What a crazy day of murphys law moments!

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 20160330_125522 20160330_125612what 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. 20160330_125707

 

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.20160330_131401

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!

What a day!

Hello everyone .  This is my first post so let me start by introducing myself  . My name is Angela  I am 26  and I have two children  I have a three and a half year old daughter  and a nine month old baby boy .  I think it can go without saying that I have my hands full. I am nowhere near a perfect mother in fact I am the imperfect mom hence the name of this blog. I hope that you can find some enjoyment in this as well as hope, laughter,inspiration  and maybe even just a way to pass a few minutes time thank you for visiting. I will try to post blogs as often as possible and I’m going to do them on a variety of topics but mostly on parenting and also caring for ourselves . I am also going to make posts about different activities I try with the kids or maybe even come up with. Enough about the future for now lets talk about today, So today both of my kiddos are sick.  We made our second (Or was it the third? I really don’t know. Lol.) Trip to the doctors office. This time however, my little girl had a temperature  of 104 and of course the doctor was very mad at me. THE IMPERFECT MOM.For not giving  my three year old tylenol.  Well give me a break lady !Our appointment was at 9:50. We woke up around 9 watched, some Daniel tiger and took a bath and of course left the house five minutes before we had to be at the Dr. No harm came to my daughter  having to have a fever for an hour. They gave her Motrin at the office.  And let’s be honest,  if she would not have had a fever the doctor would have just said that she was fine like they did on Friday, when she was definitely not fine. I don’t know if any of you have this problem but my children have a really great doctor the only problem is that whenever I take them in and I think they are sick the doctors always try to say they are fine and just to take them home give them Tylenol and make sure their noses are clear. This is extremely frustrating especially when I know that there is more than that. I get that the doctors don’t want to just write a prescription for antibiotics  right off the bat Because they don’t want for them to be over them I totally get that . But honestly all they do is tell me to come back in 2 weeks !2 weeks!  2 weeks seriously?  Let them be sick for 2 weeks then do something about it. I just don’t get it! When a child is sick and they need antibiotics they need antibiotics plain and simple there’s no way around it. Just recently I had mycoplasma pneumonia I don’t know if you all are familiar with that but it is also known as walking pneumonia but it really got me bad I must have had the flu or something and I didn’t go to the doctor. Next thing I knew I kept running a 103 degree temperatures for a few days and then I started have trouble breathing when I finally went to the hospital the doctor said that I was lucky that I went when I did otherwise I could have possibly died because both of my lungs were filled with pneumonia. Nonetheless I got to enjoy a 3-day stay in the hospital. This was a few weeks ago. I am a pretty much recovered now. My dear husband just went to the hospital this past Wednesday and lo and behold he also had micro plasma pneumonia go figure. So when my children started to act sick I took them to the doctor on Friday and made it clear to her that the pneumonia was going through I told them it was also very contagious. But you figure that they would know this since there a doctor but whatever let’s not get into that. I am happy to report that my son is feeling better he is still coughing a little bit and you can tell he’s congested but definitely better than yesterday so that’s progress. My daughter is also doing better she is coughing less but the doctor gave her cough medicine too and she has not had a fever since this morning so I am assuming the antibiotics are working No in fact I am praying they’re working because I definitely do not want to have to watch my children suffer with pneumonia that would be awful. No mother wants to watch their children suffer with a sickness. Well I’m sure that I have not handled the situation perfectly I’m proud of myself for being there for my kids when they needed me and taking care of them the best that I could. Even if that meant feeding my daughter pretty much just popsicles today because she has no appetite at least she was fed and she ate some chicken nuggets and mac and cheese for dinner that’s good and I have been breastfeeding my son pretty much constantly all day it helps to comfort him. I’m proud of myself as a mom and I’m not going to let anybody tear me down or let me feel like I am unworthy. Each and everyone of you are good mothers everyone parents in their own way as long as you put your children first and you do whatever you can to keep them safe and happy you’re doing a good job keep it up.
