Blazer and Shirt: Gap Outlet, Pants: Old Navy (exact), Bracelets: David Yurman and monogram bracelet was a gift.
I typically consider me and my boys to be the three muskateers. We have a great time...we go fun places, we read, we laugh, we play....and I'm also pretty good at handling toddler temper tantrums and melt downs. All of this is usually a recipe for great days together.
Monday was not one of those days. I'm not sure what happened, but it was one of the worst days of my parenting life. Monday was a day that (magically) had nothing on the calendar, so I was excited to take full advantage of it by unpacking from this past weekend, repacking for Thanksgiving, and getting lots of playing time/reading time/baking time in with my babes.
A really, really long story short...there was blood all over the stairs from a fall that sent Walker's teeth through his lip, poopie all over the boys' room from Walker flinging his diaper off during nap and then rolling around on the floor, no one napping, no one listening, and everyone arguing over something...it was the strangest day of my life, and I was done.
I told the boys that we needed to say a prayer, and honestly, once we did....everything seemed to turn around. I got a Diet Mt. Dew from Bojangles (only drive-thru place that serves it), I started changing the way I said things to the boys, they started getting along, Noel listened later that night the everything-I-needed-him-to say responses, and my friend, Mary Beth sent me a sweet text that said she was thinking about me and that she thought she should sent a message my way.
So I guess the moral of the story is....don't wait for tomorrow to make the day a better day. I kept thinking, ok tomorrow will be better...but no! I wanted today to be better! (and it was!) Also, if you have an inkling that someone needs your help or needs a phone call or a text...do it! do it! Because you're right, they do need it!
This story has nothing to do with this outfit...except that I like really like plaid shirts...and I really like how this story ended. So there, that's the connection. :)
Happy, Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!!
