Some days are just like that

This weekend, the weather around here has been cold, rainy, and gloomy.  Unfortunately, the mood surrounding the "Spoons" has been rather similar to the weather.  I We've been moody and grumpy.  The kids One child in particular has tested our patience over and over.  I started the weekend with an already long to-do list and every time I crossed an item off, another item instantly appeared to take its place.  The children have seemed, to me, exceptionally needy - sending a barrage of requests my way so that I have not been able to string together more than a couple minutes of downtime.

However, I am not writing this to whine.  I am not seeking pity and my intent is not simply release frustration (that is just a happy side affect).  I hope this blog will, one day, serve as a collection of memories for my girls, so I am writing this because I want them to remember it.  When they are each thirty-something, they will likely have their own families, frustrations, and struggles.  And, I want them to know that some days are just like that.  Some days are sunny, fun, happy, and full of laughter.  Other days are not.  Thats just life and it's o.k.

I have said before that I used to have a very "June Clever-ish" picture of motherhood and family life - until I actually had a family, that is.  Of course, I love them all dearly despite the incessant neediness; despite the less-than-stellar behavior; and despite my own moodiness.  But, on days like these, I find myself disappointed that we haven't squeezed every last ounce of family togetherness and joy out of our time.  As parents, and especially as mothers, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make sure everyone is happy all the time, but that is just not always possible.  Sometimes, we have to cut ourselves some slack and remember that, as I said earlier, some days are just like that and it's o.k.  It just makes the good days seem so much sweeter!
