Today more than any other day...

I really need and want to get a few things done but am finding it very challenging! Please forgive my frustration as I am in tears just writing this. I am hoping that it will help!

Orion got up an hour earlier then usual. My usual time to work on Wild Berry stuff had to be put on the back burner for a few.

I put him in his chair, ask him if he wants a "nana".

He said "NO"!

WHAT!!!! My kid said no, he never says "NO" to Bananas!

He says "Pop Tat".

Fine, pop tart it is.

I sat back down at the computer hoping to work on WB but not yet! Orion probably wasn't 2 bites into his pop tart when he starts crying and wouldn't stop crying until I gave him a hug.

He is such a sensitive little boy!


I can't even have a quite moment in the bathroom! Shame on my for not closing the door all the way, but I didn't think Orion would notice me being gone for just a moment BUT he did!

The bathroom door slams open and he is crying "MOMMA, MOMMA".

He spies his toothbrush and looks at me.

I tell him he can have it, but then starts crying when he notices there is not toothpaste on it!



My "master" todo list is forever growing. Just when I scratch 1 off, I swear 5 more are being added. Everyday I pull at 1 item to work on. Since it's just me and Orion I decided that I would start on his room which houses all my scrapbooking & crafting supplies.


I really need to clean up my tables, find a place for everything and even purge out old supplies. I want Orion to have a room not just a crib in mommy's craft room. I just don't think it's gonna happen today! I can't even walk down the hallway without Orion right at my heels. I did try though, but Orion's not cooperating so I called it quits! I am going to try again later.


Orion normally doesn't have to have his blankie, but today he does! He's looked in every single room for it! I had to explain that his blankie is taking a bath. He understood that but now every time I turn around he is banging on the laundry room door!


Every time I've sat at my computer today Orion is right at my side. Crying, pulling papers off my table, putting his toys all over me, the computer or the table. Don't think that I don't play with him cause I do and I am, but just when he seems content I try to slip away and get a few things done. You should see our living room right now! Books, trains, cars, puzzles and Tupperware containers are everywhere!!!


So here it is noon and the only thing I have to show for my day is a shower for me, breakfast for Orion, 3 emails, 2 phone calls and a semi dried blankie. I hope this afternoon is better!

Maybe I should just give up and pull out yummy Bon Bons, sit on the couch and watch Soap Operas all day!

I think of this poem when I have a day like you had--which are often. You are doing just fine!

What Did I Do Today?

Today I left some dishes dirty,
The bed got made around 3:30.
The diapers soaked a little longer,
The odor grew a little stronger.
The crumbs I spilled the day before
Are staring at me from the floor.
The fingerprints there on the wall
Will likely be there still next fall.
The dirty streaks on those windowpanes
Will still be there next time it rains.
Shame on you, you sit and say,
Just what did you do today?

I held a baby till she slept,
I held a toddler while she wept.
I played a game of hide and seek,
I squeezed a toy so it would squeak.
I pulled a wagon, sang a song,
Taught a child right from wrong.
What did I do this whole day through?
Not much that shows, I guess that's true.
Unless you think that what I've done,
Might be important to someone
With deep blue eyes and soft blonde hair,
If that is true...I've done my share.
