Do you all watch that show The Middle? If you don’t—and especially if you’re a mom—you should. I know you probably expect way more from me because of all of the pretty pictures you see on this blog, but I’m living an almost-parallel life to Frankie Heck, the mom on the show. It’s scary-funny.
She’s frazzled, has good intentions and most days, is just surviving. I get her.
Yesterday was a particularly “Frankie Heck kind of day” for me. I had the fun experience of working with Lowe’s for the last couple of days (more on that later) and rushed back yesterday afternoon to prepare for a 6-year-old birthday celebration. As soon as I got everybody settled with snacks and headed to wrap presents, I heard a thud that resulted in a deep gash (dang end table!), a night in the ER, and no birthday festivities. While he was getting stitched up, the roads in Charlotte were getting covered with snow, which made for an interesting commute home. . .
Anyway, just a day in the life! Thankful that we got home safely and for good friends that scrambled to make a six-year-old feel special on her special day. (They even texted us a picture of her blowing out candles on a leftover birthday cake. I didn’t know whether I should laugh or cry. . . ) We ended the day opening presents in our bed and blowing out a pillar candle right before midnight. #WeTried
I just wanted to check in today. We are kind of “snowed in”, I guess. So, I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun giveaway.
