Nessa's World: A DAY OUT





Evan has been Mr. cranky pants these past few days. He hasn't been feeling well and he sure is showing it. He only wants mom and I really shouldn't complain, Right? To be honest, I am feeling a little overwhelmed, and can't help but feel frustrated from time to time. Keep in mind I am a very patient person. I almost never feel this way, but as a stay at home mom with a working daddy and not much help unless I'm at my parents, it can get very frustrating. Evan's dad decided to take the week off to help me out with our poor sick baby. He decided it would be a good idea to get out of the house and enjoy a day out.

  I can't tell you guys how much I needed this. I think Evan did too. We took a trip to Wal-Mart to purchase a few necessities, and I requested Starbucks. Evan had a water and used his cup holder on his new car seat for the first time. He seriously felt like a big boy holding his own cup and drinking from a straw. I took a second to pause and smile. This little boy is really something else. He is so amazing, and I felt silly for feeling so frustrated. Our day out made me realize that sometimes I just need to take a second to realize how truly blessed I am.

 On another note, check out Evan's new PJs! I think he feels extra cool in them. I can tell that after today Evan is feeling way better. He can sit down play with his toys and be with dad. He isn't being as fussy, what a relief. My advice to any mama feeling like myself, go outside and have a day out. Whether it be to the park or store, it really turns your mood around.

  1. Nice post to remember to take a break. Sometimes a little recharge can make everything better!

  2. It's so difficult to not struggle with "mom guilt" as a stay at home mom when our toddlers become a bit cranky and we feel frustrated. It's so hard when someone is yelling at you all day, even if they aren't feeling well and are equally frustrated. We had our share this past well. So glad your hubby picked up on cues and took the time off to help you out! What a blessing! It's the hardest job yet the most rewarding :) -Xo Amanda

  3. We have that happen here quite often. We will rarely leave for a few days and it is like we get a case of cabin fever. I can not wait for all of this snow to melt so we can just step outside and play.

  4. Okay, cranky or not, Evan is a total cutie! And oh man, I would LOVE if my hubs took off some work when my little one gets sick. What a sweetie your guy is :)
