We are on Day 10 of the sickies around here and things are still not looking up. Everyone has a cold...including baby Jack. A congested 2 month old is the saddest thing I have ever seen. It's fun times around here folks. 

**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 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.


  1. It is sad to see such little ones sick...but big bros always seem to bring in those germs! Praying that the sickies leave your house asap!

  2. Sending lots of love to your household! There's nothing worse than a house with the sickies! And I'd say you're on the right track by repeating your little mantra to yourself. This too will certainly pass :)

  3. I'm so sorry!! I hope things settle down for you soon!

  4. I hope you all get feeling better soon! Motherhood kicks my tail on a daily basis...sick or not...but being sick is just an added bonus!! HA! Hang in there:)

  5. Honey, I feel the same way and my kids aren't sick. Each day is a challenge & I question my abilities constantly, but we're doing it. Hang in there!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
