Do you ever have one of those days...of course you do

Do you ever have one of those was one of those days??  Of course you do ,everyone does....well today was one of those days.  My daughter woke up during the middle of the night with her barky seal cough.  By now I know and recognize the distinct sound of it.  It does sound exactly like that of a seal bark.  If you haven't experienced it, it makes you feel very bad for your child.  And the inevitable is always a trip to the doctors office and the sooner the better for her dose of the oral steroid that the pediatrician gives her.  Being that today was Good Friday, I was unsure if she would even be open and if she would have an appointment for me.  I called first thing in the morning and sure enough one spot left.  Yea!  I thought, we will get in early and still get home with time for my daughter to relax and feel better and me to be able to get stuff done. As the quick trip to the doctors office turned out to be more like almost 2 hours with drive time, I realized that I would not be able to get done the forever list of "things to do".  I did get an extra trip to the warehouse store in because it was on the way home, stopped and made a business call and the last minute trip to the discount store to get the last minute Easter items from the Easter bunny.  Now, I have gotten pretty good at slipping these items into my basket with out my daughter noticing. but for some reason today, I just couldn't do it.  Maybe my daughter is getting older or maybe because she was sick, either way it couldn't be done. So, now I knew I had to sneak another trip to the store to try and get the remaining items within the next two days, filled with plans and the threat of the supply of items left dwindling away.  I reminded myself that all would be ok and I could make it work some how.  We got home and I realize that the house was left a disaster, we had plans to make a bunny house, laundry needed to be done, my nails, my hair and spend sometime with my daughter who doesn't feel well.  Stress started to set in, but again, I reminded myself that today is what it is and all I can do is what I can do.  As my day is winding down...I didn't do too bad.  My daughter relaxed and enjoyed doing it, I did get the house picked up, I did get some laundry done, my nails didn't get done, but I trimmed them and filed them, my hair didn't get done, but there is always tomorrow...hopefully, the bunny house got done and turned out absolutely adorable, my daughter tried to eat way too much frosting and candy though, the family got feed, the dogs got feed (yes all 5 of them), showers and baths took place and I even had the chance to jot down about my day... Not exactly the day I had planned or the things I had hoped to accomplish got done. However, I am grateful for what I did get done and the fun we had doing the bunny house.  May tomorrow be a more productive day with more time spent doing the things I want to do.  I wish the same for you when you have one of those days.  Dyan 
 
What I learned:  be tuned in to your child's health - beware of the signs of their illnesses, take that deep breath, be patient, enjoy the moment, prioritize my list and make the time for your children even if it appears that there is none for the fun things too.
 
What we shared:  time together, a new experience - creating the bunny house, lots of hugs - because she didn't feel good, creativity, a new learning task for her - squeezing frosting out of the tube and even got some extra reading in at the doctors office - as we waited for her doctor - making the most of our time together.
