Tired. Busy. Need sleep.
My mama days are looking a lot like :
Baby wakes up. Nurse baby. Older kids wake up. Feed the kids. Get the kids dressed. Drop older kids at camp. Drive home. Get baby down for a nap. Work out. Clean kitchen and unload dishwasher. Shower. Rush through hair and make up. Baby wakes up or wake baby up. Feed baby. Pick up kids from camp. Come home. Feed the kids lunch. Clean up lunch. Play date / pool time / errands. Feed kids dinner. Bath kids. Get kids to sleep. Clean up the house. Get in bed. Wake up and do it all over again.
And, in the midst of this is laundry, cooking, cleaning, organizing, and socializing. Oh, and teaching the kids to read and explore.
It’s a busy season. A very busy season.
But, even on my most overwhelmed and jam packed days I think : how full is my heart?
And, the thing is, my heart is so full it could burst. So, I’ll take these crazy days and sleepless nights. One summer I’ll get my wish of laying out solo and relaxing, and I know I’ll only like it for a day. I’ll want my babies small, at home, and needing me. So, here I am, trying to soak up this busy summer, this crazy season, this thing called motherhood.
Because, one day I’ll have to let these babies fly the coop. And, my life may feel empty without them right next to me.
This summer is about enjoying the present. There is no one else I would rather be with than my loves.
Que the large gaps between blog posts, this mama is summering three kid style.
Oh, and as for my summer momiform, give me all the denim shorts and easy tees please!
