Oh what a day it has been!
I don’t have to tell you, but as you know, parenting can be hard sometimes. Oh the imagination of kids and their spirited-awesomeness can leave me pretty exhausted at the end of the day … well, even before the day ends!
We have been having a fun summer. It’s been weird weather, but good. We’ve been to the zoo, to the movies, to the park a million times over, and we’ve spent a lot of time together. This is nothing new for me; I am home with them every summer. But, with the kids being older, that sometimes means they get into a bit of trouble during the day. Nothing serious, just typical fun young kid stuff — they’re having fun.
Some days are more stressful than others and today was on the stressful side. It’s a day where I am frustrated from the start with little sleep, weirdly hungry, and well the kids are being a little extra spirited. It’s funny some of the things we as parents end up saying and today has been a highlight for me with the strange things I never thought I would say, yet … it’s not even bedtime yet and I have actually had to say some weird things.
