We are on spring break this week.
I spent the earlier part of the week taking care of personal appointments and doing some spring cleaning. Yesterday we had one of B's friends over all day. A magical little girl who my B listens to and doesn't argue with. We had a fabulous day where I played super mom, baking and whipping up homemade play dough. The sun was out, we were cheerful.
Today the rain has come. The children are arguing. I am a bit grumpy.
B misses her friend, she tearfully proclaims upon waking.
I miss her too.
So now they are happily munching breakfast and I'm having a cup of coffee. We will regroup and hopefully the mean mommy voice will be dormant for the remainder of the day, having just used the tired phrase, "I can only do one thing at a time!"
Tomorrow is my little man's 2nd birthday. We've big plans for a morning at the Children's Museum and lunch out. Then on Saturday will host grandparents, aunts, and uncles, which totals over 20 people to feed and entertain. I've made an ambitious menu, which has me a little nervous. I've got a big grocery list to hunt down today, in the rain. Woo.Hoo.
Hopefully my mood will not mirror the weather for the duration, since I believe it's going to be cold and rainy (and snowy!) for the next three days. I've got to dig deep into the reserves for some personal sunshine.
So here I go.
