I hit the wall .....

Quite literally I hit the wall last week. I was in a rush to get to the uniform shop and it was bucketing down with rain and I reversed around a car into the corner of a brick wall. The wall came out the winner, my car a definite loser. New bumper and back panel will be in order.

It tipped me over the edge, the tears flowed. Weeks of full on parenting and anxiety about the coming school year all compounded and the reserves were not there to deal with another thing on the plate. Another thing that seemed to highlight my failures.

This morning did not go well. Goofy was very sad (clutching onto me for dear life, wailing sad) about started at her new preschool and MiniMe didn't get into the same class as her two 'besties'.

SIL and I had organised a toddler swap and it couldn't have come at a better time. She had JJ today and I will have her toddler on Wednesday. A bit of time out and chance to have my own head space and decide when I did what I needed to do was such a blessing.

So today I am feeling very grateful for lovely friends.

What are you grateful for today?

  1. I am becoming all too familiar with that wall lately... I'm grateful for my very tough head. x
