Being a SAHM isn't easy! And I've really struggled with it this week. I'm in full time working mode all the time - watching the kids' every move, playing, cleaning, cooking, doctor's appointments, running errands, grocery shopping, and the list goes on. When I worked outside the home, there were struggles, but to me, it's just not the same. Don't get me wrong though, I know every job is hard. I see this daily with Chet. Sometimes I just feel as if there's no escaping!
This is the hardest job I've ever had. And quite frankly, sometimes it just sucks! Cru is battling yet another ear infection, his fourth. He's very fussy and whiny and throws the biggest fits over the littlest things. He's so smart and such a little stinker and knows exactly how to push his sister's buttons, so some days it's just constant fighting with those two. And then to top it all off, I'm so tied down with Everlee's needs that I feel as if I just sit in my chair and yell at them. And the louder I yell, the worse their behavior gets.
Ugh! It's just hard.
Then I find myself turning on a movie just to distract them from being so rambunctious and to give me a little peace and quiet.
But I know that working through these daily struggles and all of life's struggles only makes us stronger.
And I also know that with the bad, comes the good. And this too shall pass.
If I can make it through today, tonight will be good - Reese has her first May Fete performance! She is so excited! I don't think she really cares about dancing in front of people, she's just excited to wear her fancy costume and make-up!
I try to stay positive....Chet might say otherwise, but I try. And although this has been a horrible start to my week, I really know in my heart how blessed I am.
