This is Ellie’s Kiss cover band audition look achieved with black frosting and tears applied at 9:24 am.
I should’ve cashed in my chips when I woke up to Ellie’s red stained legs and Jello between her toes.
Should’ve folded when there were no lunch makings to construct something to send with boys for co op.
I should’ve thrown in the towel when Tess had put on 4 different outfits and pulled out 3 hair-dos in an hour.
The flag should’ve been waved when Monday ate 3 different yellow diapers. Yellow, folks.
Should’ve called it quits when two of those diaper’s contents showed up on the front AND back of Gemma’s outfits.
Should’ve pulled the curtains when I found blue sparkly toothpaste on the mirror. And the toilet seat. And wall.
Should’ve given up when I discovered Nutella on my Chapstick after I had put it on.
It was one of those days. The kind where nothing goes right and it’s only 10 am. If I was allowed them, I surely would have phoned in a Personal Day. But alas, my benefits package doesn’t account for those and I have already used up my mental health and sick days – having a baby does that to a person.
So I kept on going. I cinched my belt, brewed some caffeinated tea, took a deep breath and restarted the day at 10:15. It was that or sit down and cry. Some days that helps but today wasn’t one of them so I just kept on keeping on.
Tomorrow we’ll try again.
Wish me luck.
you are boss, Annie.
And encouraging me to finish up my cranky thesis… best get back to that 🙂
jello between the toes? how did that happen… common, I need details.
Black frosting and tears? Poor Ell Bell needed some good lap time, kisses and a story… wish I was there:/
I Love Your Blog, Annie. So Much.
Jello and black frosting sound really good right now.
She wishes you were here too! Jello between the toes happens when jello from dinner gets left out on the table and she is the first one up.
I will keep that in mind for your next visit.
