just one of those days.

I seem to be having a lot of these lately; days that I wonder, "could this get any harder?" Days that I feel like I'm not cutting it and I don't have enough patience to do the job I've been blessed with. Yet I persevere. I'm not miserable. I am so happy! I love being a wife and mother and I love my girls but here's a snapshot of a day in my life:

Jovie's tired, it's almost time for a nap. Pear is getting restless; we've been home all day and it's just about time for Stephen to get home from work. I'm tired, worn out and restless due to the previous reasons. We go into Pears bedroom. Pear begins jumping on the bed. She asks, "mommy, Jovie bounce too?" I put Jovie on the bed and start bouncing her gently. Pear decides to let go of the railing and bounce onto her bottom. She then lands right on the edge of the bed, rolls back and lands smack on her head. I lay Jovie down to go and comfort Pear who is now screaming. Jovie manages to roll off of the bed and is now screaming too. I lay Pear on the bed to go comfort Jovie. At this point I can't help but laugh as I think of how clearly this demonstrates the chaos of my everyday life.

Basically, repeat this scenario about 20 times maybe change it up a little but that about sums up what I go through in a day.

Isn't it the truth-- you just have to laugh at times. I'm right here with you on all of it, but you're that you're a great mama!

Paige, I think you are such a wonderful mother! I look at your excellent example and strive to follow it myself. I can only imagine how hard your job is. I am so overwhelmed with just one, I can't imagine two. I am praying for you and I hope that things get better really soon! Just remember that you are such a good mother and wife and there are other people out there wishing they could do as good of a job as you do! God is good and He will comfort you like you comfort your children!

Your post made me laugh, which made my stomach-minus-an-appendix hurt, which reminded me that my days are very much the same. Having children makes for a new kind of busy, especially when unexpected things arise. I hope you and I get a chance to connect one day. For now, I'll relate with you via the internet. Bumps and bruises and tumbles and all.

Oh girl... I'm right there with ya. Sometimes I think to myself "what kind of mother am I?" I'm exhausted, Jackson is cranky, Dinner is no where near being on the table, and I'm still folding laundry at 9 at night. There is a fine line between total chaos and just being a very busy woman. But when the day goes smooth it's the best day in the world and I could just soak it in forever. Hang in there. I just keep telling myself it has to get easier. Otherwise why would both of my grandmothers have so many children. ;O)
