Some days are just hard

You know, some days life can be a struggle. I know a lot of people have really bad times and that I'm super lucky, but some days can still be a struggle.

Today is one of those days. I think that I just don't cope too well when I haven't had the much craved for sleep. Just like lots of parents!

Most days, I take it in my stride. Being tired goes hand in hand with the parenting journey. But today, I'm giving in. I'm going to have a sad day.

Then tomorrow, I'll be back to normal

I saw a quote on a page today that made me stop and think.

"You will never have this day with your kids again. Tomorrow they'll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, Mama. It will be over before you know it" Jen Hatmaker

I'm off to play trains with Luke. Positive Sarah thinks he'll have a nap soon. Reality Sarah knows that it probably won't be the case!

  1. How are you Sarah? Having children certainly does have it's challenges, doesn't it? Some days are harder than others and it's okay to be sad sometimes. I think it takes courage to even admit that sometimes! I hope you're feeling better now :)
