Have you ever felt like that? Like your life has a mind of it's own? Like you need hold on for dear life or it might just throw you off the ride?
That's me right now. Actually, I think Chad would agree - that's US right now.
I knew that having another child would make life complicated. I just truly had no idea how complicated the logistics of 3 kids and 2 working parents could be. Not to mention, how expensive. Why do I work? Oh right...medical insurance... the chance for a good life...paying for college, braces, sports, 401k blah blah blah. What about my sanity? Isn't that worth anything? Apparently not.
I know I am not alone in this. Every working parent out there knows how I feel.
Up at 4:30. Get myself ready. Get kids ready. Drive kids to school. Drive myself to work. Work my butt off. Drive home. Make dinner. Football. Swimming. Clean kitchen. Homework. Bedtimes. Crash. Repeat. OMG!!!!!
Seriously?? I didn't even mention laundry, grocery shopping, snuggle time or anything else that really matters.
All of that said - we find the strength to do it all again. Everyday.
It's the little things.
Like standing in the doorway watching your baby sleep.
Or seeing your daughter climb into her daddy's lap to snuggle.
Or your 9 year old hugging you and telling you "your the best mommy ever."
Yeah. Totally worth it.
