Anyone want to tell me what happened to my caramel apples? Yesterday I went to go pick up the boys, Cooper and then Harper and when we got back home this is how we found them.
Not sure what happened. It didn’t phase Huddy though…he enjoyed his caramel apple fully.
Do you fix dinner every night? I try. They are never elaborate dinners though. This whole parenting & life thing, well, it’s just tough and some days just get the best of me. Last night we did in fact have cereal for dinner. It happens often.
Currently I am exhausted and stressed and have crazy anxiety and I’ve snapped at the wee Kelleys one too many times and had to ask for forgiveness way too much lately. I may have even dosed off in the car rider line today. Things are just hard sometimes and it doesn’t help when you feel like your lacking in the parenting department. No one wants to feel like they’re not giving their kids their best.
Today I needed to get things ready for my friend’s baby shower tomorrow. And instead of feeling guilty, I gave myself a pass. I have to remind myself often that I’m only human.
So the boys played on their own most of the day. They even made an entire wood working shop. Josh drew some tools for them before he left this morning.
We’re still working on our paper problem. We do recycle, but I am completely aware of how wasteful this is
I’m doing the best I can currently…feeling like I’m failing in a lot of departments, but IT’S OKAY. On those days when my best is “just making it”, I’m reminding myself that this is life and perfection is something I was not made for. Perfection is something we were not made for. I am so thankful and madly in love with a God who showers me with grace and compassion and ample re-dos because He knows I need them.
So tonight I’m wooing the wee Kelleys with The Lorax, pizza and slushies…I have no shame. A guilt induced movie night because I am aware I have completely sucked it up as a parent lately. Funny thing…I don’t think they’ve even noticed much. You have to love kids and their perfect way of forgiveness.
The good thing is…tonight the sun will set and it will rise again in the morning and I get to try this life and parenting thing all over again. Tomorrow will be a better day.
