As moms we can often overlook the small things and take them for granted. It’s not until those small hectic things are no longer there that we miss them.
The hustle and bustle of getting the kids ready for school,making lunches and picking up every flippin small toy that we step on. Laundry from multiple wardrobe changes a day, especially if you have a daughter, and baths for filthy kids covered in food and dirt. Those are the small things that add up to the choas that I’m talking about.
The past week my kids have been with my in laws due to my bedrest and my inability to cook, clean and bathe them. They are having a lot of fun, but as for me, it’s lonely. Daily life just isn’t the same without them. I have no one to bathe, feed or pick up after. No one to read bedtime stories to or laugh with. Plain & simple, life without kids is boring! They are my heart that keeps me going.
This is such a huge reminder to me of how much I love them. They make me so happy. You only know this love if you are a mother. It’s powerful.
