Today began as one of those days.. You know the ones – Where nothing seems to go quite right. The phone for work is constantly ringing, and your little one decides that the minute you get on the phone it is a great time to start screaming.Your eye is twitching because you are so tired. The baby not only doesn’t want to nap, but decides it’s a great day to get into everything – “The dog food tastes good, right ma? You don’t mind if I dump Bo’s water bowl, do you? I think I might TP the bathroom while I am at it.” Yep. That’s how our day started.
But then, I decided after 40 minutes of trying and failing to get my overtired one year old to take her nap, we both needed a change of scenery and a healthy dose of Vitamin D. So although I technically shouldn’t leave my house where I have access to my computer for work, I decided to strap Brooke into her stroller and take a quick walk in hopes that it would rock Brooke to sleep and improve my mood. And guess what? It did.
I started our walk hoping that Brooke would fall asleep right away so that we could get back home quickly, but the walk quickly turned into some much needed “me” time. I enjoyed the sun, the cool breeze and knowing that Brooke was getting the rest she needed to wake up as the happy little lady that I know and love. It’s amazing what a little sunshine can do for the soul.
Now it is just time to finish up the work day, and I am feeling inspired to go on a run with the hopes of it not hurting my knees (they’ve been having issues with running lately). I will check back in tomorrow to let you know how it goes!
