My Truths

These are the truths of my new reality.

If you come to my house I will be a mediocre host at best.  I can definitely offer you water, maybe coffee, but if you're expecting a meal you either need to bring it or help prepare it.  Also, my house will be covered with crayons, fruit loops, and half done laundry.

I am pretty much tired all the time.

Coffee is the one thing I look forward to most of all in the morning.  It's my #1 reason for getting out of bed.  My children are a distant second, maybe even third depending on what's for breakfast.

We may not have a variety of food in the house, but there's always wine.

Sometimes I feel like I'm living the same day over and over again a la Groundhog Day.

I love when there's company over.  Makes me feel better just to have another adult in the house.

I absolutely cannot relax if there is clutter.  I'd prefer the house to be really deep clean, but that's not gonna happen so I'll settle for table tops and counters that are clear.

I am very jealous of people who get to sit around all day and relax and watch TV and do whatever they want.  I don't get to sit for half a second without one kid wanting to nurse and the other one wanting to play.

{Melinda from Mothering From Scratch} Oh, I remember those days. It is HARD and exhausting. It does get better. Mothering is still challenging, no matter what their ages, but as they get older and more independent, a little more normalcy and freedom returns. <3
