When You Just Want To Quit
Let’s just be honest. Parenting is exhausting in every possible way. I see where I miss the mark every day and fear the worst: that I’m not doing enough to make a difference. That maybe this whole kid thing was a huge mistake and my kids are going to need serious therapy to recover from my shortcomings. I needed to read this, this morning! Maybe you do too.
Yes, last night was exhausting. The eternal struggle of having two little ones, both not wanting to stay in bed…. I elected not to sleep. That is something that I will surely pay for.
My beloved, I keep telling you that you are doing an amazing job…. Because YOU ARE! Parenting was never promised to be easy, it does have its ups and downs. However, in the grand scheme of it all the ups WAY out weigh the downs.
I will continue to do my best to ensure your rest… After all, you are at home with these amazing kiddos all day…. You need the sleep more than I.
Now, keep your head up and your smile bright… And…
*insert that goofy operatic singing tone you act is annoying… But makes you giggle*
don’t you dare look back, keep your eyes in me, I know your holding back… SHUT UP and dance with me.
See… Told you it makes you giggle.
I love you my beloved bride… See you when I get home. I really should get back to work.
