a thought



I was walking my four children and our two dogs to school this morning. As we walked through the park an old man stopped me and said, "How do you do that, how do you manage all those kids?". I stopped and thought for a moment... I guess I never really gave it much thought before... I am a great mom and this is my job... truth be told there are moments when they are awake when I wonder how I do it, and before they go to bed I wonder how I do it...and am I going to live through it...but when they are sleeping I do not think about it. I think about how lucky I am and that I have great kids. They are the joy of my life and even though there are those really hard days filled with hair pulling, crying, kicking and screaming, I am sure I can fill a page with all the crazy moments, but I think you get it... I still would not change it for anything in the world! Isn't that what being a mom is all about? I do wonder how I am going to ever finish and manage all this laundry!
