I know I am not the only mom who needs more hours in the day. I'm definitely tired by the end of the day. I'm using every minute I have, yet it is still not enough. The days feel like they are slipping through my hands and I don't have a chance to grasp them. I can't stand it.
I can't stand that Jaden and Naomi seem to be gone so much. They are still so little, but gone so much. Monday - Friday in school for 6 hours. Once home, it's homework, at least one of them has an activity to get to-by the time we are back.....dinner, baths, story, bed. Sometimes, I feel like I barley get to "see" them.
We are busy. School, homework, dance, soccer, swimming, PT, OT, ST, work(the job that pays me :), playing, laundry-(is there a trick to this?), cleaning, stopping at the park-just 20 minutes mom?!, reading, dinner-that would also mean cooking. The list goes on and on and most of us have the same list.
Maybe I don't need more time in a day, maybe I need another day added to the week? I just wish I had more time to soak them up.....these four girls of mine who are growing way to fast. Who make me smile (and frustrate me too:). Who have made me such a better person and made my life so much more exciting. Who continue to teach me new things and transform me. These girls, who I am so lucky to have in my life. And I am so grateful for.
More time might be good, but we had today and it was a beautiful day....And I'm looking forward to all of tomorrow too!
