Things I Know About Motherhood

If there is one thing I know about motherhood it's that there is no one size fits all. That would be too easy, and if I know another thing about motherhood, it's that this shiz ain't easy.

We have three kids now, and it seems like they're the three bears from the Goldie Locks story. One is too big, one is too small, and one is just right. They each rotate which bear they are from day to day, and keeping up with each kid and their needs wipes me out.

There are never enough hours in the day. When the baby naps, it feels like it's a race against time. I'm trying to prioritize which tasks are most important and racing to get as much done as possible. 

Then, when SJ wakes up, I cuddle him and all I want is for time to stand still. Motherhood is a trip y'all, and time is a thief. 

One last thing I know about motherhood and the season of raising kids, is that it goes way too freaking fast. Sure, it can be exhausting. Sure, it can feel like you're in the trenches, but that's only some of the time, and the rest of it is full of baby laughs, funny things the kids say, and seeing the world through their innocent little eyes. Let's be the glass half full kind of parents. So that later in life, when we look back, we will remember only the best parts of the greatest thing we will ever do on earth.
