This is not what we look like today. We look the exact opposite of this picture, actually. My independent, spunky, strong-willed two and a half year old mini-me and I have been at odds all day today, it seems.
It started at 8:00 am with her first time out because the whining started the minute she stepped out of bed. Her second time out came around 10:00 am when she threw my glasses across the room while I was trying to record a vlog to share with you today about everything that's happening in our little family. I just needed three minutes to do it. Just three minutes.
She asked for toast and then didn't want it. She asked for milk and then wanted water. She refused to sit in her car seat after we went to the park and had a meltdown in the parking lot. She's into nap-fighting lately, even though she desperately needs them still. Clearly.
Did I mention I ran out of contacts and allergy medicine so I'm blind, itchy, and sneezy today? Yeah. Oh and Starbucks got my free drink wrong earlier. Do you know how awful that is and how desperately I need that delicious cup of coffee? *sigh*
Praise Jesus for a supportive hubs who is not only going grocery shopping for me after work today but is having a daddy daughter date with N later so I can work on jewelry for my shop's grand reopening on Monday (psst ... sign up for the newsletter here).
I really do love being a stay at home mama. Please don't misunderstand. Just keepin' it real with you, friends.
Today is just not one of those sunshine and sparkles kind of days.
