I received an email last week and one sentence really struck me. "Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling". So, so true. To say the days are easy around here, would be a lie.
But, oh, is it ever so rewarding. Lydia just said to me yesterday, "Mama, I love you so much. Thank you for taking good care of me".
There are days that are sometimes full of meltdowns, fussing, messes, short naps and then a big smile like below makes it all better.
Some days are extra silly....
Yes, I need a break sometimes, but I am so fortunate that I get to spend each and every day with my sweet girls. I am thankful for messy days, silly days, happy days and all the drama in between. I know that it is passing so very quickly.
