My Life. Beautiful, Ugly, Unfiltered.

“There are times when I thought about, on my worst day, just you know, leaving our house, and going some place like checking into a hotel and just being in a quiet room by myself, just sitting in a quiet air-conditioned room, sitting down, just eating lunch, with no one touching me, drinking a diet Sprite, by myself.”-Date Night
I don’t really like Sprite, let alone anything diet…but I’m pretty sure you get the idea. I sent out my S.O.S to Josh earlier this week. It went a little something like this “Astaire and I need a day apart very soon, or else I may end up losing my mind”. Don’t worry though, the feeling is definitely mutual. She is devastated when Josh leaves the house, and if he is here she won’t let me near her. The rest of the day she spends whining for no apparent reason, and if she gets hurt or disciplined then she cries out for “daddy”.
I know this is just a phase, but it still hurts my feelings and I will definitely be taking a break from the madness very soon.
So this is me raising my “diet sprite” to all you moms and dads whose kids may hurt your feelings on accident, or who can’t yet tell you how great of a job you are doing…even though you are!
And here’s to sweet sleeping babies who love to be snuggled and held… and can’t say no when you reach out to hold them.
