I sat down tonight with a black Charlie Brown cloud over my head. I was ready to write my first really grumpy post about how I quit this job!! Tonight, I was ready to send the kids to public school just so I could read a book and exercise and have my house clean for at least four hours a day. Tonight, I wept on the couch as I told my husband that I needed a support group because my job is hard and my responsibilities feel so heavy.
Then, I logged on and read your recent comments. You put a smile on my stubborn face. You reminded me that I have a great support group. You let me know that because I let my son make fake snot for his birthday, I am doing okay at this Mom thing. I'm not sure that I believe you, but at least the big black cloud is gone.
This fifth baby has thrown me for a loop. I think I've had some depression and I was impatient with that thought because I love being a Mom. My baby is an absolute joy and I love her with a Mother's Love, but she is not an easy baby. A demanding baby, plus home school, plus home-keeping, plus, plus, plus=pity party for Emily!
Thank you for reminding me of my blessings. . . you included.
I wish I could offer some fabulous give-away at this point in the post. You deserve it.
