The job is mine

I’m a firm believer in the saying that God never gives us something we can’t handle….so on morning like today I must remind myself that.

Mornings where number 3 is crying, and I mean full on mental break down, throwing-herself-on-the-floor crying, over the fact that she felt she didn’t have enough tooth paste on her tooth brush. While number 2 is in her room crying because she doesn’t want to wear jeans today.  Meanwhile I’m desperately trying to maneuver my hair into something more suitable than the standard mom bun when I walk into cosmetology school- you know where I’m supposed to be learning how to make others look amazing even when my no-make up mom bun self is feeling less than desirable at 6:23 am.

But YES! God gave those hard-headed, stubborn, whiny, yet beautiful, loving, and hilarious girls TO ME! Believe it or not I am the lucky one.

I am blessed.

There is no one out there more suited for them than me, their crazy hot mess of a mom. I am the only one up for this job.

This heck of a job.. this job that will never end… this job that is the most tiresome yet rewarding job there is.

This job where I get paid in hugs and secret kisses and homemade cards with princess stickers all over them.

I can’t promise them the best of everything but I will promise to always do my best! 🙂

  1. And those hugs are worth more then anything else in the world. I found myself staring at my youngest this passed Friday night while she was sleeping next to me. As hard as it can be to keep the three of them happy I don’t know where I would be without them. They have taught me patience and forgiveness. They have showed me what true love is. I am thankful for my princesses through the good times and the crying and complaining.

    1. I love watching my kids sleep.. is that creepy? Anyway as a parent its almost comforting to know that the kids will always keep you in check. They depend on us for everything and in a weird way we can depend on them to bring us to brink of insanity and bring us more joy than our hearts can take. Sometimes they teach us as much as we teach them and its a beautiful thing. 🙂
