I come before you today as ONE WEARY MAMA! I honestly feel like I'm at the end of my mommy rope. My kids are driving me bananas and I truly don't appreciate much about them today. I am tired...tired of attitudes, tired of complaints and tired of poop. I don't want to make grilled cheese or cut the crust off of anybody's sandwich. I don't feel much like doing laundry or searching for blankies. I don't feel that bad when a finger is squished in a drawer and I can't figure out how to kid-proof anything else in our house. Today I am weary...truly weary. I would quit my job and walk out if the Lord had given me that option. I feel so drained and defeated. I love it when I feel inspired and filled with joy, but today isn't one of those days. I write all of this not as a downer but as the truth. I know we all face tough days when mamahood is harder than we wish...and I don't want to hide those days. They are as real as the amazing days when I feel as though I conquered the world with three darling kiddos in perfectly matched outfits. Part of the parenting journey is admitting that some days are tougher than others! Praise the Lord that we aren't alone. Blessings!
