**Update: We took Jackson to the doctor today and he has officially been diagnosed with RSV. We've also discovered that Ethan's allergy medicine is the culprit of his recent hyperactivity. Joys.**
It wasn't too long ago that I was feeling like I really had this being a mother of two thing in the bag. Ok, maybe not in the bag, but I at least had a good handle on it. Now? Now motherhood is kicking my tail. We are in survival mode and I'm sick of it. I'm ready to move on. I'm ready to get back to doing little projects around the house and having some "me" time or maybe just some adult time in general.
Thankfully, this time around I know that this phase will pass. Things will change. I just keep repeating that over and over again in my head to remind myself.
Motherhood is exhausting. It's not for the weak. Maybe this is just the sickies talking, but I'm surprised at how many people make it through it. There are certainly many times where I just want to through my hands up in the air and admit that I know nothing about what the heck I'm suppose to do in certain situations.
Sorry kids, you are officially guinea pigs.
Maybe I will have it figured out by the time they have grandchildren. Then they will hate me because I will be that know it all that no one really wants to listen too. But then again, by the time I'm a grandparent, all the mothering rules will have changed and again I will have no idea what I'm talking about. I guess motherhood is suppose to keep us all on our toes.
Congratulations motherhood...you are doing an outstanding job. Really. A+ all the way.
I know this is a phase and this too shall pass (repetition really makes you believe it, no really.). The upside is motherhood continuously provides me with stories and pictures to keep me laughing and share with you all. And for that? Motherhood...I thank you.
We will get back to that laughter another day...for now. I'm just surviving.
