I feel like a broken record talking about how sick I’ve been for the last 10 days or so, but the struggle has been real. It’s been over a week now of nasty cold symptoms, unwashed hair, dark circles under my eyes, a messy house, a dirty toddler, and antsy dogs.
So when the opportunity came a few days ago to get out of the house for a bit to soak up some vitamin D and breathe in some fresh air, I had to take it. I threw my greasy hair in a bun, retrieved some clothes from P’s dirty laundry basket (I know, worst mom of the year award), packed my vest pocket full of Kleenex, and headed out the door with P for a little adventure.
While we were playing at the park and watching the fountains, I couldn’t help but notice I got a few judgemental looks from other moms as they examined my get-up and P’s dirty knees, but given the week we’ve had, it was a miracle we even made it out of the house with all the essentials, so we tried to ignore them 🙂
And to top off the afternoon, we even got a surprise visit from dad on his lunch break.
So between the fountains, hanging with dad, and getting to play in the dirt (since her clothes were dirty anyway…), P had herself quite the perfect afternoon. And despite feelin’ crummy, this mama didn’t have too shabby of a time either 😉
