Have you ever had one of those mornings that as soon as you got out of bed, or still laying in the bed as it was for me, and things started to go south? That was my morning today. I wake up to a text from someone who was suppose to help me out with the kids saying that something came up. As I’m sure most of you can relate to, finding a sitter for 1 child, let alone 4!, on a last minute basis is next to impossible. So I did what most people would do…. I got angry. I thought some really mean things and even said some of them out loud *gasp*!!!! But, then I took a minute to myself and collected my thoughts. I remembered that I cannot control others actions, only my own. Getting angry literally changes nothing. I looked at my 4 healthy, happy, beautiful children and remembered how lucky I am. As cliche as it sounds, don’t sweat the small stuff. Yes obstacles and changes in routine royally suck, but there are so many other things to focus on. So instead of letting this situation ruin my day, I put my momma panties on and rallied. This to shall pass! The day may not have started out, and most likely will not end up, like I had planned…. but that’s ok! I’m going to enjoy every crazy, loud, peaceful, messy, beautiful moment!!!
