Yesterday was one of those days that I found myself constantly saying "Stop! Quit yelling! Get out of there! Get down! Don't hit your brother! Be nice to the cat! Put that down! No!-" And no matter what I tried I still felt defeated. Life with a curious little one that has to touch and feel everything is so great, you get to see them experience things for the first time and see their face light up and totally connect words with objects and people. Not to mention hearing Crosby yell Ella's name when he's looking for her absolutely melts my heart. Then there's Ella, our sensitive, strong willed, energizer bunny who thrives on interaction, structure, granola bars and movies. Being a mama to a strong willed child is mentally EXHAUSTING, and when everything you try just to get through the day without all hell breaking loose blows up in your face, you have no choice but to go back to the drawing board and try something else. Of course after a stiff drink and some late night Netflix binging πŸ™ƒ. Keeping Ella physically active this summer playing soccer and trying a hand full of others was a total game changer. Yes, of course this made us busier than we already are but I am amazed at what it's done for her mentally and emotionally! Last week was the first time in months I haven't felt defeated as a parent and seeing how happy she is when she's doing something she loves is something I'll never get tired of experiencing. Like this lovely picture she drew on our fridge with permanent marker when she was supposed to be picking up her pool toys ...."MOMMY COME LOOK! I DREW A PRETTY PICTURE OF MYSELF! THATS ME MOMMY! I DID THAT MOMMY, ITS FOR YOU!!" And you realize last week was a unicorn week πŸ¦„ and you're right back where you started, reminding yourself--it's just the garage fridge, it's just the garage fridge, it's okay. I think this is my favorite Ella masterpiece to date πŸ˜‰, so for all you mamas of strong willed kiddos--keep doing your thing because you my friend are a super woman and tomorrow is a new day.πŸ’œ #strongwilled #superwoman #igotthis #ellaelaine
