This is enough for today…

I actually wrote this post awhile ago, and never shared it. It is as fitting today as it was a couple of weeks ago when I wrote it. I’m learning that being a mom to small kiddos means learning to change my schedule. Being flexible is not always easy for me because I like to cross things off my list of things to do! HA Doesn’t always happen, and that it okay. I’m not sure why I feel like I need to write it down, but somehow it makes me feel better to see it in writing.

There are days like today where not a lot of things on my list of things to do are accomplished. 

We spent the night dealing with leg aches, tummy aches and a fussy baby. Sometimes just surviving through the day is all I can do.

Forget the laundry.

Forget the emails or proofs that need attention.

Forget the dirty bathroom or dishwasher that needs to be emptied.

Forget the fact that I am still in my pajamas at noon (okay maybe this happens on the busy days too).

Sometimes all I can focus on is making sure my boys are fed, bathed and take an afternoon nap. I’m the kind of person who likes to accomplish certain things during a day. I feel like I should always be doing something.

On days like this when I have zero energy, I have to make myself sit on the couch and just relax. There is always tomorrow, and these days with my boys are passing me by so quickly.

Today I am just going to sit, and document my babies sleeping.

That is enough.

There’s a lot of wisdom in this post. I remember feeling the same way. Except we don’t have any photos to document it… I’d be napping right there beside them. 🙂

Just read your post… Being a new mom, it really helped me to know I am not the only one who feels this way! Thanks for giving me some perspective. Best wishes!

I had a day like this today…I felt like I was getting less than nothing accomplished! Then I remembered your comment, “Enough. This is enough for today.” Love it.
