one of those days…

one of those days

one of those days

it’s inevitable… i am having one of those days. it’s been full of starts and stops. eva slept in her carseat for three straight hours yesterday. three hours. not a peep. she never sleeps in her carseat!  but today… today is a different story. i can’t seem to put her down. it was a miracle that i even got a shower. dinner was prepped through fits of screaming. i am typing this one handed because i am afraid to lay her down.



on the good days, i feel like i could conquer the world. on the hard days… well, i wish i knew what to with the hard days. i guess i still show up. i push past the frustration. i let go of my expectations. i might not get five blog posts written. i might not finish my painting. i might not get my website updated or etsy pictures taken. but i still show up… even if it’s one handed typing at 3:30 PM.



it’s going to be ok. deep breathing. maybe some one handed painting. these days won’t last forever. i will miss them i bet.

    doubt there’s a mom out here who doesn’t understand. I remember nights with a crying baby thinking I had to be the only person on the planet still awake. And yes, I’d take those days back in a heartbeat. Well, okay, maybe just the easy ones!

    She’s adorable and you’re doing well. Love these days because although they are frustrating for you as you said they wont last long! Enjoy her, rest doodle and sketch, jot down your ideas for paintings…There will be time, just think how much your other two have grown up. Take care and be patient.

    Ah yes, mama, those first months can be so so hard. Sounds like you are embracing them as they come, which is all we can do.

    oh yes i remember those days. my little one is almost two and her sister is 7 and we still have rough days. and i well remember doing one handed painting. i would lay out a big paper/canvas on my desk and pop in for 5 minutes, throw some paint down, come back later and do it again. still do sometimes when the little one is fussy and glued to my hip. 🙂 and i say to myself this too shall pass and i will miss some of it 🙂
