As I lay here and put Brodie to sleep for the second time tonight I am reminded of how blessed I really am!! Somedays in the midst of filling up cups, making meals, cleaning up messes, folding clothes (only to have them unfolded by the 1 year old), reading stories, wiping bottoms, building block towers, singing songs, breaking up fights, attempting a "quick" run to the store(who am I kidding with 5 kids nothing is quick) only to forget the one thing I went in for! sometimes in that day to day chaos I forget how truly blessed I am!! It's ok to feel a bit overwhelmed Mom life is not always easy! It's ok to wonder if your are doing something wrong, it's ok if you want to take a 5 minute timeout to your self!
But please if you are reading this and having a hard lately please remember not to be so hard on yourself! Those little ones of yours don't remember the moments where you raised your voice, they don't remember you getting frusturated, they don't realize if the floor isn't swept or the sink is full.
They remember you reading to them, playing make believe with them, dancing around the living room and singing (even if you have no rhythm and sing out of tune like me). They remember your smile and laughter!
The days are long but the years are short. Make memories my friends!! #momlife #momof5 #wevegotthis #daysarelongyearsareshort
