or a seagull…
And somedays you’re a statue…or a lamp post.
One of the hardest things I’m coming to terms with as a mum is that I’m never going to be on top of things all the time.
We kick some goals – kids are healthy, happy, eating and sleeping well. Finally, the chaos is over and some normalcy will set in.
Then, the next day, all goes to pot again. We wonder where it all went balls up and how the hell the dirty laundry get to reach the ceiling.
I figure, on those days I’m the statue, I might as well take it for what it is. The laundry will eventually get done. Maybe not now and that’s okay.
Surrendering makes everything so much easier to deal with.
Besides, I get to enjoy these cheeky smiles for a little longer…
What do you do on your days of being a statue?
It’s been waaaay too long but finally, I’m back to join Trish at My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday.
