Like walking through thick, thick, mud

I didn't write yesterday. Yesterday was just all bad.





Yesterday was a day of grey skies, a day of 18 month vaccinations.
Yesterday was a day of trying to keep my tears back so the kids wouldn't see me cry.
Yesterday was like walking through thick, thick mud. You try and pick your feet up, but the mud sticks to your shoes and you can barely walk your feet are so heavy.
Yesterday was a day when the children didn't nap long enough and I was so tired.
Yesterday was a day of trying, trying, constantly trying. It was a day of snapping, and doing my best not to yell.
Yesterday was a day of panadol.
Yesterday was a day when the night would never come, and when it finally did, it was a night spent walking up and down the street with an unhappy baby squirming in the baby carrier.
Yesterday was a day of failure, one of those days you don't want to remember.

[Please don't take a picture]

Yesterday was just bad.



Today has been, will be... better.


Linking up with Diary of a SAHM for I blog on Tuesdays.

  5. You took care of your kids for the whole day and into the night - that does NOT make the day a failure. You were a mum and that is the hardest job in the whole wide world, but the most important.

    At least you saw it for what it was - a bad day - hope today was better.

    Hugs and prayers,
    B

  7. The day was not a failure, it may have been miserable, but that does not make it a failure.
    Today is another day, tomorrow may be better.

    1. Agree (with Sara). It was not a failure. It may have been horrible. And, every mum (and every person) has those days. Glad to see/ hope that today was better. A newborn and a toddler is HARD work. It sounds like you are doing a fabulous job.

    2. Thanks Sara and Julie- you're both right, not a failure, just hard!

  11. Sorry to hear you didn't have a great day yesterday. Hope today is much better. It's hard at home with two little ones, especially when it's raining. Keep smiling and don't feel bad for putting on the TV to give you a break! I beat myself up about that all the time! x

    1. Thanks Anna, I feel like a bad Mummy admitting this- but I am so looking forward to the day when Georgie will watch TV and be interested in it! lol

  12. I hope today Tuesday and Wednesday were both better days. Its tough some days and i find I just have to stop, breathe, take it moment by moment. I know it's supposed to be taboo, but the tv or iPad has really helped sometimes just for a little space.

  13. I really hope that the next day was better. I always find vaccination day hard and doing it when you are sleep deprived is even harder. Big cyber hugs to you. xo
