Some days I have trouble keeping positive and counting my blessings. Yesterday was one of those days.

While those feelings are still very real, today is a new day and a new opportunity to choose my attitude.

Lewis has awoken earlier than normal, and it seems we’re up for the day. He is having trouble falling back asleep because of his constant coughing. I am tired, but I am soaking up this moment of being there for him when he needs me. Because in 90 minutes, I’ll be off to work and he’ll be headed to daycare.

This parenting thing is a roller coaster. People try to warn you, but nothing can prepare you. I don’t always handle it with grace. And sometimes I can’t even muster up a smile. But I’m doing this motherhood thing the best I know how, figuring it out every day as I go.
