Music Monday – Chaos Crushers For The Hectic Life

Mondays at my house start somewhere between, “Where were we supposed to be ten minutes ago?” and “No, you can’t have cookies for breakfast.”

As a mom of four amazing kids (Yes, I’m biased), I’m constantly trying to remember where I’m supposed to be next, if I have enough cash on hand for the twenty different things my kids need to pay for that day, and whether I put my shirt on right side out that morning.

Sad, but true.

Maybe you’ve been there.  Chaos has a way of swallowing us whole and churning our day into a anxiety ridden experience of roller coaster ups and downs.

I just love when Francesca Battistelli comes on the radio and I just know she has walked in my shoes.

Searching for my keys, check. Missing phone, check. Yep. I relate to this song as if I wrote it when no one was looking.

I wouldn’t change the adventures I have with my family, but it sure helps to know that I am not alone in my experiences. Even when I reach a point where I am not sure if I will be sane five minutes later, I still wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Crazy right? Probably. Somehow I have to find a way to manage the chaos without a straight jacket.

In the middle of it all, I might be sitting in my minivan or waiting at an appointment when the perfect Johnny Diaz song comes on:

Somehow I forget to breath in the middle of the chaos. If I could just loop this song through my head all day long, I would probably find life less chaotic.

Did you breathe today?

What kind of crazy goes on in your world on Mondays?
