Parenthood On The Brink

“Oh the joys of parenthood. Where you realize you now have a full time job that requires you to be a referee.” #StuffRareSays

⇓Scroll Down⇓


It’s the brink of dawn
She lets out a yawn
As with clockwork
They’re up and their off
Built in alarms
AND
Loud pouncing feet

Pitter patters
Rush through the halls
Their calls for each other
Pass through the walls

Their energy risen
Without any hault
Not a whisper
AS
Their voices
Fill the house.

They start up early
And keep it going
One eggs on
The others feel wronged

A fright breaks loose
and here comes mom.

REEEEPEAT

We are embarking on day three of a sick Baby Blue. She’d lost her voice, has been feverish and a grumpis.
Nursing her back to health has left me super ultra-drained.
On top of losing sleep over nightmares about Honey Bear…
Oh wait….

Did I forget to mention that little factor involved in my insomnia fit…

I still had to work.

Overstimulated.

Today, I’m just going to focus on Baby Blue, myself, and relaxation. No poem, No story, No musing and no mom humor. Simply US.

But first!
Lemmi take a selfie.
Lmao

Cheering up Baby Blue by having fun with filters.

Do you hear that?

YUP!!

I’m gonna say it…

You’ve probably said it!

Were ALL saying it…

The kids are back in school!!!
Bitmoji Image

 I love my kiddos beyond measure.
We all love our kiddos beyond measure.
It is especcially awesome when we get extra time with them.

But

When your work space and home space are combined…
Getting work done can become…
Bitmoji Image
Quite challenging during holiday breaks.

Bitmoji Image

Like y’all didn’t know.

Bitmoji Image

One of my greatest tribulations during this two week break has been the constant struggle to distract and quiet down the little guys
JUST
To slip into my writer zone. 

Bitmoji Image

Do you know how hard it is to convince a kiddo to play quiet time for longer than 10 minutes?!
Bitmoji Image

The hardest part about being a writer WITH deadlines is…
Falling behind.
The hardest challenge an artist faces is…
Being pulled out of their mode. 

One does not simply sit right back down and…
Create. 

Whether your a woodcarver, painter, writer, musician, etc.
You get it.

And so…

A bittersweet yet relieving moment this morning.
As I watched those cutie patooties walk out the door
AND
Embark on their New Year
And
Fresh start.
Finishing off their school year…
With a bang!

As the house grew quiet, I began to soak in the peace of mind and clarity that fills a steadied soul.  

The lesson:
We ALL need ME time.
Without it we cannot be our best selves.
Even a break from our kiddos
Is crucial 
To be a better parent.

With that said,
I’m going to embark on our first official week of the year
