1 step forward, 2 steps back

I am typing away in my happy voice about how terrific this weekend was last night.
I have freaking Moonbeams shooting out my ass and I am singing the old Coca Cola song and skipping down a marshmallow path.
I am then dragged out of this Skittles dream by "MOM, I NEED YOU!"
I am trying to pry my glued eyes open to figure out what is the problem. I have 1 child snoring next to me and the other is still calling. Clock=6:55am.
"I am coming-Hold your horses!"
I drag my ass downstairs figuring this is the first request for juice or a pancake and I come face to face with this:"Sowwy Mama"
I think I may have countered that with-"You are kidding me right?"
I spend the first 6 minutes of my day on my hands and knees as this art project extended down her arms, the floor, my Mother's work badges, my work bag and her rat's nest of a hair do.
My new mantra is ~ I love my daughter, I love my daughter, I love my daughter. Do not kill her, Do not kill her, Do not kill her......
I did not raise my voice and that is a miracle in itself. Now on this the show.

LOL Awww what a face... but this single girl who occasionally hears the tick tock thanks you for the reminder that motherhood is not all hugs and refrigerator drawings.
