Wake up and smile…

Ok- yesterday sucked. Just being real here. Everything spiraled completely down hill, I was sick and we all ended up in horrible moods. No. Good.

So today, in spite of still feeling like junk, I decided to wake up and make it a better day. To make anything within my control… better.

I started with these raspberries…

And instead of getting frustrated, I welcomed this little raspberry-stealing man into my cooking space and laughed with him, and enjoyed him…

I enjoyed the little bit of sun streaming in and casting shadows through my little shelf display, that I love…

I made a Dutch baby…

And served it as such…

I did school with this guy and it was our absolute best day in 8 weeks! We finally had a day that included finishing everything (plus some) that I had planned, we only took one break, we were done before lunch (even if lunch was a little late) AND he had a good attitude. It was so encouraging!

We ended the day with one of these- warm and comfy food, perfect for a blustery fall day…

…it was a good day.

One thought on “Wake up and smile…

    It always amazes me how my own attitude can change the mood of the household. We have bad and good days, and days that are in between. I get frustrated and discouraged sometimes, and I wonder how other homeschool parents deal with it all. Thanks for sharing your good day-it’s refreshing to know I am not alone in this challenge! 🙂
