I told Jeff last night that I was giving him my 2 weeks notice, I think he thought I was joking, but at the moment I was totally serious. He didn't take my resignation, maybe I should put it in writing??
If you couldn't tell it has been a LONG week. We have been completely cooped up inside, which is not my favorite. When I started my Mommy journey years ago I thought it would be all fun and play, lots of cute moments. But no one told me that those moments are very few and far between. I was not at all prepared for the real life of a mommy. Those who are mom's know what I am talking about.
I wish I could say I was better at handling the bad days, the life happens moments but sadly I am not. I need constant reminders that this is a journey try and be happy, stop stressing and enjoy it.
Being a mom is hard there is no boss giving a pay check or a bonus, it is work work work. And even the wonderful glorious breaks are filled with worry and sometimes regret at what you might be missing.
I love my cute little faces even at the worst moments they do brighten the days, even I try harder to ignore that and stay grumpy. It is a lot of work and while I need to remember that there may not be a reward today I know there will be one someday. That my children having me here is rewarding. I am so lucky.....today I am trying to remember that, sad that I need to be reminded but hey I am only human. I must give a shout out to the hubs, who listens to me complain who I know would rather be here than anywhere else. Even if I am a huge grump some days.
Today I am thankful for my 3 boys who reminded me of my reward, for the Lord's tender mercies in my life, and for a loving, kind and overly PATIENT husband. I am blessed and this is good work.
