Today was a long day. All moms understand what I mean by "a long day". By the end of the day I felt that I was going to explode into a million pieces. If I had time to break down into tears in private without someone coming into join me, I gladly would have! I feel like I sound ungrateful, but honestly I am not. When my day is chaotic and full of yelling, whining, crying, falling, fighting, and messes mixed with my pre-schooler interjecting words that make her laugh such as "underpants", "tooted", and "poopy" at random times, I lose myself to the day. Layers of craziness wrap around me until I feel like I become just that.. or close to it. I am still trying to find the remedy for that. Today my husband earned his gold star. He walked in early from work and took over. I was sent to the tub with my new favorite Me Ra Koh photography book to have a break. It's days like this that I need to create and find beauty in my life more than anything. Something to calm me down, inspire me, and help me to remember who I am and whom I love. Today, for about an hour I had all 3 napping at the same time. With very minor interruption. This gave me time to begin working on a new bracelet that I am really excited about. I think it's a great piece that can be worn all of the time and layered with other interesting pieces.
I also did a photo shoot. My favorite solution to a crazy day! I take a lot of pictures of my kids, today I took 401! I am pretty happy with a good handful of them! Funny, my biggest bugger of the day was not pictured in many of them! There's always tomorrow to remember how cute he is! Sigh....
And since I began this post, this happened!
I hope you all have a great day! If not remember you're not alone! I have a lot of ideas on gift giving. I will be posting about them soon!
