It’s 7am and my daughter tramples into the bathroom with her crown on her head exclaiming “I’m a priiiinceeeees. I’m huuungry! I want turtles!” I wish I her energy in the morning. And her desire to try exotic meats. This week she’s requested to eat the following:
- our cat, Midnight
I don’t know what makes her think of eating these animals, but I am looking at the silver lining and seeing it as a sign that she isn’t picky about trying new things.
You’d think that having an almost three year old, I would know by now that I need to be very careful with the things that I say and do, but nope. Apparently I have no self control. My Natushka now has this horrible habit of saying “What” all the time. Every time I hear that word come out of her tiny mouth I cringe. Yet, I still find myself saying “what” constantly. The other day she accidentally broke a glass cup full of water and both her and the cat started playing with the water so I yelled the “sh.” word out loud. Twice. Of course she repeated it and I was mortified. Luckily she hasn’t said it since, but now I constantly fear she will say it in daycare in front of everyone then I will get called in for a lecturing.
By the way, this is Midnight, our new cat. We adopted her around the end of January from a family friend whose three year old son is allergic to cats. I am allergic to them as well, but she is just too cute and cuddly. All she wants to do all day is cuddle with you. Of course, I’ve had to live off allergy medicine and an inhaler to control my allergies, but she is worth it.
Life has been hectic and I feel like I am always busy, but I never get anything done. Ever have that feeling? According to some people that feels comes from a lack of scheduling and time management. Seems legit. I suck at planning things out ahead of time and blocking out my time. I’ve been working on it though. I kind of have my work/blog scheduled out. Kind of. Having a full time job, a toddler and two blogs to run take up so much of my time. I mean, I still haven’t had a chance to do my taxes. Eep! I promised myself that I will do it this weekend (Can you believe the weekend is already here? I feel like it’s come out of no where. I am not prepared!). I guess I will try and get them done tonight. As long as I don’t owe any money, I’m happy!
So what’s been going on with your life recently? Anything interesting to share? Perhaps words of wisdom for this less than perfect mama?
