It’s Official…I’d like…

It’s Official…I’d like…

…to have a girls’ night with Olivia that doesn’t include me stepping in poop or her pooping in the bathtub…

…to have a girls’ night with Olivia where we can cuddle in bed and watch a movie without her pinching me or getting up 100 times…

…to have her get asked over to a friend’s house for an impromptu playdate after school…

…to watch her hop on her bike and take off with her friends…

…to be able to read a chapter book and tell me how much she loved it…

…to let me paint her fingernails and toenails and wear flip flops…

…to eat a meal without it looking like World War II around Olivia’s space…

…to not have to change her diaper anymore…to have her use the potty 100% of the time…

…to have a pity party for myself today…because it actually helps me to feel sad for a day or two for all that I’m missing…to really feel it…and then to get over it…

It’s Official…I’m having one of those weeks…

Fortunately, I look at her face and hear her say “I love you Mama” and I feel better.

  1. You too girl! I’m so having one of those weeks myself…actually maybe two weeks now. I usually get over it pretty quick but for some reason my pity party has been hanging around. I hope you feel better soon girl! It’s not easy but it sure is worth it! I just try and remember that whenever I get pretty down. I’ve been crying atleast twice a day lately. I hate it bc it is so not like me…the upside is…I’ve been happy too at the same time since we have her walker now and she has new signs!!! I know I’m driving my hubby crazy…but he is sooo good about it. This is a note to our pity parties: Hurry up and get outta town don’t you know we have s*** to do!! Love you girl! Sending you lots of hugzzzzz

  2. That is a lovely picture and she sure has a beautiful smile!

    I’m with you on most of those statements. I have heard Gracie say “I love you” 3 or 4 times, but I would love for her to say mama!!

    Keep looking at that picture because I know it will make you feel better.

  3. Both you and her deserve all of those things and more. I think that maybe one day you’ll hit some of those milestones. But, for now, just keep holding on. And look at her beautiful face! She looks so happy in that picture. That’s because you are so good and have given her all that she needs.

  4. I agree, it does help to feel the sad. It sucks, but it also has a way of enhancing the happy…

  5. Good job Tiffany on allowing yourself to have a bad day (week). It’s not very helpful if we “beat ourselves up” when we’re already down. A lesson I am learning.

  6. Your honesty is always impressive.

  7. Its official that you are an amazing mom. Unfortunatly the good comes with the poo! Wallow in the poo for a bit and then go get a pedi, a glass of wine and a good nights sleep and it will be better soon.

  8. If it helps you to feel better, she has been doing very well at school this week! 🙂 Not to mention, she has looked ADORABLE in all of the new spring clothes!

  9. You have a right to have a pity party. We all know how much you love her and how much she has taught all of us through your words and pictures!

  10. You should be able to vent and not feel guilty about it, that’s what our blogs are for! We are human and every day we are still figuring it all out. But when you get down, think of how far you and Olivia have come, and how much more you two will achieve. And then go have a glass of wine.

  11. Yes. This is good therapy. I agree on pity parties! Sometimes, a lot of good comes out of it, sometimes, not. Either way, sooooo needed. Thanks for sharing the pity. I will go do the same now. *wink*

  12. I made a special trip to the store tonight….for three things: coffee creamer, powdered donuts and winecoolers….tells you what kind of week I’m having too.

    Good for you for recognizing that you are allowed to feel this way!!

  13. It’s official…sometimes pity parties are necessary. They just are.
