it’s not always sunshine and butterflies…
This week I have been doing the <hard> side of mom life. E came down with a virus on Sunday night that lingered around 24-36 hours and then I got hit with it like a ton of bricks on Tuesday night. I have washed/lysoled/oiled all the things and all the people. I am praying really hard that B avoids coming down with it, and right now things are looking good, but I don’t feel like we are in the clear yet.
So often on social media ((and let’s be real, in real life)) we put a positive spin on things and want everyone to believe it’s all good, all the time, but it isn’t….
it isn’t always smiles, sweet words, cooking together, hugs, and kisses..sometimes it is cleaning up after a sick kiddo, ((or your self)), chasing down a wild toddler who just wants to go see his FRIENDS next door who then has an EPIC fit when you won’t let him go next door ((even though he’s been sick all day)), rushing home from work, hoping to get a ((healthy)) dinner on the table, wash the clothes, do the dishes, vacuum the floor….there’s just as much hard as there is easy (if not more….) to being a mom. But it’s so good.
I told someone today at work, that even though I really dislike missing work (and my school babies) that when MY baby is sick there is literally NO WHERE else I would rather be.
It’s really best said here in Eccliastes..
I know one day I will SOO miss this season of being a mom, so for now I will soak in all the kisses, and “mom you’re my hero”s because I know, it won’t last long.
Here E is minutes before he decided to SIT in the sink FULL of water…. while I was quickly vacuuming the living room……. he was just supposed to be washing his hands and playing with his hot wheels bus in the sink for a couple minutes….minutes later I had a HARD moment of having to clean water up from ALL OVER my bathroom floor.. But these few minutes before were so sweet and worth every minute of the HARD that followed
here’s to all you moms out there doing the HARD stuff <3
