Just being real

29 Jan

Let’s be real here people.  We all have days like this and today happens to be mine. And really, it hasn’t even been my whole day, just the last 2 hours.

Isn’t it crazy how 2 hours (and 1kid) can make you feel like this awesome picture!?!?

You know when you have that one child who just isn’t getting it and you’re trying so hard to be patient and you’re pouring your heart out trying to find a solution to the problem and then you see your precious child that the Lord so graciously blessed you with is not paying attention to a word you just said and then it happens…

Everything that you were trying so hard to control just went out the door and you lose it!?!

Has that ever happened to you?

Don’t lie.

It happened to me today.. Just a while ago actually.

You know, being a stay at home mama and/or a home school mama isn’t for the faint hearted. With that, comes the occasional bad day or for me a frustrating 2 hours.

It does not define who you are as a wife or a mother.

It does not change the fact that this is what God has called you to do.

It does not mean to give up and quit.

It’s just a bad day. That’s it.

Do you wanna know what the end result of my bad/frustrating 2 hours was?

You ready?

I sent them on their merry way OUTSIDE to play!

I figured since it’s such a gorgeous day in my neck of the woods, why not?!

They stopped what they were doing, tidied up a bit, and went outside.

Not only is that good for them, but it’s also good for me!

Now I can enjoy a little bit of peace & quiet while I get dinner going.

(I’m making tuna casserole, just in case you were wondering.)
