You know we keep it real here on the ole' blog so I'm going to just jump right in to my crazy life.
If you are a stay at home Momma you are a saint. Like St. Peter should be waiting for you at the pearly gates with a Dunkin Donuts coffee and an all day pass at Target.
I am a working Momma with a 3 year old who is in a stage where I'm fairly sure he is doing everything in his power to rob me of my patience and sanity. I've had some time off work and since the hubs is kicking the working out in high gear for the new year it's been me and the little man for about 12 uninterrupted hours a day. Uninterrupted because he has decided naps are the devil. I'm very sad that he fails to see how naps are mommy's best friend.
Literally, my best friend. I would buy naps presents and put on make up for them if they promised to keep coming around. Hell, I'd even shave my legs. I'm committed to you naps.
Between the pulling of dog ears, picking of dog noses, general whineiness, and altogether not listening it's been a rough couple of days.
Of course there is the occasional gigantic hug followed by a very emphatic "I love you Mommy" that makes all of the crap worth it but I'm having a pity party here folks. Don't interrupt me with your blessings and silver lining.
The point of this rant?
I needed to color. If naps isn't coming around for date night coloring had better show up or sanity is leaving for a complete vacation, and she's not taking me with her. Selfish.
Thank goodness for coloring. Only friend I've got left.
I opted for pretty flowers because well I like flowers. That's it. Very profound I know.
I pulled out some of my Create A Smile Stamps and got to work. Start to finish in the video below.
Even though it seems a bit heavy to me it definitely served it purpose. By the end of it I felt more like a loving mommy and less like a crazy person. Tomorrow's bound to be a better day right?
Maybe I can seduce naps into showing up. If not coloring will always be there for me.
Loyal that one.
