When Aunt Lauren visits
Just posting a shorty today to say thanks for your support from yesterdays post.
When I was up at 2am feeding Luke that morning, I strongly considered throwing it back into drafts and holding off on posting it. The main reason was because I watched an E:60 two nights ago on Ernie Johnson and, man, if that doesn’t give you perspective, I’m not sure what will.
I’m not lessening how hard colicky babies are, TRUST A SISTER. But hearing what Ernie Johnson has gone through, and goes through on a daily basis, helps me see that my situation is not the end of the world.
So anyway, thanks for your encouragement. It’s been an tough few weeks. I’m determined to try my best to not get bogged down with complaining and negativity during these times. The support and camaraderie I felt reading through the comments yesterday was so meaningful. I didn’t realize I needed to hear that like I did, so thank you so much for your sweet, encouraging comments.
My priority, above all else, is to mother each boy as best I can. A lot of the time I need an attitude adjustment. And a lot of the time I’m complaining to my mom and sister.
But when I’m walking circles in the kitchen, or bouncing in the living room trying to soothe Luke, I do feel like I’m the luckiest to spend my days with the boys. Sure, I need a break every once in awhile, every mom does, but I’m incredibly grateful to be able to stay home and invest these long days in my kids.
