Overwhelmed

Dear Reader,

I sincerely apologize for the infrequency of my posts lately. It seems that being a working Mom is getting the best of me. I am overwhelmed and stressed and ready to explode. These are the parts that I would love to hide. It would be amazing if I could post only the happy, funny things. Sometimes I just don’t want to share my little nugget of happiness because its what I need to hold onto to get through the day. This Mom is on the struggle bus and the air conditioner seems to have broken.

Yesterday for the first time ever I cried when I dropped the girls off at the sitter. I’m sure it won’t be the last but I hated it so much. I felt inadequate. I felt for the first time that I was betraying them by working instead of staying home with them. I know that they are in amazing hands. I know that I would despise being a stay at home mom (bless the women who can handle it). The girls are getting over strep and they just want Mommy snuggles. At this point I’m just trying to keep my head above water.

I’m thankful for everyone who helps us and my husband who has flown solo with the kids alot lately. He’s even learning how to cook. I definitely couldn’t do this without my tribe and a sense of humor.

So Dear Reader, if you’re the praying type send prayers. The Twin Tiny Rulers also accept offerings of food and snuggles (when they let me put them down). I’ll survive. We’ll all be fine. Thank you for sticking with me through the crazy.

With Love and Laughs,

Diana

I’m just a first time Mom with 3 bonus kids, set of twins, 2 bad dogs, and a full time job who’s trying to get through parenthood and life without completely screwing it up.
