This was one of those days: the kind where you wish life had a button for Do Over & Better or even Just Skip Ahead to Tomorrow.

Tantrums and flying food/beverages galore. Bebe afflicted by drippy spring allergies and a heaping dose of Mood. My small boy was practicing Churlish today (doing astonishingly well) and testing boundaries in each and every direction. Also not napping, so it was a straight run all day long.

As you may imagine, by bedtime we were both overtired, weepy, and more than a little bewildered by the egregious progress of our day.

Bebe: What Happened? (a favorite phrase, picked up from me, with accompanying hand gestures)
Mama: We had a Hard Day. (sighing & rubbing Bebe belly) We had a very hard day.
Bebe: (nodding slowly and seriously) Yes
Mama: Let’s work on a better day for tomorrow.
Bebe: (relaxing into a fluffy corner of pillow) O-kay.

I actually have some lovely pictures to share from the rest of our week, which has been fun and full of sunshine. There’s also a new sewing project, a great knitting book, and little spring crafts. I’ll share them soon – right now this Mama needs to dive into bed.

Oh no fun at all, you have my full sympathies. My boys are on their Easter holidays right now, which is followed directly by the Royal Wedding long weekend – eeeek! – they are already very bored and as they are 3 & 5 going on 15 (lots of teenage style moaning) it’s a challenge. A nice one though, I’m making the most whilst they are still so little 🙂 Bethx
