This is my life lately.
Baby in his pjs all day, kids making me crazy, and Mom Hat.
June 29th 2018 I am finally able to come up for air.
I’ve spent the last 6 months in the trenches. Fighting for my relationship with my kids.
Fighting for my relationship with my husband.
Fighting to find my way back to my path.
I haven’t answered a lot of phone calls. I’ve missed out on every single Mom Date invitation. We DID make it to one birthday party…. late.
My camera is dusty and neglected. I haven’t felt very excited about anything except “Make it to June”
June came and went …. and I’m still here.
June DID give me what I’ve been praying for… dinner as a family. The kids were thrown off. Noah didn’t know how to just sit. NJ was excited to have everyone looking at him for once.
Today is a take a breath day. For me and you.
It’s a day to realize it’s not a countdown to The End. It is a journey filled with ups and downs, flat tires and hours at Walmart, and late night wrestle sessions.
Our journey has taken us into a new family with a new baby and new job opportunities.
July 1st I’m picking up my camera and taking a picture of the first thing I see (most likely coffee and the eyes of a 15 month old).
July 1st I’m grabbing all the fireworks. Just kidding… some of the fireworks.
July 1st I’m planning to reconnect with my best friend. That guy I said “I Do” to.
July 1st I’m going to call that friend I cancelled on.
Take a deep breath and keep swimming.
It’s not perfect.
I’m here to write another day.
I’ll take it.
