Actually, it’s Monday. But when you’re as fabulous as you are, every day is YOUR day. Go make the best of it.
Mondays are tough. Mondays after a holiday are even tougher. You have to get up, look presentable (preferably in something clean that matches), get the kids up, fed, dressed and in the car, deal with a meltdown because your toddler wanted her white puppy, not her pink bunny, and try to remember your work bag, laptop, car keys and anything else you need for the day. Once you finally pry your screaming child off your leg and slink guiltily out the daycare door, you have to go to work and act like an adult.
It’s times like this that it’s important to remember that your kid’s class is full of parents doing the exact same thing as you. So, get a cup of coffee, sit down at your desk and breathe. You got this.
Sometimes it’s a blessing. When you’ve had a tough day, thinking about your toddler’s silly laugh makes you smile. Sometimes it can be painful when you realize she’s hitting milestones and you’re working on a deadline rather than watching her eat grilled cheese for the first time. Good or bad, we carry our children in our hearts wherever we go; they’re everywhere we want to be.
