Adorable pic? Maybe. I mean he’s so freaking cute it hurts. I get that.. But let’s talk reality.. reality is, that yesterday morning when we took this pic, enroute to his field trip.. the morning had started TERRIBLE
See 5am his legs were hurting, as they often do, and he wanted an ice pack for them, fair!! But momma.. she was just 8 min from her set wake up time.. and she was angry... angry to be woke up, her mornings were kinda her time for peace you know?
And then came the guilt.. the mom guilt of why did I get upset? Why wasn’t I more patient (some days I am I swear) 😔 but this day I wasn’t.
Wanna know something tho? He doesn’t remember that. He’s not beating me up, holding a grudge or thinking I suck. That’s the beauty of our kids, at this sweet age... they just love
And maybe just maybe we should give ourselves some grace, and just love too. Cause we are doing, the best that we can, in the moments we have, with the sleep we are allotted. Ya feel me momma?
