Some Days.

Some days.. we never make it out of our pajamas until it's time to take a bath and put on new ones. 

Some days.. the only vegetable consumed is the one Mama sneaks into her morning smoothie which she graciously shares with the toddler when prodded. 

Some days.. it seems Curious George episodes are on repeat from lunch time until dinner time. 

Some days.. it feels as if Daddy can't leave work fast enough. 

Some days.. ice pops and Oreos are used to soothe bumped foreheads and bruised knees. 

Some days.. voices are raised tempers are lost and hands are swatted. 

Some days.. toddlers will be toddlers and Mamas will be cranky. 

Some days.. the dishes remain dirty and the laundry piled high and unwashed. 

Some days.. dinner is left to your own devices. 

Some days.. happen. They're not the norm but I'd be lying if I said they didn't. 

But those days? 

I wouldn't trade them for the world. Because they make the good days, the great days, that much sweeter.

  1. So very true that those days make the other ones seem great. Those days happen around here a lot lately it seems. It makes me feel badly, but I know it's just a phase. And I just look forward to all the great moments in between. I LOVE this post, AP!

  2. I hope that one day when (and if) I ever have kids, that I'm half the mama that you are--you're precious. C is so lucky to have you. I love this post, sweet AP :)

  14. I love this post AP! I have been working so hard to enjoy those "some days" so much more and laugh off the times that the Dora and Toy Story "fruity snacks" are the only "fruits" a certain toddler might eat one day. I actually got a little teary reading this post - you said it so well!

  17. I hear you, girl. I've been in a funk for about three days now - I blame grey skies - and am anxiously awaiting those sweeter days.

  18. amen, sister. We all have those days & they are rough! It's just part of this season of life! Even when the toddler makes me want to pull my hair out, I know he will big soon & I will miss this time.

    And I say well done with the veggie hiding in a smoothie...I can't even do that with G! Our veggies are french fries. Mom of the Year!

  19. This is just so perfect! I've had those days. As I'm sure we all have...and sometimes it just sucks, and Husbands can't get home quick enough. And I look forward to getting that "Leaving Now" text from him, and then I count down the 20 or so minutes till he pulls in the dive. Which is why I'm not looking forward to next week when Husband goes to Texas from Monday-Wednesday for work. Oh, I might freak out. Gah! Lets just hope that Chloe is a good little girl for mamma. LOL! Thanks for this post! Thank you very much!
