My husband just left to take our oldest to school, thirty minutes late.
That's because, between 7 AM and now,
our four year old wet our bed and me,
the cat had explosive diarrhea on the living room wall,
and our oldest dropped a jar of pickle juice all over the kitchen.
So, I am sitting here in a camo t-shirt of my husband's and satiny pajama pants with a hole in the crotch, because it was the first thing I could find when I got peed on this morning.
Motherhood is a lot of things, but it isn't glamorous.
So, now I am regrouping and making a plan (since going back to bed and starting this day over isn't an option).
First, get out of this baggy shirt and worn pajamas. Those aren't doing anything positive for morale.
Second, I am going to bring order to this chaos by doing a series of 15 minute room rescues, with the kitchen and master bedroom being priorities. When those two rooms are in order, the rest of the house seems to follow suit.
Third, while implementing stages one and two, I will be looking for joy in it all.
Happy Monday to you!
