I am so excited and terribly nervous to put these words out there. I’m opening up who I am really am for all to see. It’s incredibly important to me that I do my best to put something out there that serves its purpose and is worth reading.
This means all of nothing to my sweet little ones!
While I am preparing this launch, and struggling with the technical side that is so beyond me, my fabulously techie friend calls to help me through the actual posting of a Facebook Story. I click all the right buttons and get the announcement posted when one kid starts screaming from the toilet for me to come clean her up and another kid screams from the basement because he is DONE playing. I run to the basement, allow the toddler his freedom, then to the bathroom for the other screamer. It was locked & she can’t get up so I unlock it… but she was not occupying that bathroom & I intruded on a big kids privacy. Muttering apologies, I run upstairs, take care of business and end my call with my poor sweet friend who hears ALL of this!
Before I start breathing normally again, I get a phone call that our flooring is coming & we need to schedule an appointment. Naturally, the toddler seizes that opportunity to grab the laptop on the table and send me scrambling to put my things away before we have another expensive item to replace.
It’s madness I tell you! Oh and kid number four, bounces up the stairs like nothing is even happening. How I wish I could borrow her personality sometimes!
This is my real life! Ideals are not welcome here, perfection is the farthest thing from our reality, and my little amazing people need all of me all the time! It’s my greatest blessing and God is using it to grow me in to the woman He made me to be.
What’s it like in your home? Are your kiddos all calm, all chaos, do you have some of each? Do you get peaceful moments of mama bliss?
