I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but life has been busy. Chaotic, actually. I've been telling myself, "just another week or two and it will slow down." Then a week or two goes by, and I tell myself "next month will be better. We'll have a better handle on everything."
You know what, folks? That's a load of crap. It's never going to slow down, and I'm never going to get a better handle on everything. The truth is that I used to be better at just accepting the chaos and going with it.
I was looking back at my blog posts over the past year or so, and I really like some of the things I was writing. One of the things I've missed are my "Mommy Fail" moments. They're a prime example of reveling in the chaos instead of fighting and resenting it. So, I'm bringing them back.
Mommy Fail #212: This weekend, I was in the middle of doing something important when my toddler started pestering me for a snack. In frustration, I went to the cupboard, pulled out a box of crackers, and handed it to him, and then I went back to what I was doing.
A few minutes later, I checked in to see how he was enjoying his snack. And...it was gone. I don't mean the crackers, I mean the whole box. I've searched high and low, but I finally had to accept the fact that there's an entire box of Wheat Thins missing somewhere in the house. That's what I get for trusting my toddler with snacks...lesson learned.
What about you? Do you have any good Mommy Fail (or Daddy Fail or Life in General Fail) moments?
