- I'm too tired.
- It's too hard.
- I could never be/do this, that or the other thing.
And probably the number one excuse of all time ...
"I don't have the time to do X, Y or Z."
I hear it constantly. Usually, in the following form ...
"I just don't know how you have the time to do all that."
To which I ALWAYS reply, "I don't have time either. I make it."
This morning, I was faced with a dilemma: Go to Dizzle's field day or get my run in.
I really didn't want to miss either, but I didn't want to spend the whole day away from Doodle and Dilly, nor did I expect that my little sister was going to spend her day off watching my kids. (Yes, I technically have a live-in babysitter. No, I am not OK with abusing that privilege)
So, I did what any
I dressed in a super cute outfit (per Dizzle's request, as to not embarrass her too much) and ran the three miles to the school. I got there just as the opening ceremonies were beginning, right before this dance.
I can't express how happy I was to have gotten to see that. Then, the games began. I stuck around for a few, grabbed a picture with Dizzle and then ran the three miles home.

Sure, it wasn't ideal. And yes, I will probably be known as "that mom" who shows up to school events covered in sweat. But, I think it's a small price to pay to also be "that mom" who made her kid's day ...
