What I've Learned Since Becoming a Mom...

When there are really, really bad days, days when you just want to curl up into a ball and cry because the kids are just so tough; days when you say "good morning" to your kids and they slam the door in your face; days when you find yourself counting over and over to ten so you don't blow your top; days when you do blow your top and you wish you hadn't; days when you clean the house and 10 second later it looks like a tornado blew through it again; days when the laundry is climbing out the door; days when you are sick and everyone else is well and bouncing off the walls; days when you haven't spoken to another adult in what seems like a year; days when you are exhausted from being up all night with a sick two year old who wouldn't go back to bed because she just wanted mommy to hold her; days when you are exhausted because the night before your seven year old woke up screaming from a nightmare; and days when you think to yourself "oh goodness, what have I done?"... I've learned those moments will only last briefly and moments like getting a note like this:

will last a lifetime! By George, all that I am trying to do is actually sinking in!

Don't forget about my MommyFest Giveaway! Also, I have a Photo Caption Contest going on too! The most clever or funny caption will snag you a free custom blog banner design created just for you by me!

I have days like that! But as my kids are getting older the days seems to be better :)

Happy Blogging
