Mothering is hard work. Yes, it is. Not may people will tell you that or admit it, but it is. It is the best job in the entire universe but, it is stinkin' hard.
My almost 4 year old is giving me quite a run for my money over the past few months. She is my girlie-girl. She has the best personality but, with that comes quite the temper. You know the phrase "terrible-twos"? No, no. It's "Terrible-threes." or "Terrific-threes" when I'm in more of a positive-sarcastic mood. Some days it is an all day thing where we are dealing with screaming and all-out tantrums. ugh. Today was one of those days...that's why I'm venting. :) I'm a one day at a time kind of girl. I like to take things as they come and that's why I can take a quick breath and say "ok, tomorrow is a new day, a fresh start." Honestly, that gives me so much hope. To be completely honest though, sometimes I don't say that, I just curl up in a ball and feel sorry for myself but, most of the time I will remind myself of it. :) I Know that God's grace and mercy starts new every day, not just for me but, for my little ones too. Sometimes I'll stop and look at my kids and say to myself "they mess up and have bad days just like me" and I remind them of the fresh start they can have.
So...tomorrow is a new day...fresh, with no mistakes. Looking forward to that.
Thanks for listening...er, reading. :)
