the ups and downs

So I usually don't write much on this blog but after being home with my kiddos for a whole week by myself I feel the need to vent- but not in the way that you would expect. Yea this week has been really rough and exhausting but I learned something today that sadly I am sure I will need to be reminded of again- which is sometimes you just need to let go and enjoy the present. As a parent I know that I get so wrapped up in what needs to be done that I forget to simply enjoy my kids and not worry about the mess they are making but how much fun we are having making the mess. With my third on the way I better learn to not worry about the mess so much as I worry whether or not I am teaching them and loving them enough. What a difference it made in my day to try to be part of their world instead of trying to make them be patient in mine.
