Good Enough

Some days I'm just good enough.  Not shooting too high and not completely failing, but just kind of skating by.  I can be a Good Enough mom in that Isabella is still alive at the end of the day, she may be really dirty and stuffed full of marshmallows, but she's alive and kicking.  And really, a little baby filth never hurt anyone.

My house is overcome with toys that I should have insisted Isabella help me clean up, but instead they lay in piles all over the floor that I continuously trip over and step on.  The dishes are running over the sink and dinner consists of a cheese quesadilla with a side of applesauce.  Hey at least we're all fed.

Some days I just don't have it in me to fight the good fight and I settle for whatever I can take.  Sometimes it's a Bubble Guppies marathon or wearing granny panties until I can find the energy to wash some pretty panties.  Some times it's the run-of-the-mill-I-just-lie-here sex so we can get to bed.  Some times it's eating my daily points value in bread.

Just so long as I have enough energy to crawl into bed and pull up the covers, I'm satisfied to have lived another day.

How are you good enough?

I find that I'm constantly picking myself apart thinking of things I could do better at, be more dedicated to, and for some reason always compare my life/characteristics/personality to others and try to emulate the positive things I find in other people - but it gets quite exhausting try to be something I'm not as well as trying to please everyone else. I am who I am and the sooner I accept that, the easier my life is going to be.

PS I tagged you in my last post for the 7 Facts Blog Award... :-)

Just pondering on what "sex" is....

There aren't enough hours in the day but I guess if there were more than 24, we'd be positively knackered!!

Sometimes I just don't have the energy.. so what if we spend all day in out pjs... so what if I don't look pretty all the time.. so what if I gained 10 pounds .. so what?

Stopping by from SITS. Sounds like a pretty typical day around here. I agree, as long as we all survived, it was a great day.

counting all we had is better I guess than worrying about the toys that are all over the floor, or the laundry and the trash...

dropping by from SITS
