    The little ones are so forgiving. It really is true that if we don’t have a great day today the promise for a better chance tomorrow is still there.

    • Courtney K. says:

      And what gets me is how easily they forget the moments when mommy or daddy weren’t having a good day. They just keep on like it never happened…no grudges, no resentment. Just pure love and adoration.

  2. Kir says:

    That is MOTHERHOOD…it was a gorgeous way to look at it and admit that sometimes we have “not so good” moments…but we can always do better tomorrow.

  3. Shell says:

    Oh, I so have days like this. ALL. THE. TIME.

    So thankful for kids with their loving and forgiving hearts and the chance for me to do it better tomorrow.

    • Courtney K. says:

      I’m glad to see I’m not the only one. Days like this aren’t uncommon around here, and I usually carry around a bit of mommy guilt afterwards. It helps to see that others are right there with me.

  4. Lizzi S. says:

    Beautiful! I can relate to all your feelings here. It’s an amazing and precious job we have as mothers.

  5. Jackie says:

    I got all choked up reading this because I also have had days like this. We all do.

    • Courtney K. says:

      Didn’t mean to make you choke up, Jackie! But I’m glad to hear I’m not alone. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

  6. They really are the most forgiving little creatures, those toddlers. When do we lose that – the ability to forgive and forget so easily? Where does it go?

    Great post.

  7. You sure do get exercise! It sounds like you get physical and spiritual exercise.

    • Courtney K. says:

      LOL Oh yes. I don’t need a workout plan. I keep myself busy enough. And that little guy is always teaching me something new spiritually. Amazing how God works.

  8. Ashley Sisk says:

    You sure do know how to tell a story…love this girl.

  9. Lisa Grace says:

    What a precious moment … not all the moments leading up to it, but that moment of love between you at the end. We’ve all been there … probably more than we want to think about or admit. Hope today is filled with all kinds of fun giggles and snuggles and joy!

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Lisa! Today was much better. Still battling the little three year old mentality, but it was certainly easier today than yesterday. Hope you guys are having a wonderful week!

  10. Jessica says:

    Beautifully written post. While I know that tomorrow is not promised, it’s days like these that make me be thankful for the prospect of a new day, the prospect to start all over again. It can be tough being a parent, so “bad” days are to be expected, but for me, it’s hard to swallow my bad days when aware of how my bad days affect my children and how much they are not representative of how much I love my children.

    • Courtney K. says:

      Absolutely. I think we are all entitled to off days, but I always try to make sure that an off day is followed by a really great one. I never want my child to remember growing up in a house where mommy was always upset or mad or angry.
