When you don't have a baby sitter but need to work...
Sometimes as Moms we just gotta do what we gotta do right?
Tonight my wifi decided to go down on me. They couldn't fix it tonight so off I went to Starbucks to finish my work and submit by deadline tonight.
I packed up my kids (feathered one too), toys, ipad, coloring books etc. thinking I was fully prepared to keep my toddler busy while I finished up.
WRONG...She was into her ipad for about 2.5 seconds. Then she started to color, that lasted about 1.2 seconds, THEN she decided to play with her sand toys (weird, I know) and that lasted nearly a millisecond!
Then she decided that running around the Starbucks patio was exactly what she needed...(oh thank Gawd!)
Of course...this lasted about 5 whole minutes until she wanted all of Mommy's attention...
SO I got absolutely nothing done and missed my deadline.
Sometimes as single moms...we just can't win. But man are our kids worth it!
Even my Congo African Grey thought she'd join in on the "fun" by throwing her own temper-tantrums. Life...it is precious even in it's most frustrating moments.
