You Know Those Days

Posted on: December 20, 2011

You know those days, where every good intention is overshadowed by real life. Where your kids fight the entire time you’re out grocery shopping {“I’m not touching you, I’m not touching you!”}. Where your daughter decides to touch the ceiling, which means she literally climbs the wall, falls off her curtain rod and tears a hole in the wall. Where your 30 minute appointment turns into an hour and a half. Where, during said appointment, your daughter {who climbed the wall} colors all over the baby scale while the adults aren’t looking.

Those days where your two oldest don’t nap and your youngest decides to stay awake till 10pm. Those days where all you hear is “Mom. Mom. Mooooooom!!”. Those days where you go to a birthday party and leave more exhausted than your kids. Those days where you’re certain you’d hire a nanny on the spot if you could.

As crazy {and I do mean c-r-a-z-y} those days are, they also mean days where your husband cooks dinner and cleans out your car. Those days you manage to squeeze in a workout, which gives you a much needed break. Those days that end in a complete blur and you’re ready for bed by 8pm… no make that 6pm… but stay up much later than you should. Those days that seem like they might make you go gray before your 30th birthday. Those days are what make life. And no matter how hard those days are, those days are still good.

I can totally relate to those days. I feel like I do pretty good most of the time being home with my kids, but every once in awhile, I just feel like I’m gonna crack and I know I need a little time away to myself. I am just ready to go overboard!! And that’s okay!! It is a non-stop job, and if we don’t rest sometimes, I think we would go crazy!!


Even in the days when you know deep down it’s all worth it, it doesn’t make it any less stressful or overwhelming.

Merry Christmas!

I am all too familiar with those days… 🙂

Merry Christmas!

I can totally identify with you… except I have only one kid. God help me if we decide to have more…

I hear ya. Whew momma hang on, it’s Christmas break soon!

well written and understood!

LOVE!! I love this post! It’s so true 🙂

Love the post! My three are now teenagers and those early days seem to be getting further and further away every day – how fast they grow up!

Keep up the great work (both as a parent and as a blogger!)
