When It is Just Isn't Your Day and You Feel Down (more like you feel like shit)
Today just isn't my day.
My car battery went dead on me and I was already running late for work.
Instead of waiting to get it sorted out, I hailed a taxi from in front of my home and got to work within a reasonable time frame.
Then I had a 2pm-4pm break and the sky looked very dark. As if my mood isn't dark enough for the day.
It was then that I decided to take the cab back home to check on my baby boy, dark sky or not.
By the time I reached home, rain started pouring and the thunderous sky had an angry sounding orchestra up above.
My little one's smiling face changed to a frown and then his mouth turned downwards and he started wailing with the first thunder. The second lightning came and the second thunder sounded, causing him to wail even more. I picked him up and cuddled him while singing a nonsense lullaby that I just made up on the spot and he calmed down and settled into a singing response to me, cooing all the way in my arms as the thunders continue their symphony.
Bad day or not, I felt needed and I am glad I made that short trip back home right there and then before going back to work at 4pm later.
If you let them, babies have a way of brightening your day... the keyword here is "if you let them".
I have decided to let my baby taken over my life and my heart. Thank you baby boy.
Back to work now. :-)
