Friday is my favorite day of the week.
It always has been, although now more than ever. Each Friday Eve (Thursday night), I tell Waverly Maye that I get to spend the following two days uninterupted with her. I get to be the first face that she sees, share in her constant happy morning mood, and feed her cereal for the first time of the day. I love it and look forward to it, with the only downside being realizing what I miss during the week.
This Friday definitely couldn’t come soon enough, and honestly not for the best of reasons. This hasn’t been the easiest week for us. As previously posted, we have had a bit of a sleep issue (actually, sleep as been pretty non-existent.) Furthermore, I have come down with a sinus infection, my students have been driving me crazy, and we have had two sick babysitters.
And on a side note, my “quick run into” Kroger on Wednesday ended up lasting over an hour. After dropping my cart & all the groceries into the parking lot, my keys were no where to be found. After walking around Kroger at least five times and eventually resorting to digging out my hide-a-key, Kroger called to explain that the man who had helped me pick up my groceries had accidentally left with them. Really? We had to drive across the city to recover they keys.
So those are the obvious crashes of my week. There were a few. But rather than continuing my negative rant, it’s on to the crest (high point of my week!). Which, by the way, completely makes up for all the crashes. Why? As I was feeling rather overwhelmed and not at all like the savvy working-mom I sometimes feel I can be … I looked down at my baby girl. Waverly had the biggest smile, was laughing, and clearly had no idea how stressed I was feeling. It was at that point that I realized that even on my worst day, I now have her. And that makes that lack of sleep or bad luck at the grocery store simply trivial and even comical, when I really think about it. How great is that? Best CREST ever. 🙂
