This morning was rainy and dreary and our moods complimented it. Will was grumpy and clingy and I was short with him. Story time at the library was less than stellar and I found myself feeling rather frustrated. It was definitely one of those mornings that gave me pause for thought. One thought in particular: "I have no idea what the hell I'm doing."
But naptime provided the opportunity for reflection and I decided this afternoon was going to be the start of a better day. When I left our window-less basement to awaken the little monkey, I realized the rain had been replaced by sunshine and took it as a good sign.
For an hour and a half it was just Mommy and Will. No email checks, no phone calls, no chores, no getting dinner started. Just one of Will's favorite things - time outside.
Everything is better with popsicles.
A Tuesday do-over that was so needed and so worth it.
