One of THOSE DAYS.
Have you had those days that are just a comedy of errors? And at the end of the day you feel exhausted and kinda like you failed?
Our day started at 3am- when Emmaus decided it was "go time".
Our oven is broken- or something. Has no power going to it.
Our freezer was leaking. (Hubby spend all evening fixing this! yay!)
We got to Emmaus' orthotics fitting exactly five minutes late- not to shabby with the start of the day- (which turned out to be 35 minutes late because the appt was at 9 and not 930 like I thought.)
We did have a lovely lunch with a friend
but the kid was pretty crabby and made this HORRID whining sound all day.
I actually found myself saying "That noise is ugly, and your face is kinda ugly when you make it"
YEAHHHHH.......shining mom moment.
Then I may have harshly told my sweet (horridly whiney, exhausted kid) to
"GET IN BED AND GO TO SLEEP" after putting her back in bed for nap time around 400 times.
I will give myself some credit- because I was incredibly patient at 4am when she was clearly not going back to sleep. However- at 3pm I was one TIRED mama.
It's good for me to learn to apologize for my bad attitude to my child.
I hope as she grows- she doesn't think of me as a mean mom who yells- (I really don't yell often)
But as a mom who loves her fiercely, but is flawed, and has to ask for forgiveness too.
Cause- WOW this mom gig is hard.
And to remind myself that not all days are this hard. Here are a few pictures from yesterday-
we had a great day and Emmaus loved the farmstead!

Learning about Animals with Daddy.
This girl loved the animals.
We topped the afternoon off with My 30 week sono to take a final peak at baby & check for any signs of TSC. This baby has no signs of TS that Emmaus had. We are so thankful.
(And Eager to meet this babe!)
