Picture perfect motherhood- snowy mountains, smiling well mannered children, and I'm sure there is a deer prancing somewhere in the background. Swipe right for the Actual Portrait of Motherhood: usually things don't go as planned.
You guys, it's hard....this whole mothering thing. It's such a balancing act and I've found myself (especially this last year) falling off the beam more than once. But what I'm realizing, (and it's the BEST)....kids don't care! They love you no matter what. They still think you're great and funny and the best mom, even if you are feeling like you've totally dropped the ball. Or all the balls. Or you can't even remember where the balls are, and when you find them they will all be flat.
And what's great about this photo is you really can't tell if I'm trying to pull them up, or if I'm using them to prevent me from falling down(it's mostly that one, let's be honest), and that's kind of how life is with these kids. We are all raising each other- pulling each other up mountains along the way.
So yeah, motherhood is hard and messy and tiring and sometimes really tricky to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing. But it's also kind of the best, and I can't imagine life without these two little people that are mine.
Put that on a hallmark card.
