You know some days when you walk into your kitchen and the sink is piled high with dishes (perhaps from the 7 meals you whipped up until your finicky toddler actually ate) AND the dishwasher is full with clean dishes?? Honestly that's like the worst combo ever! It means you have to do work in order to start doing work. Ughh. Unless there is a small chance you can shove the dirty stuff in with the clean stuff and rerun the whole thing, pretending you weren't sure if it was clean- "wait, did you run the dishwasher? Is this clean? Welllllll, better safe than sorry, let's run her again."
It's so funny how some days are just torturous to get through - like never ending craziness of exhaustion, toys on the floor, no food in the house and a toddler demanding "Mickey show! Mickey show! Mickeeeeeeyyyy shoooooowwwww!!!" And then you just forget the pact you made with your husband last night about less TV and no iPhones in the house and turn on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and pull out your phone for a few minutes (or 30) of Facebook, Instagram, weather.com annnnd maybe some boston.com for the important news.
These winter days upon us don't make it easy -- that no mans land between 4:30pm and 8pm in the cold months is rough! Remember the summer when you'd all just frolick in your flip flops and grab a slice of pizza for dinner after the sprinklers? Nope! Now it's socks, shoes, coat, hat and zipped into the stroller blanket (7AM Enfant is my life! Obsessed!). Oh and god forbid you threw on your own puffer jacket first... Cause now your sweating. YAY! Let's walk to Whole Foods for a fun adventure!!
Tomorrow! Tomorrow we will be better! We'll have green juice for breakfast, no screen time and we will intently study the molecule and atom exhibit at the science museum (instead of just going to see the baby chicks hatch from their eggs). You know, we'll do like smart, healthy people things. Yes def, right after I really quickly catch up on my DVR'd housewives episodes and chug this mocha latte.
