Do you guys ever have those days that you are like, MAN! I am totally on top of my life, so productive, and the best mom ever? I had one of those days Monday… And then Tuesday it all came crashing down. Isn’t it funny how we can go from feeling like we are on top of the world, the best mom and wife ever, and having everything in our lives in order to being a complete and total hot mess? Sometimes it seems like everything important somehow falls through the cracks. You feel like you write it all down and remember it all until you forget to show up for work, an important doctors appointment, or deliver dinner to the sweet neighbor who just had a baby. While it is so hard to have days like that and everything is crashing down, it is days like that, that really make us appreciate when we do have everything together. Even though our lives really aren’t as big of a hot mess as we think they are, it sure knocks us down pretty hard. It is only up to ourselves to pick us back up though. We have to look at the little victories in our lives. Things like that we are awake and moving in the morning, that we may not be dressed, but the baby is fed, everyone is alive when dad gets home from work… We are our hardest critic, but we also are our biggest cheerleader and motivator if we can push past those hard days. We are the only thing that is holding ourselves back from greatness. So momma, you are amazing! You are doing great. Pick yourself up and get a cookie and a Diet Coke. You love your sweet babies and that is all that matters! You are a champion of your own life!
