today was a hard day to be a mother. or a maid. or a chef to a teensy tiny picky little feather of a baby. today was just kind of a hard day, you know?
after surviving the crisis that was this entire day from 3pm on, i have a little gratitude list to share with you. because during the worst of it (as i wiped throw-up from the walls) that's what i was FORCING myself to think about.
without further adieu...
. i am grateful for my sweet friend brooke who invited us to lunch today. i met her at the grocery store. she saw me shopping with evie a few months ago and wheeled herself and her brand-new baby over to say hello to me, a complete stranger. how cool is that? she is wonderful.
. i am grateful that despite this terrible evening my dinner was delicious.
. i am grateful for Ellen. i used to be grateful for Oprah, but now I am grateful for Ellen.
. i am grateful to be a mom. gosh, it's hard sometimes.
. i am grateful for the swifter wet jet and the vacuum and especially for lysol wipes. i have a testimony of lysol wipes and I know they are true.
. i am grateful for mickey mouse. he is a good good soul and i'd be lost without him.
. i am grateful for my mom. i am grateful I can call her mid-crisis and sort of half cry/half yell into the phone. i am grateful she had FIVE children and i am one of them. bless her.
. i am grateful for greek yogurt and I am grateful evie is loving whole milk. sing praises!
. i am grateful everything evie threw up on this evening was washable. myself included.
. i am grateful for my sweetest g. i am especially grateful to him for being my friend.
. i am grateful that the first thing evie wanted to do after the barfing was over was give her mama a kiss. i mean, i went ahead and declined, but what a sweetheart.
. i am grateful to know that at least she is a good sleeper because I get to put her to bed and have the next 12 hours off!
. i am grateful for the bachelor. i mean, really. god bless you, chris harrison!
