This morning was a rough one for our household. Elle used to be such a morning person. She would wake up babbling and singing and was always so pleasant. But honey…those days are over. This girl is so anti mornings. She’s like her Daddy in that regard because me? I’ve always been a morning person. This morning she cried when I woke up her. She cried on the potty. She cried when I wiped her face. She cried when I brushed her teeth. She cried when I looked at her. She cried when I stopped looking at her. She cried while eating. She cried when I put her shoes on. She cried when I wouldn’t let her carry my laptop bag.
It’s true, y’all. By the time I get to work I am just…emotionally DONE and I’m in that Watch what you say to me mode.. But, I can’t let it show because I don’t ever want to be “The Mom” in my office. I’m a business woman and don’t let the stresses of my crazy toddler get to me at work. Gotta keep it professional, baby. Can’t let ’em see you cry.
But venting to my blog readers who came over expecting a post about a lipgloss or something is always very therapeutic. So THANK YOU, girls. This week over at Mom.me I am sharing how I am okay with letting Elle get dirty and I am also sharing some quick beauty tips for mamas. People like to think that motherhood is an excuse to look a hot mess and um, no. It’s not. I am also not okay with leaving the house with yoga pants on because…just, no. I’m hoping that post can inspire mamas to put a little extra effort in caring for themselves on the outside, which oftentimes, can make you feel better on the inside. Sometimes.
Oh! And Scandal comes on tonight. I was such a lover of this show but I totally missed last season’s. I’ve got some catching up to do but since I am insanely behind, I will ignore Twitter and Facebook for like…a few days. Or, you know…a week.
