Hope- family dinner
This is a picture of HOPE. Hope of ending this weekend on a positive note. A real family dinner I SO believe in but haven’t achieved yet because... kids that are 4,3,1. We have been mostly in survival mode.⁣

This weekend was not our best. We are all grieving a loss in our own unique ways that don’t necessarily make sense to anyone. ⁣

There were⁣
*tears (mine, kids)⁣
*tantrums(mine, kids)⁣
*yelling(me, kids)⁣
*bad decisions(mine, husband, kids)⁣

So, my last ditch effort was to make a nutrient rich homemade dinner and have all of us eat together in our dining room. ⁣

Guess what? The kids didn’t touch the food-said it was yucky- and got up and left after making a giant mess.⁣

There were more⁣
*tears (mine, kids)⁣
*tantrums(mine, kids)⁣
*yelling(me, kids)⁣
*bad decisions(mine, husband, kids)⁣

🤦‍♀️⁣

Ooooo this life thing is kinda hard. How do y’all get out of a family F*U*N*K? ⁣

Here’s to trying again tomorrow 🍷 ⁣
