The Mom Life: Long {Day 17}


My husband has been working longer hours this week. Even with childcare and working, the time between getting home and his arrival can feel like an ETERNITY.

It doesn’t matter if we do play dough followed by coloring. And then swing and slide and sidewalk chalk and watch a 30 minute video. We’ve only killed 35 minutes!

Today may be one of those days. We’ve went on an adventure to pick up breakfast, had a video chat with Granny and now we are happy to play in the playroom while mommy types up this blog post but it is only 9:35.

Attitude makes a difference and I hope that today. no matter what, we will make the best of it and before we know it daddy will be home and it won’t feel that long afterall.

This post is part of a 31 day movement. You can learn more about it here but the gist of it is that I take 5 minutes to write on a one word prompt that is provided following a theme that I have chosen. My theme is The Mom Life. So every post will center around my life and experiences as a mom and what comes to mind when I think about the prompt given. Hope you enjoy following my writing journey as much as I will love crafting the words.
