Sometimes I Wonder…
Sometimes I wonder
Why I get puzzled, long stares from people when I’m out and about…
Then I realize my jacket hood is the size of Texas.
And I will use it. Protecting the recently coiffed hair at all costs. No shame.
Sometimes I wonder why I bother coiffing the hair at all before I work out,
Then I realize sometimes it’s nice to be showered and dressed before the end of the day, no matter what the plans are, or because I thought I had plans with a friend, turns out it was next week. my bad.
Either way, I don’t need a reason to practice good hygiene and normal, cleanliness habits. Taking a shower every three days is old news….methinks so is flat ironing the hair, but it’s all I know how to do.
Sometimes I wonder why it took me three kids to not care so much about a 7am watercolor mess…or orange juice all over the floor, or my makeup getting dumped out in the sink, ok the makeup one bothered me a bit…
Froggy love got a face lift
Then I realize practice makes perfect, third times a charm and I’m a mom – no mess is too big if the kids are playing nicely. unless its a pukey/poopy mess, still trying to master those ones. never pleasant. always make me want to vomit. sorry for the visual. it’s part of life.
Sometimes I wonder why I don’t just sit more and enjoy the moments with my kids
Then I realize I am still a work in progress and I can practicing being still when life requires stillness, a little bit more everyday.
and sometimes those moments end up in tantrums and hysterics anyway, and those are best avoided. so we keep moving.
Sometimes I wonder why my kids can’t be still, are usually bouncing off the walls and seem slightly more high strung than the the average kid
Then I look in the mirror. I get it. They look to me, all the time. I can’t usually stop moving and I’m slightly high strung. I practice being a better me everyday, and they will turn into better them’s day by day. then I think, don’t give yourself too much credit – children are children and I embrace each one of their beautiful personalities – encourage their strengths and guide them. high strung little crazies that they sometimes are
Sometimes I wonder why I spend time arguing with my two year old as to whether or not he can pee outside in the grass as opposed to the toilet
Then I realize, pick your battles. let the boy pee. there could be bigger problems.
nice pink hat, Luke.
Sometimes I wonder why I don’t have more Lego friends in my life…
Then I realize I am 30 years old. they are for 5-8 year olds, but so much fun to build. I will enjoy a Sunday morning putting together Anna’s pet parade lego friends with her. then watch the three kids tear it apart. actually, 3 days later, it still stands. I’m impressed.
Sometimes I wonder how I’ve made it 11 DAYS WITHOUT RUNNING!
Then I realize I ran a marathon a few weeks ago and I committed to giving my bod a little break from the pavement pounding. I will be upfront though – I may not make it two full weeks. I might take the plunge before the weekend. fair warning. and a respectable break was taken. I also realize the almighty stairmaster got me through. I am greatly anticipating my first run back. excited.
I was back on the stairmaster yesterday. 40 minutes, fairly easy. I did a little bit of core work that I might talk more about tomorrow – but my legs are SO SO SO SORE, I gave them a break from any strength training torture.
I’m claiming a rest day today. just because.
