#MirthMusicMon – Parenthood and Bluegrass

29 May

My husband spent the afternoon and evening really at home yesterday.

So he got to see what I juggle and go through in a day.

A few times he said something like, “She’s in rare form.”

No, dear. This is my new normal. Every day. For the past several weeks.

He has a new appreciation for how much actually does get done despite our two year old playing emotional and physical yo-yo with needing my presence and undivided attention vs. wanting to do things on her own and testing boundaries. It’s a train wreck of a roller coaster every. single. day.

But, she’s growing and learning, dinner is nearly ready most nights when he gets home, I am building a couple businesses in the quiet of early mornings, and the house is…well, still standing, at least. Haha!

Here’s a bit of a peek into what can happen in a single week of parenting a toddler:

To be honest, I have only had to fish a couple things out of the toilet, and only field one floor tantrum so far. Hopefully I can continue to head them off, but, you know, best laid plans and all that.

And for a little reassurance for all of us parents in the trenches:

Now for some music! A toe-tapper to give you energy to continue chasing, trying, and going for it. 🙂

Here’s to the craziness that is life, and all of it’s strange beauty. 😀

That’s it for me this week.

Victor Borge is as funny as he is an amazing pianist; he never fails to crack me up.

I hope he helps lighten the Monday blues for you. 🙂

#MirthMusicMon – How to Dad …for Toddlers!

8 May

This dad splashed onto the YouTube scene about two years ago after making a funny little how to for some guy friends. It went viral. Now, he’s something of a father hero, as he’s continuing to show how to dad with humor.

Here’s hoping he continues through their teens. He may keep a few parents sane through the last stretch of at home parenting. 😉

This post would have been out an hour earlier, but I followed the link from his YouTube page to his Facebook page and got stuck. lol

Have a Great Monday! 😀

#MirthMusicMon – Sneaky Happy Birthday

1 May

Good morning!

Hubby is off to work, Baby is still asleep, and the dogs are out.

You know what that means?

I’m having a mini vacation!

Hahahaha!

Right. Time to get a couple chores done while I have two hands and no one under foot.

Yup. You’re right. A vacation. lol

Anyway, here’s the bit of Mirth and Music Monday fun I found last night. 🙂
