Ever Had One of Those Days???

Ever had one of those days when...

  • You want hummus with your chips but your husband ate the last of it...
  • Your baby sleeps only in 20-30 minute chunks all afternoon and evening, so you can essentially do nothing...
  • You get a lot of "no's" and feel that you must be doing something wrong...
  • You have a fight with your husband about money because he wants to buy another camping accessory...
  • You fall asleep on the couch at 9:45 and decide to go to sleep early that night since your hubby got your baby to sleep (which partially redeems the earlier fight), but once he puts her down at 10:15 she wakes up so all chances of sleeping are gone until after midnight...
  • Your little one then thinks it's time to get up for the day at 7am on a Saturday... and you feel like crap with a big headache and just want to have ONE NIGHT of uninterrupted sleep...
  • You attempt to go out to eat at 4:30 in the afternoon and there's a 40-50 minute wait, which is too long when you have a 3 month old sleeping baby...
  • You come home and have PB&J instead...
  • You feel like everyone else's life is somehow better than yours even though you know you have so much to be thankful for...
  • You can't seem to get out of this funk...
My answer: YUP. I've had one of those days. Or two, or three. But, somehow, I am reminded of the simple things. The important things. As Scott holds Kirsten tonight while I'm begrudgingly making my PB&J sandwich, I look over at her as she coos, and she gives me this sweet smile. And I realize, LIFE IS GOOD.

WHAT A GORGEOUS BLOG you have, my darling!!! So much fun snuggling your girl today. She was delightful. Don't tell Scott about all of the Jesse kisses. He may not approve! :0)

P.S. Very sweet post. And yes, yes, yes, and yes.
