Having a Monday on Tuesday...

The morning has not gone well...5 am wake up, demanding chocolate for breakfast, and tears for the brief amount of time it takes me to take a shower...whew! Luckily we have ballet class to cheer us up but until then I think I better unplug for the day and try to live by this excellent quote via Torrie:
But then I remind myself that perfection has no place in parenting, and "for life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday." -Kahlil Gibran  

Feeling the same way this morning? Here's an excellent article here on how being a "good enough" parent is actually pretty great via Blooma
See y'all tomorrow...
xoxo, M


  1. Ahhh, I need to be reminded of my own post this morning... thank you. =)

    A tough one on our end as well... missing homework, tears, mean words, more tears & apologies over the mean words, late {agaaaaaain} to school...

    Have fun @ ballet, and good luck with the rest of your day!

  2. Tears in our car this morning were over not having an equal amount of Goldfish between the two boys. I suppose I should be reevaluating that food choice in the morning, but I'll do that later over a cocktail.

  3. Oh I like that quote and I like the idea of good enough parenting. It's been a couple of days!

  4. Hang in there, Mama! Parenthood is such a roller coaster ride, isn't it?

  5. that is a fabulous quote by miss torrie!

    perfection has no place, really, at all.

    hope tomorrow is better. xo


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
