This morning I woke up with hopes to have a little free time to wash and retwist my hair…
We had pancakes, I did a little laundry, then headed out to run some errands:
12:00 Business Meeting at a donut shop – take the girls along because the boys have a prior commitment.
12:15 As I start my important discussion, Eden starts to meltdown.
12:20 I try to nurse her but it’s hot and she’s not having any parts of being covered up. So, milk with the donuts it is. Ditch the cover.
12:25 The meltdown intensifies. My locs are being pulled and munched on. Have to postpone the meeting. High pitch screams on the way to the car.
12:30 Get in car. Start ignition. Baby asleep before I even back out. Nice quiet ride home. If only I could use this time to read a book or paint my nails or dust or something. Yoga, yes, a little meditation to clear my mind.
12:45 Home. Carefully transfer Eden from the carseat to the crib. Whew! Still asleep.
1:00 Oldest dear daughter says “Mom, I’m bored”.
1:15 Hang up the diapers I washed this morning. Take trash out. Straighten up kitchen.
1:30 Write a blog? Sounds good – I have 30 minutes before we have to leave the house.
1:35 “Mommyyyyyyy! I’m finished” – says my son in the bathroom.
1:45 Second attempt at blog.
1:50 Time to get ready and leave the house for dear daughter’s piano recital. “Everyone, be ready to leave in 10 minutes!”
2:01 “Mom, can I just wear this??” No… again.
2:21 On our way. Finish blog post in car while hubby drives.
2:35 First to perform. Eden wants milk. Wants to roam while she feeds. Meltdown #2 begins. Exit to the left. Outside for fresh air. Sneak back in to see end of performance. Brava!
Now for lunch…
