Hard Days Don't Have To Be Bad Days
Today was one of those days. You know the one where you don't even know what happened to the day, but it also felt like it wasn't moving fast enough. I am a first time mom to a 14.5 month old named Livi. Do I need to say anymore? Oh and she has learned that screaming is a good way to get our attention, especially when she's frustrated. While she is the most adorable thing to walk (crawl, we are working on walking) the planet, mama is TIRED.
The day started off well actually. We had breakfast, which is always our favorite meal of the day in the Weiss household. Ever since Livi started eating real food, she has decided that she wants EVERYTHING mama is eating at that very moment. Even if we are eating the exact same thing. If it is on my plate, she will find a way to get it. I've honestly considered eating in the closet so that I can eat my meal in peace. Any other mamas out there relate?
Livi naps twice a day, which for 14 months is great and to be honest, it's nice for me to get two breaks in the day with this potsie body. I find that I need at least one nap a day now that she is all over the place. Today was just not one of those days though. I actually had a little bit of energy earlier in the day and was able to make her some GF"cheesy" broccoli cauliflower tots because why not? I actually love to cook when I have the energy. I also love creating new things for her to try, even if she isn't always into it at first. I do have to say, these were delicious and I will be eating them all week long.
Before I got pregnant, I used to cook all the time. I love creating recipes, following recipes, trying new recipes. It has become a passion of mine ever since I became interested in a healthy lifestyle after my POTS diagnosis. I still love to cook, but instead of getting creative with my own meals, I am getting creative with hers and honestly it's just as fun because we eat a lot of the same foods.
After making homemade broccoli tots and blueberry pancakes from scratch and chasing a toddler around the house, this potsie mama is spent. As tired as I am, I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. If you are having a day, I hope this post helps you know that you are not alone.
