"Life" - Sly & the Family Stone

Yesterday.

I woke up today [at 4:42] wondering where it went.

I know I spent a long time doing this:

Then made Peanut breakfast.

Then worked.

Did laundry.

Then Costco'd.

Then worked a little more.

Prepped dinner.

Then carpooled.

Answered all work emails.

Post office.

gym - weights.

Dinner.

Worked on church activity for Wednesday . . .

blah, blah, blah.

I hit the sack feeling ----- empty. Yes, I had run my rear end off doing the above [and believe it or not a lot of other things]. But as I laid down I got all EMZMOTIONAL.

Me: all this running around. it doesn't really matter.
Pita: oh man. Can you explain in 10 words or less?
Me: I wasn't there for Peanut tonight.
Pita: what did she need?
Me: well....nothing. But I should have just chilled with her before bed.
Pita: [silence]
Me: What I do each day "matters" right? Like all the superfluous crap?
Pita: No, don't do laundry until Saturday.
Me: [silence]
Pita: Game of Life Em, Game of Life.

I know we all have crap we MUST get done. I just want to make sure I'm living a life that REALLY matters too.

Did I take time to let someone turn [in traffic]?
Did I make anyone smile?
Did I help without consulting my calendar?
Did I help someone feel even 1% better than before they saw me?
Was I there for the ones I love? [like REALLY there...not on my phone, not watching tv at the same time].

Sooooooooooo

While watching [and smelling] the Pita catch [his] farts in his hand and throwing them in his daughter's direction [as she ran away] seemed super gross last night . . . . . I'm kinda wishing I'd have enjoyed [from AFAR] that disgusting moment for what is was.......Super-unique father daughter bonding.

Here's to enjoying more of the "moments".

I can't throw farts... oh I have tried, but fail every time.

Jealous.

If anyone is their for their daughter, it's you! She is obviously one of the most important parts of your life, and I think you're a great mom! But, that being said, I don't think you need to pick up the fart-throwing. I'm with Matty O...Jealous!

I must say I was pretty excited when I saw your miles ran...ON.YOUR.NEW.TREADMILL!!!

Let Pita know it's way more effective to trap a fart under a blanket that Peanut just happens to be under too!!

LOVE this EMZ! :) GREAT reminder!! :)
PS- my hubby doesn't catch his farts and throw them, but he does release fart-icles in my direction on purpose lol ;)

Remember that as a working mother, you do the best you can. Some days we have more time than others to spend with our kids. But you are a very good mother and Peanut knows this...so even though you felt as though you should have spent a little more time with her...you still had an amazing day.
