Can you feel that? Or is it just me? Do you feel nervous as well? Or is just me?
This is my first real blog post for my new site. It should be epic. It should be amazing. It should make you laugh. Make you cry. Make you feel all kind of feels.
I promise you, I had something amazing planned. But you know what happened, motherhood happened. I write an epic blog post in my head, I was about to write it down when I heard “Mommy! Mom! Mommy! Mommy! Mom!” That was closely followed behind with “Michelle! Michelle! Come here!”. If it’s not the kids calling me, its my husband. So I didn’t get to write it down, and just like that, just like all my hopes and dreams of ever sleeping through the night, out the window it went never to be seen again.
So here I sit, bags under my eyes, my hair not brushed, crushed Cheerios and snot on my pants courtesy of my sweet baby girl, who is crawling around with one sock on and no pants (don’t ask, I swear I put pants on her), taking a minute to breathe in the post craziness that is getting my two boys off to school in the morning. And all I can think is “Isn’t motherhood grand?” And you know what, it is. It doesn’t matter if the morning was a morning from hell, if the kids couldn’t find their shoes if they were wearing them, if everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. None of that matters. When I hug and kiss my boys goodbye and see them go on their way to school I instantly miss them. Its amazing. They can drive me completely and utterly nuts, but the second they walk out that door I miss them and can’t wait for them to come home again. Motherhood is a never-ending roller coaster of emotions. But no matter the ups and downs, it’s all worth it. So very worth it.
As my daughter will soon realize that her brothers are gone, and demand I give her my undivided attention and the reality of exhaustion will creep back in, and the reality that it is only Monday will come to me. And when I realize that it is only Monday, it can only mean one thing… 4 more crazy mornings to get through until the weekend! I can do this. I can do this. I will do this. With messy hair, Cheerios on my clothes, and maybe only 1 eye open, I will do this!
Wont you come join me on this crazy fun adventure called Motherhood? Who’s Ready? More importantly, who has the coffee (and possibly some chocolate?)?
