Our days are so busy now.
Being a mother is hard work, but its the best kind of work.
I think it is because of how constant it is. Sometimes I remember simpler days and wonder what I ever did with my life. The moments are all so full now and I hardly have a chance to catch my breath before moving on to the next thing.
I was thinking about this the other day when I took my baby to the bathroom with me and let her play with a tampon out of desperation. I just needed to sit and be still for a moment. I mean, even going to the bathroom is on my to-do list now. Most of the time it ranks under breastfeeding and lunch.
But all it takes is one smile from my baby girl and I am smiling right back at her and that gives me the rush of energy I need to carry on.
Motherhood is wonderfully exhausting.
