Some mornings just don’t work. If you’re a working woman (or man) you know what I mean. (and that includes Stay at Home Moms… you just work at home). You don’t get any sleep, the coffee maker is broken, there’s nothing to eat in the house, your hair won’t fix the way it usually does, your make up looks like a clown attacked you on the way to work and oh yeah, welcome, Monthly Visitor, glad you showed up this morning…. you know the drill. It just becomes one big fiasco.
And then there are mornings like this morning.
I can’t pretend like it’s been a perfect morning. In fact, if you’d asked me anything about an hour ago, I would have told you exactly where to shove an uncomfortable object. J is having breathing problems… again. We took him for a chest x-ray yesterday afternoon and should have the results of that sometime today. He’s wheezing. He’s coughing. He cries in his sleep from all the congestion. It breaks my heart.
As a result of his problems, I slept in the recliner last night to give him a little more… I don’t know the word. Angle? Basically so he could sleep sitting up… or at least raised a bit. I think he slept pretty good and I actually managed to get more sleep than I thought I would. Of course, I was thinking I wouldn’t get any, so the four I got seemed magical. (even though they were spread out over a seven hour period). J woke up a little before 5 and couldn’t be coerced back to sleep. So I got up and filmed a VLOG, thinking “To hell with it. I don’t have the mental capacity to type this morning.” I know, right now you’re totally wishing you could see that fiasco. Me. 6 am. No make up. Disaster. You’re gonna hate that you asked for this:
Anyhow. Around 6:30, J fell asleep. He nursed and fell asleep. So took him back to the bedroom and let him lie in bed with Husband. They slept soundly while I showered, got ready for work, made coffee and then ultimately, sat down at a little before 7:30 to write this post. That’s right. I had Momma Time in the midst of all this madness. And you know what? It was awesome. It wasn’t long. About fifteen minutes after I started this, I had to go get a shrieking J, but those 15 minutes were magical. It almost makes me want to start getting up a little earlier in the mornings just to have these moments. … I said almost. I’m not that far gone yet.
So now everything is ready, including myself and J, and I’ve posted a blog post on top of it. Not too bad for a morning that started out as a disaster, right? Once I get to work I’m going to post some pictures of the world’s most fantastic necklace. Don’t believe me? You should. Go here for a sneak peak: TINA TARNOFF Are you thanking me yet? Wait til I tell you more from work. Trust me when I say you are going to fall head over heels in love.
OMG!!!! Sorry, I have to add something AMAZING that happened this morning. Houston, we have lift off. My son. My little itty bitty baby boy… crawled. He CRAWLED!!!!! I can’t stand it. He’s so excited that when he moves he stops, flips over, and laughs. I love it. I stayed home for a while just watching him. And NOW it’s a good day.
