Beth is seriously amazing and i have loved getting to know her better these last few months. i love how she writes and how honest & genuine she is. she likes to keep it real and i love her for that. it's refreshing to hear other mothers voice the same feelings and opinions as i feel! it helps me feel not so alone in this confusing thing called "being a mom."
and definitely stay a while and get to know Beth a little better.
you won't regret it!
Today I want to talk about being the glue of our family.
You know the one that holds everything together all the time.
Well that's me!
You could also say I'm the CEO of the household.
When there is a problem I fix it, repair it, or find a way around it.
With three kids and a hardworking husband it's a tough job.
I am the the one who schedules appointments.
I transport to soccer, music, and dance.
I cook and clean for a house full of people.
It's tough to be sometimes and to make it all work for five.
Life doesn't slow down though instead it speeds up.
Even with the pace increasing I'm thankful!
I'm thankful that I have these amazing people in my life.
That God trusted me enough to be their mother and give me my husband.
I look at the calender and think "Okay, how is all this going to work?"
It just does and sometimes I mess up and that's okay.
Last week I was supposed to be at the school for lunch and recess.
I completely forgot and instead caught up on emails.
The standards of motherhood are tough.
We set such high standards for ourselves and make it even tougher.
I swore before children my kids would never have a dirty face.
I said they would never behave that way in a store.
I told myself how blissfully organized I would be all of the time.
I was wrong and life is full of surprises.
So let's give ourselves a little break shall we?
Tomorrow is a new day and we'll do better.
Please stop by and visit me. I'd love to hear from you!
i especially loved that you said "we set such high standards for ourselves" because BOY i feel that....
make sure to show her some love
