It's the first day of a brand new month. It's such a renewing, refreshing feeling, is it not? I like to pretend on those days that I get to start fresh. That I can create new goals for myself, for my family, heck, for this blog this month.
I can even create a new(er), slightly different me. In this case, hopefully a skinnier me.
But no matter what new month it is, I always tell myself at the very beginning, "I can be a better mom this month."
I'm going to listen more. Engage more. Slow down more. Sing more. I'm going to be better.
Today? I took more pictures of the Littlest One because I suddenly feared that at just three short months old, I didn't have enough pictures of him. So? I staved off nap time for a few minutes longer (Mom Fail #1)...
And squeezed Maclane into the Bumbo seat for the very first time (Mom Fail #2). I mean, who in their right mind thinks this looks like a comfortable seat? He certainly doesn't.
But? I delayed nap time all the while snapping a few extra pictures and paid for it soon after with an incredibly cranky baby who wanted nothing more than to be snuggled while Big Brother napped.
Somehow, despite those two Fails, that's still a Win in my book.
Day one down. Success.
