Lately I have been exhausted.
I mean it’s been crazy hectic and I am struggling to meet dates, deadlines, life lines and all kinds of things for people and myself.
Of course there is always conflict, I mean this is life so I expect a certain amount.
But sometimes I am just ready to scream and yell and basically have a tantrum like a toddler.
I am blessed to have wonderful friends and family to talk to, rant to, or just be there and say nothing but know they are there.
I am also blessed, lucky or whatever you want to call it to have my boy.
He makes me laugh and reminds me to be real without even realizing what he does.
I was asking him why he wasn’t paying attention to me, again, and reminded him of the consequences of his actions if he did not follow through on his promises and actions.
He turned to me so very serious and said, “Mommy, I’m sorry. I think my mind is frozen and it got ice in it. That’s why I wasn’t paying ‘tention to you and I’m sorry.”
He was so genuine and I tried to hold back my laughter at his very honest statement.
I got to thinking, maybe that’s what’s going on with myself and so many others.
Our brains get frozen and gets ice in it so we aren’t paying attention to what needs to be done.
I think I may be a tiny bit sleep deprived and have some discomfort (next week’s procedure can’t come soon enough I tell you – read “Mis-Procedure” if you really want to know what I am referring to) but I feel like my brain gets frozen and I can’t accomplish everything I need to because the ice sticks to it and I get zoned in on something so completely off track!
I do sound like a crazy person… goooooo me!
I do think it’s true that out of the mouths of babes we hear the truth of things.
Kids do not hold back on how they feel and their opinions of life in general.
They do not judge unless you teach them to judge.
They just say whatever is on their mind.
We have to teach them how to filter it.
Since this has been an ongoing lesson in my household, filtering as well as discretion, the boy asked me if he said something wrong.
He knew I was amused by his response but he also knew he had not being doing as told.
I told him that I was proud of him for acknowledging that he wasn’t paying attention and that the way he said it was just funny to me because it was so very true.
He then said, “Lots of people walk around with frozen brains and their not even zombies! I don’t think their mommies tell them to pay attention enough and they can’t shake the ice out!”
At this I just began laughing hysterically.
He started giggling and then told me he was “on my side like nationwide. Cause you know, they’re on your side!”
And that is a perfect ending to a challenging day!
I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday my friends!
Keep Hope Alive!
