Since becoming a Mother… I’ve learned to embrace ponytails and no makeup. I’ve learned that showering everyday is a luxury. Don’t ask me if I’m happy about it… I’ll tell you I am not. It’s not like I treat my shower as my quiet time. My thinking spot. Not at all. Who needs alone time and time to think?!?
In all seriousness though…
Motherhood brings me a lot of joy. I’m happier than I’ve ever been. This happiness I would have never known or been able to embrace had it not been for my children.
They’re very cute and oh-so-sweet. Most of the time. They shriek, throw temper tantrums and bang on all the loudest toys possible. ALL. THE. TIME. Oh and the poo. Don’t even get me started on the poo. They also give the best sloppiest kisses. Warmest hugs. Their unconditional love is everlasting. They’re truly your biggest fan. You’re their role model. How cool is that?! Like really!
Now I don’t get much time for myself. Y’know what though. That’s ok.
Sometimes I’m jealous of my husband. Getting out of the house daily. Y’know socializing. Must be a nice break. Would you even call work a break?
I always get to look forward to the weekends. Family time. Having that extra set of hands around to help me out. Being able to sleep in. Oh yes. On the weekends, my husband gets up in the morning with the children. I get to sleep in. Er… pretend to. Usually I just lie in bed, horizontal tweet and chuckle at how rambunctious the kids are being.
I love him (and my kids).
Life can be quite chaotic. Chaos keeps me on my toes. It keeps life interesting. Beneath all that chaos though is a life I wouldn’t trade for anything else in the world. I’m truly blessed. Don’t carpe diem me. I don’t need you to remind me how good my life is. I already know!
Far from perfect, but pretty darn awesome!
