Monday All Day

Sometimes it's just like that, right?

My Monday started with my 6yo sitting up in my bed, staring at me...

"Good morning mommy."

I smiled, "Good morning sweetie. Why don't you come over here for  a big hug."

"I peed the bed."

Sigh. "It happens. Give me a big hug anyway and then go change your clothes."

Maybe an hour later we were off to our morning work out, late, as usual. I didn't get upset...this time. What's the point?

I worked on a custom order, making the same exact sewing mistake at least 3, if not 4, times in a row! Very frustrating, but I pulled it through.

I began an art project with Kurtis only to realize every container of water colors, paintbrushes, white and brown paint, had all disappeared, just in time for me to want to use them. Whatever.

Later, I decided to help Kurtis make owl themed cookies to go along with the owl themed learning we've been doing for his first grade work. I bit the bullet and pushed aside any insecurities of feeling like the working mom who can't take the time to mix together sugar cookie dough from scratch and bought Pillsbury refrigerated dough. I was going to make this happen!!!

As you can see above, it didn't exactly turn out the way I planned. Which is basically the story of my life, in case you hadn't noticed. It's also definitely been the ongoing theme the past few weeks. I try to fight it at times and in those moments of fighting, life feels so overwhelming hard and impossible. When I choose to finally surrender, it all suddenly feels like no big deal. Funny how that works, eh?

I suppose that is the point all along. Surrender.

The cookies taste just as sweet either way.
