The sleep deprivation has been real in this house.
Fi has been sick. Which is bad enough but she’s also getting closer to what I am told “threenager” attitude, which amazes me because I honestly did not think my child could possibly be shadier. I was quite wrong.
The part I struggle with the most is that I know that she smart… SO SMART.
So when she very obviously fake crying or asking where every single toy in her toy room goes as she “cleans” up, I get so frustrated and have to remember that she is only 2 and she deserves an off day to just whine and stomp.
To be real…we all do
So while I could give some excuses on why this post is mad late, I wont. I am just tired girl. If I had to guess…I think I have gotten a total of 11 hours of sleep between Sunday and Tuesday. I am in no place to do any mathing though so that is just an estimate.
Which I feel like I have done a good job fooling the world around me into thinking I am a well oiled machine. Seriously.
- The clothes are washed
- Dishes too
- Groceries Purchased
- and my hair is washed
so excuse me while I tuck in my cape.
Actually–I missed trash day. TRASH DAY. we have so much trash. Sad part is — We were home! home! Fi wasn’t feeling well so we stayed in the house all day and missed the DAMN garbage truck.
Which is small right? I know it is yet my anxiety is on 10 specially with the weather being all bright and beautiful. Everyone is taking walks around the neighborhood…and seeing my full trash can baking in the sun. Someone remind me on Friday.
The one thing about being a single mom is that you can’t let your personal disappointment show. Even if it is as small as missing trash day, or forgetting to buy almond butter.
I do not think it’s a bad thing though. I think it helps me move on and now dwell.
Still I wonder- Am I portraying a realistic person to my child? Can she see through my “everything is fine” cover ups? I mean yeah shes only 2 but this is something I should be conscious of right?
Great thing is, we talk a lot. I mean, it’s just the two of us most of the time. So I wanted to see our little world through her eyes and it reminded me …
She just wants to bounce around, eat snacks, and be happy.
So… chill out. You got this.
In case your past couple of weeks have been like mine here are some pick me ups that saved my sanity. Hope they help.
Hello Fresh – Easy Dinners.
I know some people are skeptical about things like this and if they are worth the price. YES! it is. The only things I would change: my cookware. It’s fantastic. (full review with photos to come)
Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter.
Proceed with caution: I go through a jar a week. It’s $12 a jar at my local grocery store. I love it with green apples or on rice cakes. You can make a banana sandwich. If you want to keep it simple… grab a spoon, a jar of JAB, and a glass of wine and cuddle up
Y’all funny as hell.
Outside of Trump…That is quite embarrassing.
Mmmmmmmm. What’s that smell you ask ? Essential oils and water, misting peace into my home. My favorite oils are lavender and eucalyptus. It’s great while I sleep and when I meditate. I love it.
