Frustrated at the “to do lists”, the sleep fighting & tantrums & lack of the ability to focus & my internet being so slow & the ‘Mommy!’ & the bickering & the guilt & the stress, I scooped Milena off the couch and hopped in the car for a break. A quiet drive to get some coffee for the long night ahead and hopefully put her to sleep… But then this beautiful, sweet, exhausted child spent the last 10 minutes talking to me about how much fun she had at DISNEY last week and then proceeded to point out how beautiful the sunset looks. “Wow, Mommy, Pretty. You seeum?” I see um, Mimi. Took my breath away.
I promise to pay more attention.
