To drop off the kids to daycare with shampoo foam dripping down your shoulders (congrats you got that far!),” brushing” your teeth with gum, shower every third day and the only hair many of us get is with an abundance of dry shampoo – seems to be pretty basic for many of us. Well today was definitely one of those days, and even though I finally took a shower after God knows how long, threw out the garbage that has been laying around in the hallway for more than a day and you know, tried to at least play the part of being myself, I still feel like I’m ready to delete this day from my calendar. Not my strongest mum day today.
Luckily, I’ve been busy doing things all day, and I’ve been more productive than I have in weeks. Thank you so much for your support. Your messages made me cry many times today. Not because they were sad (most were actually pretty funny and really made me feel less bad), but because sharing is caring, and I felt so happy and privileged to see how much we all want to be there for each other when we sense it’s needed. It may be a cliché, but it’s true. At least for me. I hate feeling alone, so just knowing that there are more of us out there who fail every now and then, makes my mind feel lighter and hopeful.
