I LOVE being a MOM! Absolutely Love it! It’s something I feel I was meant to be. It is definitely the hardest but most rewarding things I have ever done in my life.
Sometimes though I feel like I’m on repeat throughout the day…
– Don’t put that in your mouth.
– That is not a toy.
– Give that to mommy please.
– Don’t hit your sister.
– Close the cupboard please.
– Put that back.
There are somedays when I don’t even have time to get out of my PJ’s.
There are times where I have felt
My children are the reason our living room has been transformed into a playroom with toys scattered everywhere.
They are the reason the dishes are never completely done.
The reason there’s a pile of dirty laundry on top of the washer.
The reason there’s a pile of clean laundry in our bedroom.
But it’s amazing how quickly you don’t care about any of this the minute you see their smile or hear their giggles.
And how a simple reach for you, somehow, just makes everything so worth it.
My family is the reason why I strive to be a better person…
There are some days that I wish I could be a better mother, a better wife…
Knowing that I’m doing the best that I can, but wonder if I could be doing better.
I need to learn to accept who I am and not be so hard on myself, and know that this is exactly where I’m supposed to be.
