yesterday was as perfect as it could be for a family of a 4 year old, 2 year old, and a 10 month old.
i had a schedule, i followed the schedule loosely (thereupon spending some good quality time with my kids AND getting some housework done), and i enjoyed my day SO much. i got a couple of pictures of the kids (nothing postworthy. it was just the mere fact that i was able to). we played outside. we played inside. we spelled the girls’ names. dane was happily occupied. i learned that brin knows all the letters in her name. maya played supery dupery great with both brin and dane!
today? today there was no schedule. there was lots of tears and screaming and yelling and sobbing (fake, i might add). at one point, i called my friend, jenny, just to say, “i can’t do this!” i almost called chris and told him he couldn’t work later. he had to come home NOW!
but i took a breath, breathed a pray, and just kept perserving.
i honestly don’t think a schedule would have fixed today, but it might have made things a TAD bit better!
note to self: even if i’m tired, follow a schedule.
