High-Heels, Toddlers & Umbrellas

sometimes we wake up and feel that the day, just may be an off kinda day.

4:42 a.m., my alarm son wakes up & decided he was not going back to sleep.  okay no problem, we’re up.  started the day with my Good Morning Cocktail. 

The first decisions you make each morning can set you up for success the rest of the day.

When you choose to start your day in a healthy way, both physically and mentally, you set a precedent that says you won’t settle for anything less than what is best for you and your body.

.Good Morning Cocktail. 
1 lemon, juiced
1-2tsp Braggs apple cider vinegar (ACV)
pinch cayenne pepper
pinch himalayan sea salt
1 drop Young Living Ginger essential oil
3oz hot water

Followed by my coffee and morning routine. kid in sink, brushing my hair and repeating “Mama, brush” – you can imagine what I look like today, needless to say I am thankful for hair ties on days like this.

the meltdowns continue because he couldn’t brush my hair with my mascara wand; had to get out of the sink; had to put pants on; couldn’t watch Mickey … but we kept on trucking. after the third, maybe fourth, sob-fest I decided to bust out the essential oils.

I have a pre-made roller bottle of oils for just about everything including moments such as these ….. calm.down …… is the name of this magic eraser (if you will).

calm.down
10 drops Peace & Calming II
10 drops Tangerine
10 drops Cedarwood

we are big into counting lately – I must say, after applying oils, I too like the counting … 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – ahh. silence.

fast forward – we put our Immune Booster Roller on our feet [daily] to help support our immune systems, take our vitamins, put our shoes on & we get to daycare a few minutes early today and it is raining.

parents: have you ever tried to get a toddler out of a center positioned car seat of an SUV in the rain while holding an umbrella, in stilettos holding a bag of now mushed bananas and raisins. um yeah. no. so many no’s.

|| BUT || we made it. I may look disheveled but we made it and the tears stopped and the morning ended with a big bear hug and a “hurray, yay mama” so although I looked like a hot mess this morning my child still cheered me on.
