I feel like life has be a little bit crazy lately. One thing after the other, never being able to keep up with daily tasks… you know, typical Mom life. Like that mountain of laundry in the corner of my room that has been haunting me for days…
I was talking to my good friend Lindsy about this the other day (basically venting to her) And it turns out, she has been feeling this very same way. It felt so good to talk with her and realize I’m not the only one who feels this way sometimes.
So you mean this is a normal Mom thing? and I’m not alone when I feel like pulling my hair out at the end of the day after feeling like a crazy person for having to repeat myself over and over again?! You mean, I’m not the only one who hates cleaning something that 5 mins later just gets messed up again (especially my couch) You mean other Mom’s may also get annoyed with never having a clean kitchen sink and just when when it is nice and shiny clean, another dish gets thrown into it?! (yeah I get that’s what a sink is for… but it just looks so pretty and makes me feel so accomplished when there is nothing in it!)
So I guess what I’m getting at is, it’s nice to have friends and other Mom’s to relate with, to know that I’m not the only one who feels this way sometimes, to know this is totally normal and all apart of the journey of Motherhood.
I know I have it pretty good, and things could be a lot worst. At least I have a sink with running hot water right? but I also know It’s OK for me to feel this way sometimes because its totally normal. It’s a think I have come to call crazy love. Even though things are a a bit crazy with little ones, I love them so much and wouldn’t have it another way.
I know that one day I am probably going to miss this crazy stage of life. This stage while the kids are still so young and innocent. I’m just going to take it a day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Enjoying the little things through all the mess. Because if i think of it this way, at least my kids are happy and healthy enough to be making the mess… So I say, bring on that mess;)
