Do you ever have those mornings where you wonder if you put mascara on both eyes?
This morning started with me being startled awake by unnerving silence. My alarm clock was going off. I had slept through it. I rolled out of bed only to slide across an oh-so wet spot on the sheets. Ugh. Eli’s Pull-Up had leaked in a major way.
This morning my child was grumpy. My clothes were wrinkled. I forgot to pack lunches the night before. Eli tore a hole in his favorite sweater. I turned on my car to remember that I had NO gas.
I leaned back in my seat and took a long, deep breath.
Little feet kicked at my seat, “Hey, ‘Duess wut?.” Eli laughed as he declared, “Today ‘dunna be a greats day!”
I smiled. So, my morning wasn’t fantastic. But I got to wake up to a husband who loves me and a beautiful baby boy…albeit in a bed of pee. Nothing’s perfect.
It’s going to be a great day. It doesn’t have to be a perfect day. But it’s going to be a great day.
I flipped open the visor mirror in my car to check my lip gloss only to find I had stopped midway in putting on mascara. One set of eyelashes were plump and full…the other was naked as could be.
My only-got-half-of-my-makeup-on-my-face morning spilled over into work into forgotten deadlines, rushed paper work, a surprise evaluation and a slew of ill students in need of hugs and extra love.
By my conference period, I was eager to pop open a diet Dr. Pepper and to just sit still for a moment.
This morning had a rough start but as Eli was quick to remind me, it’s “‘dunna be a greats day.”
