Today sucked ass. Excuse my French. Motherhood is so full of highs and lows. Almost always extreme, to one extent or the other. I felt like I was rocking this gig yesterday - a long nature walk while my baby slept, a visit to Grandma's, everyone ate a healthy dinner & we had fun in the bath before bed. Typically, I don't remember shouting at all. Today was the complete opposite. I forgot my lunch, spent forever tidying the mess that was my downstairs, Joshua woke early from his nap super grouchy, the boys fought while I made dinner, then refused to eat it. It felt like they were screaming non stop for two hours, I have a headache now to prove it. Bath and bedtime were no better, and now I'm sat drowning my sorrows in leftover Easter nest cakes, regretting every decision I made today. I am so thankful that my children are forgiving, that tomorrow is a new day and that they will still love me regardless. I love them more than anything in the whole world, but I make mistakes, like everybody. It's easy to portray, in this cyber world, that we are perfect, but that doesn't always make it believable. I love this blogging community, and find it nothing but inspiring with this mindset. If we were to share pictures of our cluttered kitchens, toys strewn everywhere and children whining, constantly, that would make this a very negative space. I like the happiness, the beauty that is portrayed from my favourite bloggers & instagrammers. Thank you, all, for making me smile.
