The life of a Mom and all before 9AM...

 
When your a Mom NEVER think that your mornings are going to be easy.
Ever.
You will just get your hopes up and be seriously let down all before 9AM rolls around.
Monday.
 
This morning I was obviously let down because regardless of what I tell myself I ALWAYS get my hopes up.
The dreamer in me I guess...
 
Husband wakes me up at 5:25, approximately 35 minutes before my alarm was set to go off, this should have been my first clue.
He placed a smiling baby next to me who was radiating more heat than a sauna as she coughed and rubbed her runny nose on my arm.
"She was wheezing and whimpering!" he said as he smirked and walked away.
He knows how I am in the mornings...
I just rolled over and she eventually fell back to sleep.
I then wake us both up when I pop out of bed at 6:10 (ten minutes after my alarm was set to go off).
Dammit I forgot to set my alarm!!!
I change the baby and make her a bottle placing her in her crib and pray that she stays calm while I get ready.
I shower, put my face on, and manage to get dressed all by 6:50.
I pat myself on the back and say, "Ya you go girl!"
I pack up the car, place Stache in his crate, and I am on the road by 7:00.
I pull into Lindsey's at 7:05 and I am all hunky dory with a smiling baby in my hands despite the crusted green boogers stuck to her face.
Lindsey opens the door laughing and says, "Did you forget about my doctor's appointment today?"
Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr........
Yes.
So I am scrambling to find somebody to watch my child all before a cup of coffee.
Thankfully my Husband came to the rescue in finding his Aunt to take on the task.
Women is beyond amazing but I will save her glory post for another day.
So after wasting another 10 minutes I pick Mama up and we are on the road.
Traffic sucks.
I am going to be late.
Drop P off to Aunt C realizing that ummm yes, I in fact have, NOTHING for her.
No bottle, no formula, no wipes, nothing.
The only thing I had was a change of clothes and some diapers.
Thank goodness Aunt C is basically a saint and had a small department store in her pantry.
Left a crying baby and made it to work at 8:35 (I am supposed to be there at 8:30).
 
Basically I could have let the start of my day ruin the rest of it.
But I refuse.
I just grabbed my coffee, took a sip, and smiled.
This is life.
Roll with the punches...
Something I am constantly learning to try and do on a daily basis.
 
Now back to more work because you know how it is when you take a day or more off of work...
 
 
Tonight I am going to Zumba with Mama and friends so I will just let all my steam out there!!!
 
Happy Tuesday my sweets!!!

  7. Kudos to you for letting it roll off your back! I am notorious for letting my bad mornings get to me... I let a bad morning dictate my whole day which is bad news!! I hope baby is feeling better and that the rest of your week goes smoothly :).
