Ever had one of those days??


It seems like no matter how hard we try some days are just better than others. I try to hold my head up and be a big girl, but some times I just wanna lay down, kick my feet, and cry really loud. I feel like a crazy person because I can't remember a dang thing, even the important stuff just seems to slip in one ear and right out the other. I am just going to keep on breathing in and out and pray that tomorrow will bring a better day.

I am such a lucky girl, I don't really have anything to complain about, but some days it just feels like I am being crushed by the weight of my tiny little world. So many responsibilities... pay the insurance, brush and floss everyone's teeth twice a day, feed them, clean their faces, don't forget to wash behind the ears!! Oh the joys of motherhood, I am sure I wouldn't trade it for the world, I just don't wanna screw it up.

Perfection is in the eye of the beholder.
My house is a mess, my laundry is not folded, but my kids are happy and loved, and I suppose that is a tiny speck of perfection in the midst of all my shortcomings.

I know exactly how you feel. Somedays (actually most days) I don't feel like I'm doing a very good job at being a mom. But I'm pretty sure that every mother feels this way once in a while. All we can do is try, right! Anyways, I hope you have a better day today and just know that you're not alone!:)

Oh, you are so not alone! I have at least one of those days, once a I week! I am like you, just hoping that the next day is better, and it is a chance for ME to get it right! Have a GREAT day!

Thanks for your input on my carpet. I am really leaning to the 1st choice.

Yes I have had one of those days! I think we shared one because I wasn't doing so hot yesterday either. I hope that you are having a better day today. Your daughter is so beautiful. That pouty picture was exactly how I felt.

I have had plenty of those days. It is perfectly normal to feel like that. You are a busy momma, it does start to feel like you have more things to do then time in the day to do them in.
