They’re all asleep. My hair is a mess and this is the first bit of quiet I’ve had all day. This week has been bad. It’s been stressful and loud with too much fighting and too many tears. But I have a question…
.
.
Can we PLEASE normalize the fact that some mothers won’t actually miss this phase? I know, that’s just what people say. I know I’ll miss their sweet faces and messy kisses, but I can say with confidence that I won’t miss this season. I rarely sleep, my house is a mess, some days I only eat a granola bar. It’s fine. They’re happy and healthy and I’m grateful for that. I would crumble to pieces if anything ever happened to any of them, but IT’S OKAY to look forward to and hope for the day when they’re old enough to reason with. So, can we all agree to normalize the moms that are okay with saying that? Just asking.
