pity parties and paint parties

Today has been one of those days that I feel like I’m totally losing it. Just when I get real proud of myself for handling it all so well, I get knocked down a peg or two.

Rory was in a mood this morning and that made ME in a mood. Ryder was screaming because she seems to be starving all the time but isn’t eating well. I was short tempered and a total butt. Therefore, Rory was the same. Isn’t it funny how that works??

Then we get to school and a friend of mine’s kid threw up in the car  in the parking lot and I just totally lost it. Cried like a crazy woman for a good hour. Threw myself an awesome pity party.

So all in all… fantastic morning! ha!

In fact, I’ve been throwing a pity party for a couple of days now. I’m mad that we have had to go through all of this. I’m mad that Ryder just can’t get better with her eating. I’m mad that people say things they THINK are helpful but honestly are just rude. I’m mad that Rory won’t sleep at night. I’m mad that things are completely out of control with every aspect it seems at our house. I’m mad that I can’t get a break without feeling guilty for being away, for leaving Andy with crying kids, and the list goes on. I’m mad Andy gets to leave to go to work (because clearly that is so much fun all of the time for him). I’m mad that I can’t write a dang blog post without it being about something heavy. I mean, who wants to read sad/depressing stuff all the dang time?!

And yet, even through my pity party, Jesus loves ugly ole’ me anyway. Isn’t that crazy? I sure wouldn’t love me right now!

So there you have it.

Let’s move on, shall we?!

Rory had a much better party yesterday- a painting party!

See the paint, Mommy?!

Are you seeing this, Mom?

Hold that thought, I’m getting inspired…

hold it…. hooollllldddddddd it….

okay, what were you saying again?

mmmhmmm I’m listening, I’m listening…

har har har, that was hilarious, Mom!

Did you notice my pink fingernails and toenails, yet?!

Let me just take a second to enjoy my amazing artwork.

After the paint party, I threw Rory in the shower (I thought it was more humane than hosing her off with the water hose outside). You tell me if you think she enjoyed it.

I believe she did.

Have a great Thursday!

P.S. : You are all going to want to come back tomorrow because I am hosting an awesome giveaway thats starting tomorrow! Yay!

  1. Rory looks like such a big kid painting and in the shower! Such a cute girl. Praying for you – I don’t know what it’s like to have medical issues but I can imagine how very overwhelming it is.

  2. You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine, you make me Happy when skies are Gray. You’ll never know Dear how much I LOVE YOU, please don’t take my Sunshine Away!

  3. I feel the same way, and I only have one child. It seems like everything is spiraling out of control most days. But thank God, He loves in spite of all that! Thanks so much for the reminder.

  4. Tiffany, when Paul was going through chemo, radiation and dealing with the idea of cancer, I used to think if I had a melt down or a pity party that I would not be a strong witness for others to see. I thought I had to be so strong and positive all the time….that is just not so! It is totally ok for you to be angry and upset. That is your precious baby girl. Think about how much you love your children, well our Heavenly Father loves them even more!!! Precious little Ryder is in His hands and she is going to be fine!!! We pray for y’all every day!!

I love hearing from y'all! Leave a comment below!
