Today was a bit of a crazy day! Up at 6:00, kids at the bus by 7:05 and I was sitting at my desk by 7:30. Work was fine and I was back home by 4:45. At about 4:20, I received a text message from Matt saying that Caleb was in tears and devastated! Caleb is obsessed right now with his DSI and his action replay. I guess his action replay broke, and he felt like the world had ended. I pulled into the driveway and consoled a sobbing 8 year old. I was getting out of my work stuff while trying to hug a crying child and telling him that everything would be fine. Gave dinner to the kids and then helped all three with their homework. Anna was supposed to have her semi-final game for soccer, but it was postponed until Friday. All of the kids have showered and are ready for another day! Whew! I still have a pile of laundry to do and floors to vaccuum, but thought I would take a bit of a break!
As I sat at my computer, I took a moment to breathe, and started to think. I looked at myself, and thought how the heck do some
moms do it?? My hair is pulled back into a ponytail, no makeup on, some old jeans and a pullover sweater. Definitely not gorgeous or made up! I sometimes see moms walking around dressed to the nines; their makeup perfect and not a hair out of place! I'm most definitely not a fancy person and I never wear makeup, but I would still like to know their secret. I like that I'm not scared to get dirty with my kids and I like that, most of the time, I'm quite content in my blue jeans but I still sometimes wonder how it's done? I guess for now, I'll just have to wonder!
