the subject.
I even managed to take a nap during this day where so much went wrong. Also so much went right. I woke up before the koddos so I was able to cook dinner. I made some homemade fettuccine alfredo sauce to go with my honey lemon pepper chicken. It was so delicious! While I was cooking dinner of course I was so clumsy. Jr was asleep in the living room. So of course , I had to make noise. RIGHT? ? I must have dropped a dozen things. I also managed to knock over a container of odds and ends straws and binkie etc ,stuff I need to go through. I was so upset and then I just laughed it off. It took all of two minutes to pick up but it was still frustrating. Then when dinner was almost done WAaaaaAAAHHHHHHH! Anyone who had kids understands. Whenever you are really trying to get something done the kids will always wake up from a nap. But did it ruin my mood? NOPE!
Bedtime was very easy. Hubby handled it and I passed out. Until awakened a few moments ago by my screaming little guy:) . I sure do love him though.
The moral of this story is that
Today was a great day, not because everything went right (because it certainly did NOT) , but because I choose to make it great. Each and everyday we have a choice to make the day great! Everyday is a Great day! I plan to make sure tommorow is even better. We only get a certain amount of days so why waste any being miserable!
