Being a mother

Lately...

I am feeling restless. So many things that I want to do, but not enough time for them all. My creative juices are flowing, but I might as well be tied to a chair because my arms are full and so are my hours.

I am feeling inspired and ambitious. But I lack the opportunity to achieve. I guess all moms feel like this sometimes.

I know if I had many moments to myself, many moments to achieve and to realize all those little dreams..I would miss being with my babies. I would miss having full arms, and I would miss all those things I love about being a mother. So I'll stay. Right here. Right where I am, holding and nursing and loving these little ones.

Sweet sis. I know how you feel. There are times I desire free time to do something I would like. Sometimes I get stressed because in the few minutes baby naps I only can do so much and it is all housework.

Tonight I was fustrated because I wanted to be with my husband on our aniversary and baby wouldn´t sleep, the kitchen was a mess from dinner, the dog peed on the floor and Randall had to leave.

I felt like such a failure to be fustrated and with nothing going well but I just held my little one close till he finally went to sleep. Everything is ready so that when Randall get here we can have a few moments together and I sat and saw your blog. You are such an inspiration to me and seem so perfect though I know you do struggle too.

Blessings my sweet mom of 3 and keep at it! Soon you will be being creative with those girls and doing things together!

I feel like this alot. With four children six yrs and under I find I just cannot find anytime for me to let loose on my creative juices either..hence blogging..helps me with that.

I had to stop typing this post to go get a 10 month old escaping up the stairs..lol.

Just stay in the moment. Like my blog header states..."It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day to day basis"-Margaret Bonnano

Amen! I feel this struggle with one baby so I can only imagine what you are feeling! Everyday your babies grow and change. In the blink of an eye they will be grown! Slowly you will be able to get all of that creative energy out! Enjoy these precious moments with your babies!

It's such a hard job, being Mom. But so worth it. You will never regret doing just what you're doing, loving and holding those babies. :) (My babies are now 21 and 22; can you tell I'm a little nostalgic for the baby days?)
