Everything is always brighter the next day. I won't say that I woke up today and all my problems melted away. That just isn't true. But things seem more in the realm of manageable.
I look at my kids and try to remind myself just how lucky I am to have them. Next year (heck - even next month) is it really going to matter that Jack refused to nap unless he was held? I don't think so. It is hard to remember that in my moments of intense (and irrational) frustration, but I know it to be true. I do.
I just want to thank everyone for the texts, emails, phone calls, facebook messages, and comments (wow - there are a lot of ways to get ahold of me...). I felt a lot of support yesterday from folks who know what I'm going through. Mothers of all kind share a bond. Whether you have one kid, twins, twins and a toddler...we are all fighting the same fight. And I'm thankful to you all for reaching out to me when I needed it. I hope each and everyone of you knows that I will support you when you need it as well.
Life is beautiful when you have these three precious souls in your life.
All I know is I better get one hell of a mother's day present this year.
: ) At least I still have my sense of humor : )
