it was one of those days

A wet, indoor kind of day.
We stumbled through our rhythm.
Breathe in: keep calm.
Breathe out: carry on.
Two green teas were in order.
Pyjamas were worn to playgroup.
"Will I be a man when I'm seven? [No, not for a long time] Good, because I don't want hair on my bum".
I was given the evil eye on more than one occasion.

Someone discovered that high pitched shrieks are an easy way to get people to stand to attention.

Someone else decided that just-folded laundry makes an excellent patchwork tent.

Something needed to be done immediately to remedy they grumpy clouds circling over my head:

Smoothies and kale chips for dinner.
Elizabeth Mitchell's Keep on the Sunny Side.
Bubble bath at 4pm.
Cuddles, kisses, milk and a few chapters from A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh
6:30pm bedtime.
A little yoga, a cup of chamomile, a bit of crafting.
9:00pm bedtime.

Oh, and did I mention a little dip into the chocolate stash?

If you find a solution to the lovely vocal shrieks...please let me know! I have a 12 month old that does this all day every day for lots of reasons. The "Oh isn't she vocal" comments are very regular and the sideways looks are also a common occurence. Well done to you for remaining calm....AND still finding craft time. :)

At least Noah's hairy bum comment must have been a funny point in a bad day - and one you'll probably remember forever!

Laughed my way through this post (with you, not at you!!!) as we all know THOSE days. You did well to muddle it out at home and as you know I would have needed more than two green teas to make it through! xo
