I just try to be good to myself as much as possible...very difficult for a sahm with a toddler. Today was a difficult day for sure. I wanted to go to the store to pick up some groceries (with no car), but it rained all morning. I waited until dd woke up from her nap at 4pm, and decided I'd go then. WRONG! It took over an hour to get her dressed, sunscreened, fed, put in the stroller...then I had to get the diaper bag ready, find my keys that my dd likes to hide from me, attempt to comb her long tangled curls, etc. By the time we left, it was 5:15pm. I walked halfway to the store, and just turned back around. I just didn't have it in me to go. I was starving, and passed a McD's, but didn't stop because I didn't want to deal with trying to maneuver the stroller into the door (with people looking at me and not even offering to hold open the door!!). Sorry about the long answer...just wanted to get that off of my chest!
