Let's get honest some days motherhood just sucks.
The endless messes, the hand printed sliding door, the crayon stained walls, the whining, the dishes, the mud tracked in from football cleats, a forgotten tooth under the pillow, hearing "mom, momma, mommy" a zillion times a day.
It can be overwhelming. I have to remind myself one day I'll miss this, but sometimes I just want a pause button. Sometimes I just want to be able to sit and read all day long with a never-ending cup of coffee or spiced orange tea.
But the truth is I miss this when they are gone an hour. I miss this when the older two are at school and the house feels so quiet with just Addie. Some days I don't even want to clean the sliding door, because their little fingerprints mean life.
And on the days that are hard and I feel like there is no way any other person on the planet is as tired as I am I find comfort in this little big promise
