Why does this month have to be so stinking busy? At some point I may stop the world and get off!! "I'll stop the world and melt" - alone please. My kids are having lots of fun times but starting to think the world revolves around them a little-IT DOES NOT!! It revolves around me.

Being Mom is the hardest job I have ever had. Nothing has ever made me feel so successful at times that I hold my head high and just feel good OR reduced me to tears because I feel like the most ill-equipped person to do it, well ever. Thankfully most days hold both feelings and I am learning to not take either end of the spectrum to heart because they pass so quickly. Successes are just as fleeting as the failures. According to the Bible, having children saves us Mommies and I gotta concur on that one. If watching your bad behaviors mimiced by a toddler or 8 YO doesn't straighten you right up, nothing will. " MY Mom said your Mom lets you do anything you want and I should find a different kid to be friends with!" It hasn't happened lately, but it has happened!!

I am up before my darlings and I must say SILENCE IS GOLDEN. I need to go do something productive now!! BEFORE, we run like crazy again today. Give me strength, Lord, give me strength!

I love knowing these ups and downs of yours - it's good to know that mothers share these rollercoasters. You're doing great!

Sweetie - if he gave you strength (you (read I WOULD) kill them! Pray for patience! I do --
"God grant me the patience to endure my blessings!"

Being a mom is the hardest job I've ever loved!

I never knew being a mom was going to be so difficult. It seems that no matter what I do.. it was wrong... at least in the eyes of my rotten kiddos. Oh well... they will grow up one day and realize how hard I tried.
