Life is not always rainbows and butterflies… and that’s okay.
Sometimes you have to do what you have to do… and make the most of it.
Yes, of course, you take breaks, you give the kiddos attention, and you cross off your to-dos. Yet, we know what happens to the best-laid plans…
And inevitably, when it goes off course, you must man the wheel to ensure you don’t capsize. Sometimes, the best we can do is stay afloat and ride the waves through the storm.
Once, I had back-to-back meetings, and the weather wasn’t lovely so I kept the kiddos home rather than have to go into-the-out.
Tavie had had enough and wanted attention. I, unfortunately, couldn’t grant her the amount she wanted, and it was nap time to boot.
She proceeded to chuck Goldfish crackers at me while I was on a meeting — she was thrashing and flailing while I was smiling and muted on camera. Before the end of the call, she had curled up angrily on the floor and fell asleep surrounded by her sea of baked snacks.

It doesn’t happen like that every day.
She wasn’t mad at me when she woke up. We played together before bed, chatted, cuddled, and spent quality time together. And that’s a-okay!
I got through my meetings slightly dodging and being pelted by crunchy fish and the clients were none-the-wiser. Tavie expressed herself without hurting anyone and napped (that’s a win in my book).
It’s ALL worth it to me, though.
I love them. They love me. I love what I do, and each aspect is important to me.
Like I always say — some days are better than others. Let that be okay.
