Hubby had to leave early this morning, so I got to feed and dress the Brady bunch and cart them off to school. Which went fine until my darling son decided not to go to school in his PJ’s.
Yes, you read correctly. He declared early on that he was not getting dressed and he knows that that means that he goes to school in his PJ’s. (which in real life has only ever happened once, mostly we just threaten) Of course, just as I had loaded bags on the girls, brushed hair, pulled myself together, door open and keys in hand, mister decides to get dressed. So it was another 10 minutes before we left.
I have to shamefully and woefully admit that I felt like a 4yr old this morning and just wanted to dig my own heels in. Sometimes it’s really painful and overrated to be the adult. It certainly wasn’t my best performance today.
Now that I have that off my chest, herewith my 3 things to be grateful for today:
1. The kids were all asleep and the kitchen clean by 19h55 tonight. All we had left to do was pack lunches for tomorrow. Woop woop! Amazing how much you can get done with an extra 30 minutes!
2. A really great friend popped in unannounced earlier tonight and it was such a great surprise. We had a quick catch-up, just enough to tide us over until we get together soon! Do you ever visit friends on the spur of the moment or do you book way in advance?
3. My husband’s unfailing sense of humor. He has an amazing ability to diffuse potentially difficult situations, especially with the kids, by making light of them. I tend to take things very personally whereas he just shrugs and moves on. I am so grateful for that and am sure that our children will learn this from him!
Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday!
