I try to see the positive in a situation. I really do. I try to learn from my experiences and take away at least some grain of wisdom for the next time.
Today I learnt that you should never tell another mom how much you love staying at home with your children. Because after you do your day is going to suck.
It will suck in the way that your three year old decides to have a nap but your one year old won't. In the way that you will try on and off for over two hours to get said one year old to nap. Instead, your one year old will rub his closed eyes and snuggle against you only to turn on you moments later screaming and wiggling like a wild pig, pointing frantically at the door to his room. It will suck so bad that you will put him in his crib, close the door and climb under the covers where you will call your husband and ask him to come home. You will suddenly be so exhausted and tired that you would happily trade your children for a weeks worth of sleep.
And all because you told another mom how much you loved to spend your days with your darling children. Oh, and maybe also because the boy had a whole thirty minute nap in the stroller this morning at 8:30 am.
