Have you ever had a day that started out so bumpy you needed to hit the "reset" button and start again? On this Friday morning, I woke up to a teething boy who was having a miserable little time. So we cuddled a lot, played a little, took some meds, and said "night night" for an early nap. It was at this moment I realized that I was way more stressed than I wanted to be at 9:45 on a Friday morning. That doesn't bode well for the rest of my day, or weekend!
Time to start again. My reset button looks a little something like this:
Don't you worry about how old the magazines are...I'm just happy I have a chance to read them. This is what happens when toddlers make you prioritize life. :)
It's funny how effective a break can be. Candles+eucalyptus spearmint bath salts+Vogue/Elle Decor+warm water (not hot enough to bake lil' Liam)= a relaxed mama, ready to maneuver gracefully throughout the rest of her day.
As if that wasn't enough of a reset, I decided to make a statement for my expectations on this glorious Friday morning and I climbed right into a pair of sweatpants, post bath. Friday, you WILL be the start to a nice, relaxing, family-time-filled weekend and you WILL be enjoyed.
