Today is one of those difficult days. Those days that you thought were going to be few and far between, when one child is so emotional that the drop of a hat literally sends her into reels of tears and the other one is having separation anxiety so bad you'd swear it's like you left her for weeks not moments.
These are the days when being a mom seems to feel more like an endless loop of unenjoyable actions, and frustrations, rather than singing happy tunes and making cookies.
These are the moments when you just wish your child could be 5 or 10 or 15, so they could do it themselves, rather than have the debate, discussion, tears and arguments again about the potty and washing their hands.
But these are also the moments when you realize that your little girl will be 5 or 10 or 15 before you can say a word. That nap time battles will become classroom dramas will become boyfriend troubles in the blink of an eye.
That these are the reason's why you are here. Because even if you had thought you were going to work this morning, her tears and minor fever meant she wasn't going to school anyways- so all those meetings would have been canceled. Now you can just scoop her up in your arms, and if a load of laundry doesn't get done, or the breakfast dishes are still sitting in the sink when you are making dinner- it doesn't matter.
What matters is that she has you with her.
So take a deep breath mama.
Then just let it go...
