And then there was one

(In case you're wondering, I refuse to cut her hair. We try to pull it out of her face most of the time, but I just can't handle it yet, so there.)

The older 4 are all at school.

Henry is at preschool.
And there is just Nora at home with me.

It's been a long time since I have had blocks of time with just one child.
And what am I doing with that time?

Sitting at the computer while she watches t.v.


I'm lame.

I love my little girl.
I just want to snuggle her and kiss her all the time.

And I would love to lay on the couch with her and do nothing but giggle and watch her favorite shows while we eat snacks.

But I have stuff to do.

Nothing as important as snuggling with Nora, but still, stuff that needs to get done.

Laundry, dishes, shower, clean my bathroom, laundry, tidying up, more laundry.

What is one to do?

What do you do when you don't want to do anything?

When the draw of your sweet 2 year old is more powerful than anything else, but everything else still has to get done at some point?


Forget about it. I'm snuggling.
Have a great day!

P.S. I was totally rejected. She didn't want to snuggle, she wouldn't share her pillow or her blankie, and she flat out told me that she doesn't like me.
I am the best mother ever!
But I still smooched, cuddled and loved on her for the whole 2 minutes she would let me.
Ah well, at least the laundry still loves me.


  1. life as a mum is such a challenge. there is always so much that needs to be done!

    I love that you want to snuggle and kiss your little one. I love your honesty and that you managed to get 2 minutes of bliss in. Keep trying!
