When Life Gives You Lemons 

Woke up in a great mood excited for my daughters first official day of preschool and it was prepared I thought. I had her outfit out made a delicious breakfast packed her bag and lunch. Had my workout outfit on was looking forward to attending Pure Barre class. 

Guess God wanted to test me today and I wish it had just been an easy smooth day. Kids ate their breakfast let me get them ready my little one even let me put barrettes in her hair which is a miracle . 

Now my first day of pre school sign had wrong date on it oh well not end of world but something I missed. 

We got in the car and only five minutes after leaving I see my daughter with a barret in her mouth so I quickly pull over and retrieve both from her. So much for styled hair on first day of school but at least I tried. 

Arrive at school in great mood excited for her official first day and was bummed they weren’t letting them play outside being perfect 83 degrees out at the time and lesson time notvstarting until 9am. 

I signed her in put her belongings in her room and dropped her in the morning room and she definitely wanted to come home with me she was not happy at all. I left knowing she acted same way first week or two of daycare and it was gonna be ok. 

Before I made it out door let me know we had a balance I had thought we were all set for August since my husband is out of town and he handles those things I tried to get ahold of him but was unsuccessful he was too busy with work. I told them I’d talk to him and pay later on today. 

Wa kinda thrown off from my little one being sad at drop off then worrying about payment at end of day. Wanted try to get to my class so we were on our way home. 

Literally when we pulled up in our drive way and my husband had called me back and helped get payment figured out. The school was calling me asking me to pick her up claiming she had Lice. Now my son never once had it and she hasn’t been around kids since we’ve been on vacation she’s had no daycare or school so I go ahead and go all the way back knowing my day is shot. 

I ask them to show me and they cannot show any in her hair they show one on a piece of plastic saying I can’t see any because they got mostbor all of them. Hmmm not a happy mom right now. 

I go ahead pay more money leave with the morning and gas wasted and feeling disappointed in the school we chose. Think I will go to Costco since I was on that side of town and we needed milk water eggs and nearly everything else. 

Realized they weren’t open until ten so went to Targwt to get basics milk and water and eggs and figured on the off chance she actually did get lice from one of the kids buy the shampoo treatment for her. 

I wanted to try to save our day but my little one was cranky and although good in bath for me so I could give her treatment I think it burned she was clearly upset after bath almost inconsolable she made a huge mess in her room and decided to through a fit instead of clean up. 

I removed her toys I figured I will give her chance later on to put away once she chilled out. I put on another load of wash and dishes. Decided to make kids a healthy lunch and cupcakes for dessert. 

Was disappointed that the day got so derailed but I had some learning books numbers colors and letters and went over those with Savannah. She really liked the lessons and thankfully she ate pretty good. 

I got her in some panties instead of pull ups and decided to work on potty training we were going to the potty every five minutes until nap time. No pee in the potty yet and now she’s napping with a pull up on. 

I am finishing laundry and praying for a smoother day tomorrow. I never got to Costco or to Pure Barre or to dry cleaners etc. 

thankfully my son is still enjoying his day and he always lends a helping hand around house and with his sister I am so blessed. I just want to enjoy afternoon with kids hope she’s happy when she wakes up so I can go to Costco and dry cleaning if open. 

Parenting second time around I thought would be easier especially since with my son I was a true single parent only parent sole provider mom and dad. But it’s actually been a much more stressful experience with my daughter. 

Not sure if it’s just I am older and have more on my plate since not just the two of us. She is a handful but she’s amazing and I love her energy even though when she’s stubborn and throwing fits it’s draining. 

I have so much to get done before our son starts sixth grade and it’s seeming impossible to get it all done on my own while I haven’t had any pre school for Savannah. 

I hate feeling like I am drowning being a mom you feel like your failing when things aren’t always working out or going according to plan. I know I am probably being hard on myself and that everyone has these days that not everyone is having perfect days with kids who take perfect pictures keep their hair and clothes perfect who have everything handled with ease and home and self looking perfectly put together. 

Definitely spending her nap time praying and cleaning. I wish I could say I was some super mom that had it all figured out but I don’t and today was a very hard day so far. I am going to smile and try to see the joy in my day b cause their is always something to be grateful for and to smile about. 

I can smile because I know I am blessed to have my two children. I can smile because I made cupcakes and once they cool down I will ice them and we can enjoy later. I can smile because even through the rough waters I am learning and I am growing and strengthening myself. 

Thank you to all who are reading this and may God Bless you and us all. I will hopefully have a happy post tonight right now taking a break while my little one naps. 😊🌻🙏🏡
