It’s Friday!! Did you survive the week? I did, barely. Maybe I’m a wimp but man, by Fridays I’m completley fried out. I mean, this week my 11 month old did throw my iphone at my face (i have a baby black eye to prove it!) Who also pooped in the tub. My three year old lost his marbles at Costco because another boy LOOKED AT HIM. Can you imagine?
And this whole getting the kids off to school in the morning (7:55) is brutal. I’m an early bird and my 5 year old used to be, you know, until school started!! Also, Kindergarten makes him grumpy 😐
So there’s that. The mom gig isn’t always glamorous and don’t worry, the good always outweighs the bad. But sometimes you just need a little something to get you through the week. Here’s what has helped this week:
Super cheap retail therapy– can’t beat the feeling of buying a $12 dress.
The love glove– if my d.c. isn’t on tap, in a foam cup, and over pebble ice, it’s in a can in a freaker. Keeping it ice cold. An ice cold diet coke changes my mood.
Weekly meal delivery with Plated. Ingredeients + groceries for a tasty meal delivered to right to my doorstep. LIFE CHANGING.
Comical relief–reading the story of my life (and future) and laughing out loud on every single page.
Spraying this stress relief spray on my pillow every ngiht. Eucalyptus + spearmint is the best. Maybe it’s all in my head but I swear it works.
